Weather watch, news of what is on/off and a busy weekend to come!


The late call off, due to bad weather, for the Shurdington session on the 22nd turned out to be a good call, sorry for any inconvenience caused. The van had arrived at Shurdington in heavy snow and the weather warning of significant snow forced a late decision.

We are afraid that we have had to cancel the Kingshill (23rd) & Hatherley & Reddings (24th) practice sessions, however;

Another busy weekend for the club, fingers crossed that the weather is kinder to us!

Old Equipment Appeal

We are about to launch an appeal to past and current members to check out what equipment they no longer use (arrows, bow stands, bows, limbs etc) and to either donate it to the club or sell us it at a preferential price. It will either be used to help at practice sessions or to help members that would benefit from a loaning.
