Congratulations to Michaela Lake on her selection for the GB team taking part at the European 3D Field Championships in Tallinn, Estonia on 15th – 20th September.
Michaela was for some time an archery mum, one of the unheralded band of parents who spend most of their free time ferrying offspring to and from practise and tournaments. Then she took over the job of County Records Officer for the Sussex CAA in late 2011, before asking if she could run our tournament diary. She has performed both roles with outstanding and unfailing dedication, to the point where the diary has been referred to as “amazing stuff!” and “the bible” by its happy users.
Since taking her beginners course with us in January 2013, Michaela has developed a passion and talent for field archery (not to mention clout, in which she took the 2013 SCAS Ladies Barebow title at her first attempt). Less than two years later she’s a GB international; so give it up, people, and shower your congratulations on one of the nicest and most talented people in Sussex archery.
