Guy Ely.

It is my sad duty to inform you of the death of Guy Ely. Many of you knew Guy, many more or you will have seen him accompanied by Marjorie at the County Championships each year, keen to meet old friends and always interested in how well (or badly) the archers were doing. You may not be aware that Guy was one of the first of the trained Archery coaches after the war and then one of our first National coaches. He had a significant impact on the development of coaching, was CCO of Hertfordshire on at least 2 occasions and ran the National Junior squad for a period. In addition he was a great support to many coaches in Herts, and trained a significant number of coaches for both Herts and the Per Ardua archery society (the RAF archery organisation). His achievements in coaching resulted in him being made one of the founder members of the GNAS Coaching hall of fame in 2003 (together with Alan Pritchard and John Kember-Smith). In addition Guy was a National Judge and one of the true gentlemen of archery. We all send our sincere condolences to Marjorie and the family at this time.
