If anyone wants to represent the county to check out the County Team section of the county website for the selection criteria.
Archers who attained the status of Grand Master Bowmen (GMB) in the last outdoor season will automatically be selected for the first county match.If this is the case, please let the Team Captain know you are GMB.
Also to keep a regular eye on it for when this years matches are listed and to let the county captain know which shoots you are available for.
IMPORTANT – County Indoor Champs
Due to the lack of interest in this year’s tournament a decision will be made by the 19th of January on whether one of the halls will need to be cancelled. This will reduce the Double entries by 50%, meaning only 36 maximum places will be available.
As of 13/01/2018 we only have 27 archers in the Double Tournament.
L&RCAA Indoor Championships
You are all probably aware we have a Paralympian in our ranks in the shape of our Chairman Fred Stevens. What you may not know is we have another archer aiming to follow Fred’s path and represent TeamGB at the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020, in the form of Steve Gill.
If you would like to help Steve on the road to Tokyo he is always appreciative of help arrow pulling and tea/coffee making down at the field.
And if anyone would like to help out with funding his endeavours you can make a donation here;
Dear all at LAOFAC,
Since it is the start of the new year, the University of Leicester Archery Club would like to express our greatest thanks to all of you at LAOFAC for all your help in 2017. It has been a tough year for our society with dealing with a dramatic increase in membership numbers as well as resolving personal disputes, we would not have been able to do it without the help of the LAOFAC members and committee!
We would like to personally thank Paul Broome-Faulkner as our university representative who has done an amazing job over the last year (and all previous years) helping our society with problems we’ve faced, and helping us get through our beginners course with no injuries!
We would also like to thank Alan, Vic, Gill and Fred for giving up your own time to help with coaching both to our newbies on our beginners course and helping our experienced archers be able to hit the target!
And of course we would like to thank Mark for all his help with memberships, us students aren’t the best with handing over money so he’s probably got the toughest job and we know how much work goes on behind the scenes to keep a cub up and running.
We would also like to thank all who make the club what it is, those who provide hours of entertainment on the line (yes, we’re talking about Fred and Steve), those who bring Bacon Cobs at breakfast and every other member of LAOFAC because without your enthusiasm for the sport and the atmosphere you provide we wouldn’t have any members!
So thank you for all you’ve done in 2017 and here’s to a great 2018!
Many Thanks from
The committee and members of the University of Leicester Archery Club
