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.

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………

Next Thursday if weather permits is going to be field prep for the upcoming Tyne-Tees shoot. So if your available this coming Thursday 24th September, work will be starting at 10 am at the field. We will also use the Friday incase the weather stops us on the Thursday.

Give and Win Sport

The club has recently registered via Archery GB and Give and Win Sport to the following to help raise funds.

Give and Win Sport is a new society lottery which provides a simple way for sport and recreation clubs and organizations to raise funds. It is not the same as the National Lottery. Think of it as an online fundraising raffle – when you buy a ticket for £2 you will be entered into a draw to win cash prizes and £1 of that will go directly to your chosen club. In addition, if you are lucky enough to win our amazing £25,000 jackpot, your nominated club will also receive a £25,000 windfall! The more tickets you buy and the more often you play, the more chances you have to win and more money goes to your club.

So if you fancy a flutter please go to the link below. Please also feel free to pass on this link to friends and family to help raise funds if you would like.

Good luck!

Archery improvement course

Over the last indoor season we ran an archery improvers course in conjunction with Archery GB, this proved very beneficial to those who took part and so we would like to run a similar course over the summer.

The summer course will consist of 3 x 2 hour sessions. These sessions will consist of slow motion video capture to review technique, basic bow maintenance and tuning and then a final review. Dates and times have yet to be confirmed but will most likely be a Wednesday night or Saturday afternoon.

If you would like to register your interest there will be a flyer put up on the notice board in the big container, please fill in your details on this form or if you don’t have access to the container ask Alan (Dug) Dunnighan to register your interest. Alan is available most club nights and Sunday’s.

Big Weekend update

After worrying about today and if anyone was going to turn up I think it has been a very good day.

We had about 40 people come and try archery and everyone seemed to have a really good time.

We had a busier morning than afternoon but we could spend some time with each group and give them more that just here is a bow now lets shoot.

I would like to thank everyone who came down and assisted.

Especially thanks to Alan Hudson​ and Paul Seccombe for helping with the coaching.

Tracy and Adrian who sorted out all of the consent forms and flyers for club info.

Ken Stonley who assisted in the morning getting people ready for the sessions.

Dillon, Gavin and Hannah for assisting with targets and set up and take down.

And everyone else who assisted in any way.

We had the best weather we could have hoped for and all in all it was a good day all round.
