OVERTON BLACK ARROWS

By: online.services | May 28, 2019

Over the Winter months we again entered a team into the Perris Junior Indoor League.

https://www.perrisarchery.co.uk/perris-indoor-junior-league-25-w.asp

 

Last year we did very well and topped division 3, so this year we moved up to division 2

Unfortunately, Alex Allam became too old, so could no longer compete as a junior in this league.

 

We started the season with only 3 recurve and 1 barebow junior archers (3 best Half Portsmouth scores had to be submitted each month). Unfortunately Hannah injured her shoulder in November.

We competed in 4 of the 7 matches using Daisy’s barebow score (this league doesn’t give any handicap between barebows and recurves, so it was always going difficult to win)

I think that we did very well to get 4th place.

 

Daisy’s scores kept getting better each month and although her average score only placed her 6th of 6 of all Barebow Girls (2nd of 2 under 12 Barebow Girls), Daisy’s score would have placed her 7th of 10 as an under 12 Recurve Girl, which is fantastic.

 

Jodie’s average score was 4th of 106 of all Recurve Girls (2nd of 36 under 16 Recurve Girls), Jodies average score matched the girl in 1st place (u16), who is currently one of the best Junior Girls in the country.

 

Hannah’s average score was 90th of 106 of all Recurve Girls (21st of 26 under 14 Recurve Girls), but this includes a score following her injury, so not a true reflection of her ability.

 

Dan’s average score was 6oth of 115 of all Recurve Boys (25th of 46 under 16 Recurve Boys), however it was excellent to see Dan’s scores improve over last year!

 

Next year we need to stop Hannah doing cartwheels, handstands, etc and so doesn’t get injured.

We’ll sneak some sights/stabilisers onto Daisy’s bow.

And we’ll make sure Dan’s nocking points don’t move!

24hr Sponsored Charity shoot


On the 21st June, Overton Black Arrows will be holding a marathon shoot, in aid of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance. 

Club members will be shooting continuous "Frostbite" rounds from 10am Friday until 10am Saturday over the summer solstice.  A minimum of two archers will be shooting at all times at 80cm targets, placed 30 metres from the shooting line. 

Our aim is to reach and exceed a cumulative total of 20,000 points. Both beginners and seasoned competition archers will be taking part, with many different bow styles being represented. 

Anyone who wishes to support the club, and through them the Air Ambulance can donate via the fundraising page: https://uk.virginmoneygi...

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.

  • 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!
