Two new galleries are now online - pictures from this year's Richmond Pagoda Shoot kindly submitted by Veronique, and also last year's Halloween Fun Shoot after many requests (mainly from Steve - sorry Steve).
Check them out here:
CMO competed against Thomas Wall Archers for the first stage of the AGB OnTarget Competition today, and came away with a victory. Congratulations to Yulia Larkins and Antony Wood shooting recurve and Andre Labuschagne and Eric Chan shooting compound.
CMO were able to win the individual, pairs and team rounds resulting in a 14 to 7 win over Thomas Wall, who were excellent hosts. We will proceed onto the stage 2 draw, which should be held in June.
Our next course begins on Saturday, June 9th and is filling up fast
ONLY 5 PLACES LEFT FOR THE JUNE COURSE
Please remember - the booking system automatically closes when the course is full and/or 24 hours before the event. This is to allow time for the course administrator to properly compile the register for the course and to allocate equipment appropriately - so book your place now!

On Sunday 15th April, CMO sent a contingent of 20 archers and supporters to the Royal Richmond Pagoda Shoot 2018, held next to Kew Gardens in the shadow of the great tower.
This event is normally well-attended by CMO but this year was the first trial of a group event booking and the turnout was even higher. Our archers represented the club across all disciplines, shooting Albion and Windsor rounds but nobody was quite prepared for the medals haul that was to follow.
Archery GB have just announced the details of their much-talked-about new scheme to work out the National rankings for archers involved in tournaments and competitions. Here's the statement reproduced from the AGB website, with a link to the official document below.
"Having received a considerable number of very constructive and informed comments regarding our original document, we are now in a position to publish the revised 2018 National Rankings.
In the last few weeks, some of our archers have been competing at high level around the country and abroad.
In November, Antony went to Marrakech and competed at Stage One of the World Archery Indoor Championships. Antony qualified in 9th place with a fantastic score of 565 in his Fita 18 round and went on to win his first round head to head match to progress to round 2, where he fought a close match with Florian Bossard of France, who won the match 6-2.
Hopefully members, you should have received an email from Archery GB with information to allow you to download your new membership card ahead of receiving the physical incarnation.
You are now able to save your new card onto your mobile device using Apple Wallet or whatever Android uses for that sort of thing.
If you haven't yet had this email from either AGB or forwarded from Martin or Paul, please let us know via an email.
Now that building works have been completed and the new nusery schools have been officially opened, parking at the ground at weekends has been reinstated.
However there is to be no parking during the week for CMO members, nor parents of the school. Disabled members may park their cars at the ground by contacting the Club Secretary who will arrange this with the school.
There is also to be no driving cars onto the grass areas. Please park next to the tennis courts with no exceptions.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
The rates for membership to CMO have been set and the new membership plans are live.
New for this year is a Full Associate plan that allows members of other clubs to join and make full use of the benefits of being at CMO, instead of just coming to shoot.
We have added some great new items of clothing to enhance your shooting experience, plus a couple of holdalls to put it all in!
You can now wear your CMO base layer, club shirt, soft-shell jacket or gilet, padded gilet, hoodie and rain jacket and be totally weatherproof on the shooting line. Although wearing all that at once might be impractical and just showing off.
