A chilly but sunny morning welcomed the 151 archers who took the time to travel to our woodland to shoot our course of 36 targets consisting of 34 x 3d’s and 2 x paper faces. We had our new 3d’s out which we hope you enjoyed shooting and one of our own paper faces. The feedback on these faces is fantastic so there will certainly be more in the future – watch this space!

There was a little bit of drizzle in the air for the raffle and prize giving but everyone managed to get home in the dry – which is more that what we can say about our October shoot last year! The woodland was slightly damp underfoot with care having to be taken on the bridges but it was nice for everyone to stay dry!

A massive thank you to everyone who came. It was great to see you all –  Judging by all your comments, you all had a great day.

Everyone was very well looked after by the ladies in kitchen who offered the usual great range of sandwiches, burgers, hotpots and cake! The chicken tikka was particularly good so big thanks to our ladies (and Jason and Roy on the griddle!)

Thank you to our course layers – I think 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 above all, thank you again to all the archers who came and we will hopefully see you all again in 6 months time!

For the keen archers – booking is now open for our next open shoot on 19th April 2020 – click HERE to book.

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.
