During 2020/2021, COVID greatly reduced what members can and want to to do socially but 2022 has seen us return to our social events that make the club so much more than just an archery venue.
We have a had a Junior Only Fish & Chip social.
Our annual lasertag tournament
Our first petanque championships
Our annual awards evening
December – Junior Christmas Party
The core of our social programme remains our practice sessions, club target days, workshops, committee meetings, something on every day, so plenty of regular contact! Various Facebook groups, informal social outings, fundraising events and a willingness to share each others successes mean we spend a lot of time together.
However some highlights of more formally arranged activities.
Group trips to tournaments, including Ontarget, Nimes & Las Vegas.
We had a great time at our lazer tag evenings.
We have held successful Racing evenings at the Hucclecote Centre, lots of laughs, great for fundraising too!
Other events included:
- Easter Fun Shoot and Egg hunt.
- Junior Fish & Chips Evening.
- Club Camping Weekend.
- Boule Tournament.
- Team Building Activities
We held a number of social fun shoots, a couple of members special parties and an official opening event for the new clubhouse and social terracing.
We support each other when we have been nominated for awards ensuring there is always Deer Park Archers representation.
It’s interesting that when formal social events are listed they do not seem that many and yet the sheer enjoyment and friendship at our practice sessions makes everything feel so regular!
