Hard work and dedication to the sport is paying benefits to Gilbert who this weekend shot a new club record (1211 FITA) , beating the previous help by Murray since 2002 by 1 point and also a new double FITA record (2394), beating his own from May this year by 5 points. A great performance which will see him in good form going into the Euronations in July. This also secures Gilbert's Master Bowman classification - and it's only June!
Congratulations to Gilbert for his selection to the Scottish Squad who will compete at the Euronations tournament in Guernsey in July this year. Hundreds of hours of shooting and thousands of arrows have finally brought him this major achievement. Welcome to the small select band of club members who have worn the Scottish shirt!
