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!!
