NFAS 3Ds Championships

Many congratulations to the Fleet Ibex members who won trophies at the NFAS 3Ds Championships held at Flete Estate near Plymouth in Devon on 26th and 27th May 2018.

Ian Christie won the Bowhunter Class and Lara Evans won the Under 16 Girls Bowhunter Class.

Well done to both of you

1st March 2018 - AGM and first Open Shoot of the year

Thanks to those of you who attended the AGM on 25th February. Unfortunately, as usual, the turnout was disappointing but we take heart in the logic that if only a few people turn up then most people must be reasonably happy with the way the club is being run.

A reminder that the first open shoot of the year is planned for Sunday 1st April 2018. This means that the club practice courses will be closed over that weekend.

For those of you wanting to shoot in the competition, you need to register and pay in advance. The entry form can be downloaded from the "Downloads and Links" page of this web site. Entry is open to all full NFAS members.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT WITH EFFECT FROM 1ST APRIL 2018 (THE DAY OF THE SHOOT) YOU WILL NEED TO PRESENT A CURRENT (2018-2019) NFAS MEMBERSHIP CARD BEFORE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO COMPETE. THIS IS AN INSURANCE REQUIREMENT AND THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.

AGM and Membership Renewals

The AGM will be held at the club on Sunday 25th February 2018 starting at 10:00hrs. All members will be welcome and tea and coffee making facilities will be available.

Current memberships will expire on 31st March 2018 on which date the combination lock number will be changed. From that date, only full members for 2018- 2019 and their guests (signed in and accompanied whilst on the grounds) will be allowed at the club. Membership renewals are being accepted now. The membership application form has been emailed to all members who have an email address and by post for all others. Alternatively, it can be downloaded from the downloads page of this web site. All renewals should be accompanied by the application form (by email or by post) with payment as instructed on page 2 of the form. Please note that for insurance to be valid when you visit the club grounds, you must be a current member of the club or a guest in accordance with our club rules.

Charity Shoot 7th January 2018

We were blessed with good (but rather cold) weather for this event and were delighted with a great turnout of members and guests.

20 3-D targets were set out along the access track - a set up which encouraged social interaction during the shoot. All were agreed it was a fun way to start the year and a gentle introduction to the more competitive shoots later in the year.

The best news is that our efforts raised a total of £396 for our chosen charity this year - Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Many thanks for all those who turned up and those who worked so hard setting up the course to make the day such a success.

Charity Shoot 7/1/18 - Update

I bit of an update on arrangements for the charity shoot.

Apparently, my previous post was misleading with regards payments.

The shoot is open to all. For members of Fleet Ibex there is no charge although any contributions to charity would be appreciated. 

For non-members, there will be a £3.00 charge per person or £5.00 per couple. All proceeds will be donated to charity.

Coming up - Charity Friendly Shoot planned for 7th January 2018

After the success of last year's event we are planning another charity friendly shoot at the club on Sunday 7th January 2018.

We will have around 20 3-D targets set out for you to shoot as and when you like.

There is no particular start time (any time from about 09:00hrs), there is no need to book and there is no shoot fee to pay. However, a contribution to charity would be appreciated.

The event is open to members and non-members so there's no excuse for not turning up and joining in.

Tea and coffee making facilities will be available but you are advised to bring your own food.

After the excesses of the festive season, why not get back into the swing of fresh air and exercise by shooting around the courses?
