St Neots Bowmen will be holding our last Beginner’s Course for 2022 on Saturday 17th September.
Our one-day courses run between 09:30 – 17:00 at our outdoor range in Offord D’Arcy. See here for the location of the field.
Attendance is £60 per person and upon completion of the course, you’ll gain a certificate enabling you to join St Neots Bowmen or any other AGB registered club.
Couples, families (children 8 years and up) and small groups are welcome.
The club champs have been reorganised for 21st August 2022. We’ll be shooting a Windsor and at lunchtime we’ll be holding a social on the field with some food.
So even if you can’t make the champs, we hope you’ll join us for a bite to eat.
With the weather being so hot, and the Government advice to avoid fires, rather than firing up BBQ, we’ll be setting up a picnic – please feel free to bring your signature dish!
The club champs will kick off at the usual Sunday shoot start time, and if you’d like to join us for lunch, aim to arrive from noon.
See you there!
We are organising the last beginners course of the 2022 outdoor season on Saturday September 17th. This is a one-day course (9:30 – 16:30) in which you are tought archery basics that allow you to join an archery club and shoot alongside others. For more information visit our try-archery page.
This Sunday we’d like to take the opportunity to welcome everyone to a social event after the club shoot at the outdoor range.
We’ll start at noon, directly after the club shoot and we’ll do a BBQ and provide some drinks. Don’t worry – attending the club shoot is not mandatory, so feel free just to pop down to the field for an afternoon catch up with like minded individuals.
If you’d like to join us, please confirm by clicking ‘Going’ to the Facebook invite. And if you have any dietary requirements, please DM me (Stacey) and I’ll make sure you’re also catered for!
We’ll also be taking this opportunity to hand out club awards for the indoor season. I’m really looking forward to seeing you there!
On Saturday May 21st the oldest archery tournament in the world – first held in 1673- will hold its 313th meeting. The “antient Scorton silver arrow” sees competitors (gentlemen aged 21 or over) compete for the silver arrow – plus the honour/duty of organising next year’s edition. The tournament is always held in Yorkshire, and this year the venue of choice is at Harrogate RUFC.
Shooting is done two-ways, shooting two-arrow ends over a distance of about 105 yards (100 yards between the shooting lines). No compounds allowed, most archers shoot longbows but recurves (with or without sight) are also permitted.
There is no set number of arrows. After the bugle is sounded to start the shoot at 10:30 there is two hours of shooting, followed by a leisurely three-course meal. Then another two hours of shooting followed by afternoon tea.
I’ve participated three times so this year will be my fourth. Ask me for details if you’re interested, or have a look at www.scortonarrow.com.
The club will be once again taking part in the OnTarget competition, this is a competition shot @50m
comprising mixed age categories, gender and bow styles. Sunil is going to register teams with
Archery GB so if your interested let him know, firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday 21st August the field will be closed for a field working party, helpers will be needed to help
uncover the field markers and put up the new permanent fixed distance bosses. If you can help
please let Marc Bax know via email email@example.com
