Club First! – Clout, field and target success on same weekend!

Despite less than great weather, Thursday (adults) and Friday (juniors) saw us run well attended Clout training sessions.
Saturday saw 27 Archers attend the first of our field archery warm up days, with clubs as far afield as Pentref and Cleve Archers attending!

Just as that was completing we had 10 bosses in full swing with a dozen of our coaches running our increasingly popular community have-a-go session. . This was followed by a rather wet club practice session.

 

Volunteer team, hard work, constant drizzle but good fun.

That theme continued on Sunday with a volunteer group running a have -a-go session at the Tetbury Show.

Clubhouse and funding update

We have been required to submit a further planning application to reflect some of the design changes but are still hopeful that the project can be completed in October. Fund raising is continuing to go well and the licensed Grand Raffle has attracted great support from local businesses and supporters and will be launched shortly. We have some amazing prizes which will all be listed on our website.
