Archery GB January Challenge 2016

Archery GB have been running the January challenge for the past few years, Cleadon Archers started submitting scores last year and would like to again this year. The organiser want as many archers as possible submitting their best score for a portsmouth round shot during the month of January. Archers can shoot as many times as they like – just submit their best scores for each bow type they shoot.

Section winners will get a small trophies!

There are no separate categories for juniors but please indicate your age if you want to rub it in how well they shoot compared with the adults.

Please submit your best Portsmouth score from January including hits, golds, name, bow type, sex and age if junior to Alan Dunnighan by the 1st of February either at the club or via the following email

Good shooting everyone.

Hello All,

We now have a Vegas scheduled in on Friday the 8th of January for practice for Ponteland’s Vegas on the 10th of January, because of the asked for Vegas the Junior postal has moved to Friday the 29th of January, the same day as the compound postal.

Thank you!


Hello Everyone

There is a pile of old bricks and stuff ‘dumped’ in our car park, don’t worry about it.

We have very kindly been given it and we are going to use it to hopefully level out the car park, which will hopefully improve it and make it safer, for us and our cars! (we are also using the old stuff located at the very top of the other car park)

It will be moved shortly, we would also really appreciate a few more hands when we start to break it up and spread it around, it will make the job quicker.

Let us know if you’re able to help!

Things have changed

There has been only 1 change to the calendar and that will only apply to juniors, I have moved the junior postal to the 18th of December, the same date as the compound postal, due to some juniors unable to make the previous date.

I have also updated the club records for this month and they will also be put up on the indoor notice board on this coming Wednesday (2/10/15). The same goes for the handicaps, they are updated and will be put on the notice board.

I have also uploaded a file in another post with the handicap adjustment award winners on. This months winner is Paul Cutting with an adjustment of 7. Well done!
