Could the committee remind all members that insurance when shooting at the club or at official NFAS shoots is only provided by being a member of the NFAS.

As stated on the clubs membership application form, it is a requirement for all members to take out membership of the NFAS which will provide insurance cover for members as detailed on the NFAS website. A copy of the NFAS Insurance details is also pinned on the club noticeboard for those who prefer to read a hard copy. Please do not remove this.

It is up to individual members to arrange their NFAS membership – the club do not do this on your behalf so please make sure you are a fully paid up member of the NFAS. 

Well what a difference 6 months make! At our last shoot back in October we were considering sending out rescue boats given how much it rained – Our first shoot of 2019 brought much nicer weather. Although there was a chill in the air, we had mainly blue skies for most of the day.

172 archers descended upon our woods – thank you all for coming. It was great to see you all and have such a good turnout. Judging by the feedback we received, you all had a great day.

The course was set by Ivor, Robin, Nigel, Bernie, Dean and Darren and consisted of mainly 3D’s with some paper faces – and faces that had never been seen before. We hope you all enjoyed shooting these new faces – there are more to come! The large standing bear was certainly a topic of conversation… The course itself was quite challenging but fair with something for everyone including some cracking longer shots and the snake pit! (Thanks to Nigel and Bernie – did anyone get a 24 on the rattle snake?!) From what everyone was saying when they came off the course at the end of the day – we think you all enjoyed it.

The ladies in kitchen lived up to their usual high standards and once again proved why SVYF are renowned for our catering. The spread they laid on for everybody was fantastic – thank you ladies (and Jason and Roy on the griddle!)

Thank you to the course layers and members who helped in the lead up to the shoot – but above all, thank you again to all the archers who came.

We have some new 3D’s on order and working on some more paper faces so be sure to visit us again on 20th October  – but please book early to avoid disappointment! Bookings now being taken – click HERE to book.

Wow – what a day….. It rained! And rained. And rained some more! We were trying to work out the last time we had the wet stuff at a S.V.Y.F open shoot and we couldn’t actually remember so it must have been a long time ago!

Thank you to all the brave soles who came, big thank you and high five to those that actually finished! The ironic thing is the rain did eventually stop – when archers had about 4 targets to go… And everyone left in sunshine!!!!

36 targets, mainly all 3d’s, were shot. A challenging but fair course was set which everyone enjoyed shooting. 140 archers were pre-booked, 126 turned up, just under 100 completed the course. The score cards were interesting! Trying to keep these dry in that weather was a massive task alone!

The ladies in the kitchen excelled themselves again (thanks Ladies – and Jason!) with a restaurant quality menu that went down well. The cake was pretty good too!

Not many pictures were taken due to the weather!

Thanks again to all those that came – while we can’t promise better weather next time, we will do our best!

See you in April next year.
