Atkins Soup ShootBy Steve Harris


On the evening of the 22nd June we held the first social event since 2019 at the Flying Club in Wallington. It was great to see members old and new coming together for the evening, enjoying the food, drink, and company of fellow archers (without their quivers) and partners. 

The pool table came in for heavy use to settle a few scores for those who had good use of the cue stick, “Very similar to my long bow”, as demonstrated by Kieron.

There were about 30 odd people there, who, after food was devoured purchased tickets for the raffle.Hopefully all groups managed to win a prize! Gordon at the 2019 event won about 5 prizes and hit a lucky streak again winning 4 times, although he declined on three occasions to pick a prize.

There were about 25 prizes, almost as many as those in attendance, with the water pistol going to Steve O’s son, as they left early as it was way past his bedtime, and as if by magic his number was the first pulled out of the bucket.June02

Inside, Winston looked over the whole proceedings with a wry smile, but there was space outside too, where most sat during the sunny early evening. This really made a change from the dire weather we have had up to now and bodes well for the next game of arrows coming up in July. 

New members Agata and Bhret were late comers, but I believe enjoyed the evening immensely and were probably the last to leave at 1am with Tesfa and Sharon.

Thanks for those that came and took photos, I forgot my phone in the dash to get set up, but if you have taken any and want to up-load them on the CMO website, please do. As for those that couldn’t attend you missed out on a good night.

June03Not quite sure what was happening here, but it could be something to do with the Purple Princes and Dracula. You may have to look that one up!

The exceptional weather is not going to last so make sure you get up to the field when able, and try out some of the rounds Phil has put down for us all. Or, if you’d rather, just practice and have fun.
