Indoor Sessions Christmas break

The last indoor session this year will be on Saturday 20th Dec.

We will restart after the Christmas break on Saturday 3rd January.

Don’t forget the Boxing Day shoot – 10 til 12 at the field.
This is a have-go-session (so non archers can take part). Alan and the twiglets have set out a storyline for the shoot (at least I hope that’s what they have done and ‘Alan and the Twiglets’ isn’t the name of his new band and they have a concert lined up for us)!

DMU Students Section

This Autumn we have been working with students from DeMontfort University to help them set up an archery club and affiliate with us. You may have noticed us running some have-a-go sessions and beginners courses with them, and we’ve had a few hardy souls shooting on Saturday afternoons with us – but don’t be surprised if you start seeing large numbers of enthusiastic new archers on the field next year – I’m sure you will make them all welcome.

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.
