Club Championships 7 September

Hi all

Exciting times!
It’s the club championships on 7 September, an opportunity to eat burgers, sausages, cake etc – oh yes, and to shoot some arrows and win medals.

The shoot is for the whole club, no matter whether you joined us this year or have been shooting forever.

There are categories for:
– novice (shooting less that a year)
– intermediate (less than 2 years)
– seniors
– juniors.
Details of the shoot are on the attached entry form.

The past few years we have had a really good turn out so let’s do the same this year.

Please complete and email the completed entry form to me, or leave up at the club, there will be an envelope for entries ( I’ll leave it there tomorrow and some entry forms).

Did I say medals? If I didn’t, there will be medals for each category – even longbow 🙂 (Clive – I spotted you getting in some sneaky longbow practice last week).

I look forward to seeing the entries flooding in.

Shoot straight

Request for help

Hi all

Following on from the email below, this is a reminder that it is the County’s Fita Star (WA1440) this weekend at Redborne Upper School in Ampthill.
The shoot is being organised by Kestrels, but it is a County Shoot and we should all chip in and help if we are able.

You will see from Helen’s email below that help is required in setting up and taking down the field over the weekend, please let Helen know if you can help out. There are jobs to do during the weekend to make sure the shoot goes smoothly.

For those of you that are new to the sport and want a look at how a shoot run and to support some of your clubmates come along over the weekend. If you have binoculars, bring them and you might see some arrows hit a target face (the longest distance over the weekend is 90m) .

I’ll post on the WhatsApp group when the shoot is finishing on Sunday so you can come along and help!

One last thing – if anyone is shooting at our field over the weekend and have keys, please post on the WhatsApp group so that if any of our new members shooting club bows can come along.

As always

Shoot straight.


Reminder – Postal shoot tomorrow 1pm for 1.30pm

Hi allTomorrow is a Postal shoot.
The field is open to all Clophill members whether you are shooting the round or not.
The clubhouse will be open and club bows avaiable.

The Postal round is a short metric:

6 Dozen arrows
3 Dozen at 50m
3 Dozen at 30m
Shot in ends of 6
80cm target face

There are shorter rounds available eg 30m/20m

If you don’t want to shoot that round, try for a 252 badge or just come up to the field and shoot a few.

I’m not around for tomorrow but hope that many of you are and that you …..

Shoot straight.
