Tournament – WA900 7&8 July

Hi all

The club are running a tournament on 7 & 8 July.
It is an "open" tournament and we have archers joining us from the County and beyond.

The tournament is a WA900:

2.5 dozen @ 60m
2.5 dozen @ 50m
2.5 dozen @ 40m

All shot at the large 122cm face.

If you haven’t shot a tournament before and can shoot 60m why not give it a try? It’s at our field and they’ll be plenty of friendly faces around.

The cost is £10 per session, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.

The entry form can be found here
https://clophillac.co.uk/events/tournaments/
There may even be an entry form in the Club House!

If you’re unsure, please ask one of the committee and we’ll provide more information.

For the experienced archers, please come and shoot and make it a good turnout from Clophill – medals will be awarded and there may even be the odd County Record up for grabs as it is a seldom shot round.

Classifications

The round shot can count towards your outdoor classification of:

– Bowman

– 1st Class

– 2nd Class

– 3rd Class

To get a classification, and a shiny badge, you’ll need three qualifying scores over the outdoor season.

The Club house will be open

If you don’t fancy the round but want to shoot, that’s fine.

If you shoot a club bow, they will be available.

All we ask is that you fit in with the scoring round that is being shot.

Hope to see you on Saturday

I won’t see you on Saturday, I’m away for a week.

For those that can make it, shoot straight!

John

2nd Development Session 9 May

Dear all. We hope you all enjoyed yourself at the first session last week. From our point of view it went very well with everybody apparently enjoying themselves, to the point where we were losing the light by the time we called an end to the procedings.
We hope you will all be back with us tomorrow, with probably an extra couple joining in the fun.
A reminder of what it is all about:
For the new archers that have joined following the beginners course, it is a further introduction to the sport with sessions on:

  • putting together and taking down your bow
  • practical matters that will set you up for continuing with the sport
  • work on technique
  • how to maintain your equipment. The last session will have a tutorial on how to fletch arrows.

We have found the sessions have been well received in the past and a great continuation following your successful beginners course.
If some of you that were new last year and feel like you need a refresher, come along and get comfortable with shooting again. In particular the last session where you can learn how to re-fletch arrows.
For the seasoned archers among you – please come along to say hello and help your new colleagues.
The session starts at 6pm tomorrow (9 May) and continue on the 16th May. Culminating in a fun shoot with BBQ on Saturday 19 May.
