In the meantime I will take this opportunity to thank Ray for his contribution to the WFAA since his appointment in 2010. Ray was the first coach in Wales to qualify as an IFAA instructor and as our Master Coach has been responsible for rolling out the IFAA Instructor system across Wales. This, together with his leadership of the National Field Archery Squad has had a huge effect on the quality of archery in Wales and has directly resulted in Wales' fortunes on the world stage being transformed. Ray's work over the past 6 years has seen a steep rise in the volume of Welsh medals won at international tournaments and has seen Wales' World Championship tally rise from 2 to 6 in our most successful period ever. For this work I would like to thank Ray on behalf of the membership of the WFAA for a job superbly well done!
WFAA President, on behalf of the General Committee
