Charity Shoot

We had a great turnout for the annual charity shoot on Sunday 6th January.

There were probably around 100 archers - members, guests and visitors.

The great news is that we raised a total of £330 which will be donated to Surrey Air Ambulance.

Many thanks to the course setters and, of course, all those who attended.

6th January 2019 - Charity Shoot

A date for your diary - we will be holding our annual charity shoot on Sunday 6th January 2019.

This will be open to all members, their guests and any visitors who fancy an informal day shooting at some of our collection of 3-D targets.

We will set out about 20 targets which will be easily reached from the main access tracks. They will be available from around 09:30 until about 15:00 hrs. Anyone wanting to shoot will need to register (from 09:00). Non members will need to sign in - an insurance requirement. Entry will be free of charge to all members of Fleet Ibex but a minimum donation of £3.00 for an individual or £5.00 for a couple will be expected from visitors and guests. All proceeds will be donated to charity - to be announced on the day.

There will be no medals or prizes but, of course, if you want to score, cards will be available.

There will be coffee and tea making facilities available - free of charge although any further donations to charity will not be refused!

This event is seen as a fun day and a way to meet fellow enthusiasts.

Club Championships 2018

Many thanks to those of you who did turn up to the Club Championships held on 4th November.

It is disappointing and rather demoralising to have such a small turn out for what is, in essence, our only members only event of the year. We have around 200 members so I feel an attendance of about 35 is poor. Even the weather was no excuse this year - it was fine and dry all day.

The small turnout seems to imply that we are doing something wrong so if you’ve got any suggestions please let one of us know about them. What could we do better to improve attendance?

Enough said.

Those who did come seemed to enjoy the day very much. Terry and Graham set a straight “up and down the road” course which made it easy to marshal and encouraged the usual banter and social interaction between archers. Thanks to them for their hard work.

I’ve posted a gallery of photos - mainly of the medalists. Open the “Photo Galleries” page to view. If anyone has any photos they’d like to add, email hem to me and I’ll include them.

The full results can be seen on the “Shoot Results and Reports page. Well done to all medalists.

In particular, well done to Carolyn Neville who won the overall club champion title on a handicap basis. It seems that the ladies have an advantage when we use handicaps so maybe I’ll have to look again at the top secret method of calculating handicaps!!
