Red Tassel Awarded to Mitch and Alex

The Red Tassel Award was instigated in 1955 to recognise sustained effort over a prolonged period of service to the Essex County Archery Association by reason of enthusiasm, commitment and practical work, making a substantial contribution to archery in the interests of the County. This award should be most sparingly presented in order to enhance its value and prestige.

Recommendations for such an award can only be made by a holder of the Red Tassel and sanctioned by the existing holders of the Award.

Since that time, thirty-eight Red Tassel Awards have been awarded, the latest at the Annual General Meeting of 17th February 2018 to Alex Purser and Mitch Vaughan who, it was unanimously agreed, fulfilled the criteria with their sustained support of the County.

The full list of Red Tassel Holders can be seen on the Red Tassel Page

Congratulations to both.
