OVERTON BLACK ARROWS

By: online.services | May 20, 2019

All ready for the Big Weekend....


We had a total of 45 people, but they all went through 2 or 3 times, so the coaches were very busy. Plenty of interest for beginners courses - a couple of people already signed up came along too.


Thanks to Jo, Mark, Terry, Susie, Steve B, Mike H, Peter, Eric, Steve A, and other members that chatted to the budding archers.  Thanks also to Sophie Meering from AGB for coming along and supporting us.  Some of you missed the fun we had taking everything down when the rain started.


We had a (sealed) collection tin out for the air ambulance, so I can't give you a count, but there's certainly some money in there!

We had another great day at the Warren today - sunburnt in May, can't be too bad...we had 12 visitors and 9 club members come along today, shooting at 18 targets scattered around the Warren.  I believe that only two arrows were lost the whole day long - one on the practice butts and one - well done Rob - on a 50m target in the woods.  Rob now feels he is a "proper" field archer.

A few bits of news:


  • James Baker did really well at the AC Delco Easter FITA and came 1st in the U16 compound category with a score of 874 (Metric III round)
  • 19th March saw 11 visitors and 8 club members shooting at the first Warren practice shoot.  We had a great day and the weather was fantastic!
  • 27th April saw 12 visitors and 7 club members shooting at the Warren again, weather a little less nice, but picked up towards the end of the day.  Some nice feedback from the guys at Tenzone:
    • As secretary of Tenzone Bowmen may I thank your club for their wonderful hospitality shown to us on Saturday at The Warren. Despite the windy weather we all had a great time

  • Jodie came 3rd of 23 in the under 16 recurve female category

Maurice

Maurice was one of the judges at this years SCAS indoor championships.  He looks very happy about it, almost a "cracking cheese, Grommit" smile.


....I am told that he had his bottom tweaked as the photo was taken.  Funny thing is, I can see all the ladies arms... :-)

We are planning to get back into the Warren soon, and run a monthly club session there on a 12 target course.


All but two of the bosses survived the winter OK, if a little out of place - due to sheep finding them a nice place to sleep behind, and pushing them over.


We will get a working party in there soon and start some field shooting!!

BoB team

Five members shot at the Battle of Basing this weekend, and achieved some good results:


They shot a double round - a WA25 followed by a WA18.

Recurve

  • Richard came 5th with a score of 1098
  • Chris came 36th with a score of 943
  • Matt came 44th with a score of 827
  • Jodie came 1st (U16 ladies) with a score of 991

Barebow
  • David came 16th with a score of 168


Richard was also part of the Hampshire team, which came first overall, beating Surrey, Oxford, Essex, London and Berkshire who all fielded complete teams.

Richard also took part in the "Nerves of Steel" competition, where a ring of steel is placed on the target which becomes smaller and smaller after each round.  This year, 7 people (including Richard) shared the title as they all hit the s...

Many thanks to all those that came to the Skittles evening this week.  I think we largely proved that skill with a bow does not translate to an ability to hit skittles.


Well done to the wining team, and thanks to Jo for (once again) organising us!

Although the event was not specifically for charity, we had a bit of surplus and so have added this, £24 to the air ambulance fund that we are building.
