The annual BAA award for "Services to Archery" , the Mary Dolan Memorial Trophy, was presented to Archie Clifton of West Windsor Archers by Celia Stocker the BAA Secretary, at the indoor range at Eton Wick.
Archie had been nominated by both West Windsor Archers and Crowthorne for his long service and support, and was declared the 2019 recipient at the recent BAA AGM.
The surprise caused Archie to be unusually speechless. Congratulations.
