BREAKING NEWS1

CHANGE TO SATURDAY SESSION START TIME

As from Saturday 10th Feb. 2024, our Saturday morning shoot times will change from 10.00 am to 10.30 am to relieve pressure on car parking with the Park Run finishing as we are setting the range up. The session will continue to last for two hours, including a break for drinks.

TASTER SESSION


We are pleased to announce that (weather permitting) we will be holding a Taster Session for anyone (over the age of 9) to find out what archery is about.
The Session will be held on Saturday 18th May, at our range on the Strode College Sports Field in Street and participants will meet at 10.15 am at the Field. Equipment and tuition will be provided, so come along and find out what shooting arrows is all about!





On Tuesday 9th. January Robin Hood's spirit entered the Shoot as Malcolm ruined two arrows with his accuracy on the compound bow!

A Club First?

On Saturday 18th March Stan shot (with his first six arrows on the day!) a perfect score of 60! We believe this to be the first perfect golden end for the Club, unless anyone knows any diferent?
Anyway, heartiest congratulations to Stan. Our current version of Haarland probably needs to watch out!
He responded last night (Tuesday 21st March) by scoring yet another golden end, and with 58 points only just missed out on equalling Stan's effort! Picture below.

Stan's Perfect 60!

Two of our archers have recently acquired compound bows and Len obviously has got the hang of changing from recurve bow as his Golden End achieved on Saturday 1st July testifies!

Today (29th July) Malcolm caught Len up shooting his first Golden End with his compound bow!
