The dates for the following competitions are all 'weather permitting'. Rounds to be shot will be Nationals for all experienced adults with shorter distances for juniors and beginner adults, followed by a BBQ and the presentation of awards. Lady/Santa Paramounts to be confirmed - anyone fancy wearing either of the pointy hats?

Friday 14 December. Will Santa Paramount, aka Tournament organiser, Bob Taylor, once again make an appearance to award the prizes?

Sunday in October, the exact date cannot be announced yet as, in addition to the weather, we need to work around the minis' (under 8s, not the cars) rugby festival and that isn't announced until the summer.

So that all members could have a chance to take part, we shot our shorter distances, rather than those set by Archery GB, please see the Clout section of the local rounds and local rules page.

Sunday 6 May; featuring the Andy Friend and Bob Taylor Challenge Trophies for the highest handicap adjusted scores at 60 yards and 50 yards respectively, the cup for the highest non-handicap adjusted score of the day and the 'compound gold' trophy. If more than one person is shooting compound bows, this will be awarded as the best gold between those shooting. If there is only one or no compound shooters it will be awarded to the first person who has an arrow within the compound 10 zone. As we've had no New Year's Day shooting for a few years we also decided to use the two best gold cups.

Friday 6 April. 7pm meet. Yes we are shooting after dark. Please note: this date is very provisional as we rely on a member of rugby club, usually our liaison, Jim Brooks, to turn off the floodlights after we have finished shooting and he is unable to confirm availability at this time. The cost for the electricity, usually 10, is split between the adult members shooting.

Shooting under floodlight can cause your depth perception to go and the prizes reflect this. They vary from year to year but include such things as worst white, lowest total score and most petticoats (in the paper target, but outside the scoring area) and a Woodpecker trophy (for the first one of the night, excluding sighters).
