Training Courses for 2024 Now Live

Atkins Soup ShootBy Steve Harris

Near the start of the month the first team Game of Arrows (GOA) was held, on the hottest day of the year so far. It was a very slow take up with only 3 members signed up just 6 days before the event, however, with just a day to go it jumped to 18, and a few hours before it went to 21. It was great to see family members there too, hopefully with a few younger archers waiting in the wings. 

 

Martin tamed the dragon into putting us in teams before the fun and games started, and it was hotly contested competition with team Leander leading for much of the early running, before Dracar took over, but from nowhere Wolfgar hit the front just at the right time, (when I was looking after the BBQ). It was also said we had an extra archer!

Thanks to all members for helping to set up and take down all the equipment, and Meaning and Sharon for helping with the sausages and burger flipping. I hope none went away hungry or un-watered at the end of the enjoyable day. Members can up-load photos to the CMO web page directly, so not just on the phone chat.

We will need someone to step up to the plate to organise the BBQ for the next GOA event on 13th July, and it will be of great help to know the numbers a few days before buying the food. The club do reimburse you for the food very quickly.

 

The evening social event on 22nd June is approaching very fast, and again this is for all the family and partner to enjoy, but it is one where we need to know numbers for the food. There is a £14 fee for adults, £7 for juniors and free for young children. ‘They don’t usually eat that much’. There will be veggie options available. You can pay on the CMO web site or to a committee member, but it does need to be by 7th June as the caterers need time to organise what food we require.

 A few awards will be handed out, so look out for your chance to vote for someone on the website, Martin will let you know the criteria.  A raffle will be held so bring some change, and music if you feel like a dance,so put on those dancing shoes. It is at the Flying Club in Wallington next to the Ginger Frog café 6.45 – 7 pm. It has both indoor and outdoor space so rain will not spoil the night. It is the first social event since 2019, five years ago, so let’s make it a great night. There are good bus and rail links to the venue.
