2017 Welsh and Open Championships were due to be held at Red Kite Carmarthen, 1st Day proved to be wet and windy and late morning the wind was so strong heavy branches cracked in a tree above Target 1. Swift action was taken before any archers or helpers were injured. After assessment Llantwit Major offered for Day 2 of the Championship to be held at Fonmon. We are grateful to both clubs for making the 2017 Championship take place. Day 2 was sunny and went without any more drama. We would like to thank archers from England and Scotland for coming and supporting our event. We hope next year to improve with more archers taking part. Red Kite successfully managed to get branches down from trees without any damage to their clubhouse. Well done Cyril and team.
