Beds County Archery Rep – we need one!

Hi allSuzi has put in some sterling work for longer than I remember representing Clophill at the County meetings and being the main point of contact between County and us. For this the club is eternally grateful!

She has stepped down from the role and we are looking for someone to step into her shoes. You don’t need to be a member of our committee, but it might help as you would need to report back anything of interest.

If you think you would like to step up and help out the club please let me know and if you would like any further information about what is involved please have a chat with Suzi.

The club cannot function without the help from its membership, if you would like to do more please speak to one of the committee or reply to this email.

Thanks all

John

Club shoot on Saturday 16 Feb – WA25

Hi allIt’s another club shoot on Saturday, we’re shooting a WA25.

This is a little different as we will be shooting 25m rather than the normal 20 yards.

The round is:

– 60 arrows
– shot in ends of 3 arrows
– 60 cm target (same as the Portsmouth face)
– 25 metres

So that we are all prepared to shoot perfect arrows (ha ha!) we will be getting sight marks on Wednesday evening, so when you set up please do so towards the back of the hall so we can shoot 25m.

As always the shoot will count towards the club Grand Prix and indoor Classifications
