Atkins Soup ShootBy Steve Harris

nov2It was that time of year again and Robbie the snowbot made an appearance for our Christmas shoot, looking the worse for ware, as was the one antler reindeer. 

We had 20 archers turn out in Xmas attire for the shoot, although sadly a few couldn’t make it on the day. The ones not showing some sort of seasonal jollity assured me they were wearing Christmas undercrackers.

nov2Here everybody is waiting on the starting line for Phil’s whistle to get underway and shoot the festive themed targets. Fortunately, there was a break in the wind and the rain. Although there were bows of all shapes and sizes, not enough in one category to challenge Martin who shot the highest score with his interstellar laser guided compound bow. Andy gave him a run for his money with his barebow.

 Dec 5

After there was hot soup and mulled wine, mince pies and cream along with a variety of nibbles. The soup made by Phil and me, (no my wife Julia has the credit for that) and other tasty treats brought in by Gaynor and Gordon. Martin walked off with the medal for the compound and a bottle of wine for best Christmas outfit with his Jaws jumper, however, Barry had a musical hat that the judge, Nigel missed. I think his batteries had run out by then

Gordon took quite a few photos which will no doubt be put in the picture gallery of the club’s website.

This shoot was well attended but throughout early December attendance has been very low, so don’t forget in January walk off those extra Christmas pounds and get shooting.
