The Cleadon indoor open is back again this year, we will be shooting a FITA25 on the 10th December at our Boldon Community Centre home range. This was a very popular event last year so get your entries in early. It will be appreciated if local archers apply to enter the Morning Session if possible.
Find attached the results and awards for the Jimmy Melvin Memorial Longbow Tournament which took place on Saturday 1st July 2017.
Thank you to everyone who helped in the organising of the event and all who entered, and special thanks to those present who helped dismantle the field, it was a great help. The weather was excellent and we hope you all enjoyed the day and hope to see you next year.
Attached is the target list for this Saturdays Jimmy Melvin Memorial Longbow Tournament, let’s hope the weather improves for the weekend!
This is being organised for us by Vivien Davies who has asked me to remind everyone that we need to start at 7.00pm prompt; plus, to make sure that everyone brings their tickets with them as there will be a prize draw. There will also be a Quiz and a raffle, but if anyone wishes to contribute to the raffle, any donations would be welcome.
The last day for buying tickets is Sunday 19th March as Viv needs to give the caterers numbers.
Tonight, Friday 6th January, is our first indoor shooting session of the year. A Happy New Year and good shooting to you all during 2017.
At the committee meeting earlier this past evening, I was instructed to remind you all that to be able to shoot, you must arrive with two pairs of footwear; the pair you are wearing and a pair of smooth soled, none heeled indoor shoes or slippers. No one will be permitted into the bowling area/well without this suitable footwear. (By GNAS/ArcheryGB rules, footwear must be worn when shooting, so shooting in stockinged feet or bare feet is not allowed.)
Usual time: 7 pm to start rolling out the carpets for a 7.15 pm start. I am to remind you all that security cameras are now in place in the hall. Roll out the carpets, don’t throw them out; don’t drag the carpets across the new bowls carpet and when putting them away after shooting don’t bounce them on the bowls carpet to straighten them up; you will be observed. At all times, do be aware of the need not to cause damage or undue wear of the new bowls carpet, or seen to be doing so.
