Hangover Shoot 28th December
A beautifully crisp sunny day saw eleven archers enjoy the shoot at Brocks Copse. Thank you to Matt for planning the shoot and to those that gave up their time the day before to set the targets out. The morning was normal scoring with a Bowhunter (one shot per target) round in the afternoon. Mince pies and warm mulled wine were consumed with gusto at lunchtime.

Open Weekend Wooden Arrow Shoot 27th & 28th September.
A fine weekend and excellent company made for a great shoot with a standard scoring course run on Saturday morning and Sunday morning plus a Bowhunter (single arrow at each target) round on Saturday afternoon. There was some drama when Ian Watkins sprained his ankle and had to be taken offsite by ambulance but he still managed to win a gold medal in his class! Several of our own club members participated in some or all of the weekend's shooting (DNS = did not shoot rather than did not score) and medals were awarded to our visitors. Denis Alston was the worthy winner of the Brian Quaintmere Memorial Trophy for the highest bowhunter score of the weekend. Thank you to all those involved in contributing towards making it such an enjoyable weekend and we look forward to welcoming back our overseas visitors (hopefully with a few more of their fellow archers) next year.

Midsummer Shoot - 22nd June
A hot sultry day challenged members to stay cool while testing themselves on 36 targets including several multi shots at our new deer and crows! We welcomed three new members including two juniors who show great promise. Congratulations to Gary for third place, Matt for second and Martin taking first.
Bowhunter Trophy Shoot - 30th March
As previously poor weather prevented us from holding the Bowhunter Trophy Shoot earlier in the year, we chose to do it today instead of the usual BST shoot. Thanks to John and Martin for planning a fabulously challenging course and to all those that helped set up yesterday.
Congratulations to Anna for third place, Gary C for second and well deserved first place went to Martin.
