By order of the Committee
All members of Deer Park Archers have already been sent details of the EGM together with the following documents:
A detailed Project Plan culminating in the purchase of the land has been established and is on track with the target of completing on the 28th August 2014.
Provisional results from Wilson Associates – Consulting Engineering Geologists & Geo-Environmental Engineers, which were commissioned by Deer Park Archers Limited, ‘show no significant values’, which is great news and a full report will be available early next week.
These are exciting times and are certainly consuming a lot of time from all our willing volunteers and the potential for taking our eye off our general club matters, our community work and the development of our archers is great but as you will see from the following there is still a lot going on!
Daily work in schools through the Activities weeks supported by our volunteers and a demand further stimulated by the successful school games, with events happening morning, afternoon and evenings, every day of the week across the County!
This weekend we are supporting a Special School in Tewkesbury on the Saturday and a ‘Go Wild’ event organized by Gloucester Borough Council on the Sunday.
Recreation Centre Activity
Excellent Generation Games at Stroud Leisure Centre last Sunday supported by many volunteers that saw more than 100 participants introduced to our sport from 5 to 70.
The ‘pay as you go’ and Beginners/Improvers courses are continuing to expand at GL1 and we should thank all of the coaches supporting this weekly challenge!
Great attendance levels across all the evening sessions, not so busy at the Monday/Wednesday morning sessions although this will pick up with the school holidays and many juniors have now finished their exams and school/university. We share the ground with a group of fox cubs that seem to accept us and carry on as if we are not there!
The content, volunteer support and structure are all there, we just need to find a time that works for parents, so we are going to try different times. One plan when we go indoors is to hold it at Balcarras and offer the parents the chance to shoot at the same time.
British Junior Championships – July
We have the lowest number of entries for a number of years with just 14 entered. James, Lucy & Tom are all competing in Russia for GB, many of our juniors have been fully absorbed by exams and have not been able to practice sufficiently. So this will be a quiet year, however we are sure that those that are there will have a great day!
