No more time for practice, all equipment safely stowed away tuned to perfection, ready and waiting just like the finely tuned operators for a chance to perform.
Karen Daw experienced Games Archer, past medal winner, on form and looking good to shoot well.
Jill Ruby has stepped up to the mark recently and is shooting the best she has for three years.
Mike Coward looking to go one better than Aland, but realistically any medal placing is an achievement.
Steve Roche, first timer but with a fantastic book of scores. A very capable Archer and well in with a chance.
Bjarne Jacobsen who under achieved in Aland, is up for the challenge and can shoot really well on his day. His day needs to be a week, and that needs to be next week. He will aquit himself much better this year.
Paul Rehel, another newby who has improved beyond recognition since he started the sport since the last Games. I hope that he is realistic in his aims for the Games, if so then I know that he will achieve.
Lucy O’Sullivan first time appearance for Jersey at the Island Games. Well experienced in big competitions and should do well. Hopefully will give the Compound Team a really firm base to build on scorewise.
Shayne Munday has shot well at previous Island Games and this should be no different. A very capable shooter, and hopefully his steady-Eddy style will help the Compounders.
Dan d’Orleans is a newby to the Games and also to Compound bow shooting. Gallantly stepped upto the mark when Mick Jezequel was forced to surrender his place in the Team, and has gone from strength to strength score-wise. An outsider for the title, but a medal place is not beyond his capabilities. Will definitely help the Compound Team score.
Whatever everybody’s objectives, I’m positive that we will achieve over the next week.
