There is no other way of saying this but our Ontarget Team drawn away to Burnham Company of Archers in the Semi-final in this national competition did us proud when recording a 13-8 victory in very challenging conditions!
Our congratulations and thanks go to Captain Simon Faulkner and Millie Williams who stood in with less than 24 hours notice and very little practice over the last 3 months to represent the compounds. To Ed Humphrey and John Dalton shooting Barebow in the recurve category!
Well done guys!
Rest of bank holiday weekend
Friday evening was junior only, very soggy conditions so all the shooting was from the covered shooting area. Despite the gusty conditions some more 252 badges were achieved!
Saturday morning/afternoon saw another excellent attendance for field course practice, lots of visitors including a large contingent from Pentref who we thank for their support.
The afternoon saw another well attended Open Community shoot, again thanks to all the coaches that have supported this throughout the summer. The programme will recommence for the winter season once our clubhouse is completed in October.
Well attended Saturday evening practice session, unfortunately Sunday was a wash out!
Bank Holiday Monday saw a refresher session being run for those about to join the club on October 1st and in the afternoon a full selection of National Rounds (16 bosses) in an open club target day. This is part of our support to get new archers to competition shooting and we are pleased to say a number of Gloucestershire Clubs took the opportunity!
European Senior Championships
Good luck to Lucy and Sarah who are in Poland all week competing in the European Senior Championships.
