Club shoot tomorrow & info

Dear all

We’re shooting a Worcester Round tomorrow at the hall then that’s it until the New Year.
Get there for about 2.15pm or soon after so we can start shooting at 2.30pm.

It’s the start of the new Grand Prix season, let’s make a concerted effort to get the trophy out of Dave’s hands!

What’s a Worcester round I hear you cry……….

Its shot on one of these faces, or a fancy 5 spot one if you only want the 5 & 4 ring. The white bit scores 5, then 4, 3, 2, & 1.

We shoot 60 arrows in ends of 5 arrows.

Its the same distance as a Portsmouth Round (20 yards).

There are Grand Prix points available and it will also count towards your indoor classification. Scores required for classifications are:

Gent Senior and Junior Recurve

A B C D E F G H
298 293 273 237 184 114 61 41

There is county coaching and development session on Saturday so bosses will be set-up and we’ll just need to Face-Up.
We will be starting the round at 2.30pm prompt so please be ready to shoot, with your kit set-up and name on a scoreboard at 2.30pm.

If you would rather work on your form or just come along for a Saturday afternoon ping please do so. Just fit in with the shooting line.

I know those little faces can look a bit daunting but give it a go. If you haven’t shot one before it will be a personal best!

See you on Saturday.

Shoot straight.

Wednesday 13 November – session cancelled

REMINDER – No Session on Wednesday 13 November

Dear all

We have had a message from the Alameda Middle School that administers the hall:

I’m afraid that I have to ask you to cancel your session on Wednesday 13th November, as the school needs the sports hall for an open evening event. This event will run from 6pm onwards, until 8.30 or 9pm. The date has been moved for reasons outside my control. Please accept my apologies for the short notice, and for the inconvenience to your members.

All other sessions will run as normal.

Postal shoot tomorrow (Saturday 2 Nov)

Dear all

You will all be aware from reading Marion’s update email earlier in the week that it is the first of the indoor season’s postal shoots on Saturday 2 November.

The Postal shoots are a Portsmouth round and shooting:

· 60 arrows shot in ends of 3 arrows (30 arrows for the Junior Postal)

· 20 yards

· 60cm target

· 10 zone scoring (unless you shoot a triple spot target)

Please get to the hall promptly (we can normally get in before 2:30pm – usually soon after 2.15pm) so we can get set-up and make a start as close to 2:30pm as we can.

As well as the scores counting towards the Postal league they also contribute towards the club Grand Prix and count towards your indoor classification. As a reminder the classification scores for a Portsmouth are:

GENTLEMEN & JUNIOR BOYS – RECURVE

A B C D E F G H
Portsmouth 592 582 554 505 432 315 195 139

LADIES & JUNIOR GIRLS – RECURVE

Hope to see you on Saturday.
