A bit of a late blog this one, but well done to all members that turned up for our work day on the 14th.  We had a total of 25 members there, which is amazing!  We managed to trim the hedge (thanks Steve T!), clear and strim borders, changed the foam in a number of bosses - repainting them at the same time and repairing frames where needed and general tidying up.  All this was followed by a well-deserved BBQ and cake.

 

Afterwards, we presented Les with the presidents medal certificate - a lasting reminder of the award we gave him last year.  Les was himself there since 7:30am mowing...as he does on a very regular basis for us.  Here is a pic:

Well done to Peter and Mike (sorry if I've missed others) - we raised £160 pounds during August by providing have a go session for school kids.  That's 80 kids!

8th/9th July: Field Archery competition

We held our annual field shoot at the weekend, combined with both the Hampshire and English Field Archery Championships. The event was a great success and the club received many compliments - about the course itself and also about our catering, cakes, ice lollies - the lot! 

Seventy-four archers attended, shooting a mixture of American flatbow, Barebow, Compound, Compound as Longbow, Longbow, Recurve and Tradtional.  Five juniors shot the course - all girls - so Jodie, there is no excuse next year.

I think that the team can be incredibly proud of a successful event - we had about 12 members assisting this year, along with the Whitchurch scout groups (tea + cake) and Duncan brought in one of h...

At a recent international tournament at Exbury, Hampshire, Jodie Buckner came 3rd in the Junior Ladies recurve class whilst Richard Buckner came 5th in the Gentlemen’s class.  The Bank holiday weekend saw the 50th All British & Open Field Archery Championship in South Wales. Club member Bill Jones competed in barebow and achieved 15th place in Great Britain. Club President, Peter Turner, was one of the judges at this year’s event. He competed in the first championships in 1968 and has been at every one since - either as an archer, judge or, on the organizing committee when the club staged the event at  Kingsclere in 2012.
