At the committee meeting of 15 October 2009 we agreed to 'adopt' some Fletchlings as club mascots. Details of each fletchling will be added to this page (with parental permission) as they are adopted.

The idea for club mascots came about because we have a few children who are too young to shoot but who are very keen to be involved. We wish to keep them interested and at the same time feel that this will help make the club more family orientated.

Open to any club member's children between the age of four and nine, or the point they become club members or the parent leaves the club, whichever is sooner, and who show an interest in archery. The rational for those ages is that at four they are (just about) old enough to take an interest in their own right, as opposed to their parents wishing it on them, and at eight they can become club members. However, if they turn eight in mid-winter using nine as the cut off would allow them to be trained the following spring and then join without there being a gap in contact with the club.

Any member who wishes to nominate a fletchling should pass the name of the child to any committee member. A decision will then be made at the next committee meeting.

Each fletchling will be:

  1. Given an A4 certificate printed on card.
  2. Given both clubs' iron on patches (for safety reasons they will not be given the pin badges).
  3. Invited to be photographed holding the two 'mascots' that were kindly knitted for us by Steve Ludwell's mum. With parental permission these photographs will be added to this section.
  4. Formally invited to the after shoot festivities for all club competitions and special bank holiday shoots. With parental permission they will be included in the group shots and each given a 'bag of sweets' in the awards presentation.

  • Haydn Bath – adopted as a fletchling on 17 May 2010, but due to Frank's shifts we didn't get around to presenting him with his certificate and taking his photo until Easter 2011 (see below).
