May is always a busy month for us. Right at the start of the month there was the Have a go weekend, the following weekend it was the first leg of the Notts League, a relaxed and informal shoot, where we had 20 members shooting. We weren’t quite the largest club, but we made our presence known with some good scores and a couple of six gold ends. This puts us in a good position for the second leg at Sherwood Archers on 11th June.
Last weekend we held the first of the postal summer league shoots in wonderful weather with 28 archers shooting accompanied by the customary fuddle.
This weekend we are hosting our annual World Record Status competition at Nottingham Hockey Club at Highfields, which will mean an early start for the work party and a long day for those competing as well. Its a key event in the local calendar, as well as being one of the selection shoots for the County Team. We normally run a very good shoot and this year should be no exception. At the moment the weather forecast looks to be favourable. Lets hope it stays that way.
And then to round off the month, there’s a Have a Go on Saturday 27th and another selection shoot and match against Leics on 28th, which a good number of members will be participating in.
