Several games then allowed the 3 teams to compete against each other and it was a very close test of skills. Although tricky to strike the target circles we had a couple of accurate hits so well done to all. This shows that anyone new to archery can really develop some good basic skills in a very short time. The players found it much more fun to go for the opposing team as the targets don't squeal when hit!
We then ran some 'Castle Attack' games with each team trying to defend and survive an attack for a fixed time period. Good fun, but it proved difficult when the referee removed parts of the castle (inflatable bunkers) every 30 seconds.
Feedback was brief from these 11 and 12 year old's (but that was to be expected from this age group), but the shouts of 'Cool', 'Brilliant' and 'Awesome fun!' said it all.
