Chairman David Harrison said: "Building on the success of the 2012 London Olympics and with the intention of keeping our sport in the public eye, he is also helping Archery GB to secure further international shoots to be held in this country.
"His determination to promote our sport is unmatched and his is a worthy recipient of this prestigious award."
The Gussy Trophy was donated by the late comic actor Michael Bentine and recognises exemplary service by a wheelchair archer. This year two archers - Mel Clark and Andy Carr - were nominated. The award eventually went to the Paralympics silver medallist but there was more to it than just her achievements at London 2012 and on world, European and national stages. It also recognised her voluntary work.
"She works for Youth Sport Trust, promoting sport and active lifestyles using own experiences - especially working with special needs kids and promoting Paralympic values," said David Harrison. "She is also a volunteer coach at Birmingham University Archery Club, working with their development and elite competitive students and has helped Archery GB with the launch of the Arrows kit."
Another archer who turned in an exceptional performance was Peter Lochman. His score in an American round earned him the coveted Ascham Mazur Trophy.
The Toxophilus Trophy for the best club, county or regional magazine went to the Bowmen of Pendle and Samlesbury's Nocking Point. The Scottish Archery Association's new-look website (www.scottisharchery.org.uk) earned it the Archery GB Regional and County Website Award while the award for the best club website went to Braintree Bowmen www.braintreebowmen.co.uk
There was a standing ovation for Tom Williamson who was made an Honorary Life Member in recognition of his years of outstanding service to archery. The former England team manager was described as "totally committed" in his work at club, county, regional and national levels, as a London 2012 Games Maker, mentoring juniors and coaching with the talent academy at Lilleshall.
Chief Executive David Sherratt said: "He has a real skill of making people want to join in the sport and to feel that they are achieving."
And there was a poignant moment as Stan Snow was named as a Plaquette Award winner for services to archery. Sadly Stan passed away recently and arrangements are being made to present the award to his widow.
