The York for Gents consisted of 6 dozen arrows at 100 yards, 4 dozen arrows at 80 yards and 2 dozen arrows at 60 yards while the Hereford for Ladies consisted of the same number of arrows, but at distances of 80, 60 and 50 yards. In the National Junior Championship held at Lilleshall National Sports Centre 10 years old Lauren Turner in her first year of competition placed 6th in the Metric 5 with 1167 points and 8th in the Bristol 5 with 1112 points. This was followed with 2nd place and 1166 points in a Metric 5 in a tournament at Cheltenham race course which gave her a Junior Master Bowman award. In windy conditions on Sunday she scored 1075 points in a Bristol 5, but was beaten into 2nd place by club mate Freya Palmer who scored 1103 points.
