Program:

12:00-16:00 Unofficial practice at Lindome archery club

WC Sweden LogoImpression of the day:

Quite a few of the archers competing in the World Championships Field Archery in Göteborg, Sweden have arrived. We met with the English, the archers from Chinese Taipei, Italy, Australia, the United States and two Germans. The volunteers helping out at the tournament had their briefing at the hotel, umpires arrived and well, the fieldarcher team is there. You can't start a tournament without us, isn't it? The archers will stay this week in Gothia Towers, a huge hotel in Göteborg, next to the Göteborg Exhibition Hall (Scandinavium Mässa). If you had any questions about wood, you missed out on a wonderful opportunity to get informed about everything you wanted to know about logs, wood and planks, but were afraid to ask. The lumberjacks will be gone tomorrow. It is very nice to have all the archers together in one hotel, and this hotel sure is big.

There will be busses transporting the archers to the practice field on Sunday for the unofficial training. This practice field is at the Lindome Archery Club, some 16 kilometers away from the hotel. We checked out the club today to see if people were practicing there on Saturday and met with two German archers (Martina Schacht and Sebastiaan Rohrberg) using the permanent 12 target field around the clubhouse. Lindome is the biggest archery club in the country, with 250 senior members and 200 junior members. We were welcomed at the premises by John with coffee and tea and tapped the club cat "Cat Stevens" on the back. We shot a few pictures and made some video material at the site and checked out the form of the late arriving Mats Inge Smørdal and Petra Ericsson.

We have yet to discover the two other locations where things are happening during this tournament: Gunnebo House and Gardens as well as Trädgårdsföreningen, a park in the middle of town. The weather was okay today, yet showers in the evening. We hope tomorrow is a nice day for pictures, shooters getting wet should not be a problem we think :)
