Charity Shoot and York-Hereford Entry Forms

There have been rumours that this shoot might be cancelled due to new AGB Range Registration Rules…

LAOFAC have confirmed with AGB and the Lead Judge that the competition can go ahead as planned this year. Formal registration of the range and any dispensations will be required for future years.  

These tournaments are now open for entries. We are using a new online entry system for the first time this year (please let Neill know if you have any problems – secretary@laofac.com.)

For LAOFAC members, it is similar to the external entrants process below, but by logging into the membership site (paysubsonline.com) and selecting the Events option, most of the form will be pre-filled in – and if you have already pre-authorised payments you will not need to enter your bank details again as the direct debit will automatically be applied. Please note that members may not receive the confirmation emails at the moment – were trying to fix that).

The new process is…

  1. Access the new system from the Tournaments page, or from the Individual Event.
  2. Select the event from the list of all events (eg click on ’27th Annual Charity Shoot’),
  3. Select the number of entries in each category (Senior/Junior/Round – you can book and pay for more than one person in one go).
  4. Fill in full details for each person entering,
  5. Make an online payment from your bank account via a one off direct debit. Please note this may take up to 7 days to be applied to your account and the bank transaction will show as ‘GoCardless’).

You will receive 2 email confirmations – one confirming the amount and another confirming that your event entry has been received.

Field layout

The field has been set out for the 2017 outdoor season and all members are requested to help maintain the layout throughout the season.

Please feel free to move any wheeled boss up or down the field to your required distance but please ensure the boss is returned to its original position once you have finished shooting.

There are 2 static bosses set at the 20 Yard mark at the left and right most edges of the shooting area, please do not shoot outside of these bosses.

Many thanks and happy shooting.

L&RCAA Junior Outdoor shoot dates for 2017

Message from Carol Smith at County for all Junior archers;

The schedule of junior shoots for the 2017 outdoor season is now available (see link below).  Further details for each shoot will be sent out nearer to each date, however you may wish to make a note in your diaries.
We still have spaces left for the next junior shoot on the 7th May 2017 (see here for details and entry form). This would be a good opportunity for any junior to experience shooting a 12 dozen round, which they may not get a chance to do at their own club.
Any queries please let me know.
I would be grateful if you could share this information within your networks, clubs, parents etc.
