New tuning session

From the 8th of November a tuning session will now be available every Sunday from 12pm-2pm, this takes place between the AM and PM session.

Please note that the scheduled sessions, as always, will take priority over any tuning.

My advice is to shoot the morning session if you wish to put a score in, if you do any tuning or shooting before the PM session and then score a round it will not be recorded.


Also, to save another post, there is an update on the calendar page.

Halloween fun shoot this Friday 30th October

Just a reminder that this Friday we’ll be having the Halloween fun shoot again.

If anyone would like to help out, by bringing some home-made or shop bought nibbles, any help with these and some decorations would be greatly appreciated on the night.

You will be shooting at the themed targets only as it is a fun night for everyone to meet up and have a bit of fun, so no serious shooting or proper faces allowed. Fancy dress welcome.

Archery GB Handicaps & Classifications

Alan Hudson has kindly studied the Archery GB Shooting Administration Procedures and produced the Cleadon Archers guide to Archery GB Handicaps & Classifications.

The document is available on the site in the following locations:

Please read these and note the guide to filling in your score sheet correctly.

It is your responsibility to fill in your name, the round you are shooting, the date, bow style and add up your scores, hits and golds. Your score sheet must be signed by yourself and a target captain, who should be present throughout the round.

If your score sheet is not filled in correctly and signed it will be discarded by the records officer.

Viking Trophy 1st Leg

This Sunday is the 1st Leg of the Viking Trophy.

This will now be ran over the two sessions to give as many members the chance to take part as possible.

Remember only your first session score will count towards this shoot. So if you do shoot in both sessions (space permitting) only your morning score counts. If you do shoot on the morning and do not enter a score or just practice you will not be allowed to enter a score if you then shoot on the afternoon session. The records officer or a committee member will be attending both sessions to collect in the score sheets.

Carpets, carpets and yet more carpets

Hello All.

For a bit of fun we are going to start taking photos of some of the carpet rolling disasters, successes and avoidance. To start it off one of our beginners agreed to be the first to get his photo taken after his carpet rolling disaster (his second attempt was much better)
Remember to do your part in rolling up the carpets at the end of a shoot, whether you have shot or not, if everyone helps it’s so much easier. After all it’s every members club.

Longbow and Compound Postals

Please read the following from Kate:

Hello everyone!

We have put a longbow AND compound postal on for this Friday, no it’s not on the calendar because it’s just been decided.

Very very sorry for the short notice but I didn’t realise some postals started in October, thought it was November.

4 longbows and 3 compounds for the teams!

Thank you very much!

Club A.G.M.

The club AGM is next Thursday so please get your nominations for committee posts in to the club secretary by this Friday or Monday at the latest. So if you would like to put your name forward, get someone to propose and second your application for the post your interested in and get it to the club secretary.

If you want to get more involved in our club you don’t have to be a committee member; there is always plenty to do, indoors and outdoors, either helping in field parties at tournaments, organizing tournaments, helping with raffles or general maintenance, all sorts of stuff. Just let any committee member know your interest or availability in helping out.

Remember it is every members club………
