We are excited to bring you a new series of regular Club events with a House Games style which we are trialling on the next Club Day, Saturday the 25th of May.
You can expect lions, wolves and dragons plus the odd duel or two to decide who will be victorious. The aim is to create a fun shoot like no other to test your skill, cunning and allegiance to your House, but first you must pass the test and face Smoki - our very own 'sorting hat'.
We look to the skies and ask the ancient mystics to bring us good weather to smoke a sausage or two and to keep the insects from our vegetarian option.
Prey join us everyone by clicking to attend using the wizardry of the Event Calendar.
The 24th November saw a band of brave-hearted archers turn up for a new friendly CMO team competition, with the aim to bring members together to shoot in teams and have a bit of fun.
In all, twenty took part for the fun and hot soup, which was sorely needed as there was a cold biting wind - fitting that we shot a Frostbite round then! With some late-comers who had to miss out on shooting, it does mean that some are not checking the website to see what’s going on at the club, so we would urge you to do that.
Part of the fun was the lottery of the team selection with Andre the bingo caller. There were four teams of five with the compound archers as the captains. Team Martin ended the day as winners of the first competition, despite heavy heckling from all sides, even his own.
You can check out some pictures in the Gallery section of the site.
This is going to be a regular social event, hopefully once a month throughout the year so keep your eyes on the web calendar and sign up.
Well done to so many of you for attending our Halloween Fun Shoot this year. Despite the bitter wind making the day colder than the end of a witches nose, around forty of us turned up to shoot ten ends and then into the warm for some hearty soup and stew.
Around half came in fancy dress with some very impressive efforts again this year, with prizes awarded to Bridie's scary clown, Steve's,erm, hunchbacked-skull-thing, and Jenny and Simon making the scariest couple.
Huge thanks to Andre and Rene for organising, all those who made cakes and food, and Brian for taking some great pics which are in the Gallery now.
