AGM and the Outdoor Season

April 22, 2017

AGM Recap

AGM Last night saw the end of the current indoor season and with it our Annual General Meeting.  Here’s a few highlights for those who missed it.

The club has never been stronger with regular attendance helping to support the replacement of most of our indoor targets (you probably remember all those hard to pull arrows!).  We want to extend a big thank you to all of our members who have made our club such a great place to shoot and have fun.

During the meeting all committee nominations were reviewed and we now have a newly elected committee.  You can see the new committee on the committee page. We still have a few open positions, so if you think you would like to help with the running of the club please let us know!

Next the results of the Tavistock Trophy were announced.  The results are as follows:

Gents Barebow – Richard Burridge
Ladies Barebow – Suzie Deagan
Junior Ladies Barebow – Jess Yeoman
Gents Recurve – Simon Bench
Ladies Recurve – Charlotte Irons
Gents Longbow – Bob Dakin
Gents Compound – Marcus Yeoman
Gents Traditional – Pasty Cain
Ladies Traditional – Karen Ingram

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who represented us in the postal league.

To wrap things up we said congratulations to Bob Dakin who received the Handicap improvement medal and to Marcus Yeoman for setting nine club records!

Outdoor Season

From next Tuesday 25th our mid-week shooting will now be outside. For those who don’t know this will be across the road at the All Saints Academy Sports Field.  As before please use the entrance at the top of the grounds and park up then walk down. To make the most of the light we will be starting at 6:30pm, but if you can’t make it until later there’s no problem.

One last point for outdoor shooting.  It’s inevitable that arrows will be lost in the grass during the course of shooting.  They are tricky to find and stick out where you can barely see them.  Owing to this it is very important that shoes which cover the whole foot are worn when shooting to prevent injury.

See you on the field!
