SVYF Open Shoot – 24th October 2021
It was an absolute pleasure to welcome 125 archers back to our woodland for the first time in two years due to Covid. It was a typical October day, a little chilly and cloudy but we were very lucky with the bulk of the raining staying away having just a couple of very light showers.
Chairman Martin Cane started proceedings at 10.30 with his usual wit and good humour – think we’ve all missed that over the last two years, before all the archers were lead out onto the course in preparation for the days shooting.
The course consisted of 36 targets – mainly 3D’s with some faces thrown in. And faces that hadn’t been seen before. These appeared to go down very well with lots of positive comments.
A massive thank you to everyone who came. It was great to see you all and to be hosting an open shoot again. Judging by all your comments on social media, you all had a great day.
Everyone was very well looked after by the ladies (and Mark!) in the kitchen who offered the usual great range of breakfast sandwiches, burgers, hotpots and cake! SVYF are renowned for our catering and a break in hosting open shoots certainly didn’t effect the first class offering. We don’t think anyone left hungry! Thank you to all the members who donated cake – there was a lot!! But it all went by the end of the day…. Archers really do love cake! Respect to the gentleman who had cake for breakfast! 😀🧁
Thank you to our course layers who set up a challenging but fair course – hopefully you will all agree, it was a great course with something for everyone. Thank you to all the members who gave up their time to assist the course layers in setting up the course in the weeks leading unto the shoot – all your help is appreciated.
