We have entered teams in the Winter Postal Leagues again this year, where we shoot Portsmouth Rounds indoors (5 dozen at 20 yards on 60 cm faces) and Frostbites outside (3 dozen at 30 metres on 80 cm faces).
We need 2 teams of Recurve archers and 1 Compound (3 people per team – it can be different people each month so don’t worry if you can’t make every shoot) for the rounds each month, starting in November.
Paul will be arranging the dates – look out for these and make sure you are ready by getting your sight markings and practice in – and you can get more bling for your quiver as badges are available from Paul for both these rounds.
Talk to Paul or Neill for more info.
The indoor season is now upon us and as usual we will be shooting at Brockington College, from Wednesday 1st October.
Wednesday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30pm
Saturday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30am
Please arrive earlier to help set up – some sessions were very busy last year and priority will be given to people who help.
The costs for this year are:
Members – Seniors £3.50, juniors £2.50, per session.
Visitors are welcome provided they have a current GNAS registration – the cost is £5.
Join us for a night of fun on Saturday November 1st, 7 til 9 pm for our annual Pumpkin Shoot.
The cost is £4 which includes hot soup.
Don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring along a carved pumpkin to shoot.
Twiglets will be run every Sunday from 1-3pm starting with the Sunday 5th October.
This will run both winter and summer except when the club runs other events.
The first Sunday of every month we will run arrow awards.
In addition the first Saturday of every month we will endeavour to put on a fun shoot from 2pm.
This will enable more people to attend the club’s indoor shooting on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. It should be noted that the indoor charges per session and the minimum distance is 20 yards.
Alan has drawn up some shorter distance rounds for our younger members to shoot called Foresters, Alan will tell you more about this at the last Twiglet summer meeting on Friday 26th September.
If any junior has any ideas for events or activities they would like us to put on, please let Alan know.
Following the success of our last event, we’ll be running another Family Fun Day on Saturday 23rd August. More details are available on our events page.
