Alan Blythyn - Obituary
It is with deep regret that it as to be announced that Alan Blythyn passed away after a relatively short illness on Monday 13th April 2015.
Alan was a member of Friskney Bowmen. He also had been a member of all the archery associations at one time or another. He joined EFAA after the passing of Marlene his wife.
Whilst a member of EFAA he travelled to tournaments with Joe, Richard, and I.
He looked forward to the classification shoots as much as the two day Championships. At the 2009 EFAC he joined with us and Jackie Willoughby in a cottage near Abergavenny. Whilst there if I could not find him and Joe all I had to do was look out the window to the smoking area in the garden and there they would be chatting about the slipping and sliding in the mud they had done and about the archers they had shot with that day.
On another occasion whilst shooting at the Nationals at March Hare 2010 he got his own award during the shoot as he shoot what I think was target 11 down a avenue of trees there was a branch over head and Alan managed to hit it. Promptly the marshals cut it down and tracked him down and presented the branch with the arrow still in it. It caused a laugh for months when ever there was any low branches.
Actually I think it was the last thing I joked about with him at the last shoot I saw him at last October. Each of us that knew him has a little something that we will remember him by. The other thing I will remember is his face the day we got the trailer tent and we took it to Friskney archery’s field for him to see, he had arrived early so was there when we arrived. We could see that he did not think it was big enough for us all to get into because of the size of the trailer. But he soon changed his mind once we opened it up (He later told us that he had not realised how small a trailer tent was when folded) . He also never would sleep in the bed only in the chair in the awning, so I told him he was on guard all night. He would make tea early morning and pass one to us.
So Alan RIP and to Alan’s family we send our condolences and our thoughts are with them at this sad time.
