  • Jodie came 3rd of 23 in the under 16 recurve female category
  • Daisy would have been 6th of 12 in the under 12 Barebow female category, but her Archery GB membership hadn’t arrived (even though it shouldn’t have been required!)

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

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.

Thanks to all members that came to our first (and hopefully not last) quiz night.


Teams competed on rounds: General Knowledge, Food, Archery, Music, Pictures and DingBats. Non archers were pleased when the Archery round consisted of questions like "Where was Norman Stanley Fletcher incarcerated", rather than the assumed impossible archery questions. Although the odd dingbat archery question was thrown in, such as "2 L on a R B".


Thanks to Jo, Mark, Susie, Alex, Steve for all their help setting up and producing food for the evening.


Winning team was "Them lot over there" - (the Steve Baker clan + Gary Stevens)


We made a profit of £65 on the evening, which will go towards our collection for the Hampshire Air Ambulan...
