Portsmouth and Frostbite Winter Leagues

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).

Dates are now set:

Frostbite – Second Sunday of the month – assembly 1:30 at the field:
9th November
14th December
11th January
8th February
8th March

BA League (Portsmouth) – Saturday’s at Brockington:
29th November
13th December
24th January
14th February

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. Make sure you give your scoresheets in (Neill will submit the results and return the sheets when done).

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.

Indoor Season

The indoor season is now upon us and as usual we will be shooting at Brockington College, from Wednesday 1st October.

Session times:
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.


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.
