Christmas and New Year roundup
A quick roundup of happenings in December/January!
Christmas Fun Shoot
We had a great turn out for our annual Christmas fun shoot., shooting at Balloons, Snowmen and all sorts of Christmas targets. The prize for the best Christmas jumper went to Mark Davies; sorry there is no picture as thankfully he removed it fairly quickly as it played havoc with peoples colour vision.
The head to head match came down to a family final between Steve & Alex Allam, where Steve just pipped his son to the centre of the gold, whilst onlookers tucked into the Christmas goodies provided by Jo.
Peter Hanney was visiting India and met up with members of Zito archery, where he represented the club in the sweltering heat, 38° inside the clubhouse., certainly a little warmer than back here in the Overton.
Once again Richard and Jodie were representing the club at a competition, this time it was the National Indoor Championships.
Jodie qualified 57th of 78 ladies with a score of 463 and she was, for the first time shooting in the seniors division despite still being eligible for the under 16s.
Richard qualified 19th of 148 men with a score of 563. In the head to head Richard was unfortunately knocked out in the first round and so came 17th..
