Dear club members, associates and friends,
Just to remind you that our next beginners course starts this Thursday (5th July) and runs for four consecutive Thursday’s. The first course will commence at 6.30pm and conclude around 9.00pm; the three subsequent weeks will run from 7.00 until 9.00pm. Members are still welcome to shoot whilst the course is being run but, as is normal custom and practice, the beginners course takes priority and governs the pace at which we shoot.
We have a full compliment of 20 people signed up for the course so we will require some assistance from the more experienced club members. I believe all of the people that have signed up (or certainly most of them) joined on the back of the archery ‘Big Weekend’ event, so they have had a taster and are raring to go! Anyone who has helped out with beginners courses in the past know that these are great fun and we get to meet some lovely people – the good ones join the club So please help out and support the club.
Next week, as well as running week 2 of the beginners course, we will be hosting a have-a-go event for the Gnosall Cubs The event has been scheduled for Tuesday 10th July, from 7.00 until 8.30pm. We are expecting around 25 cubs to attend and there will be a mixture of boys and girls. Again we are looking to members for some help with this event. The cubs will be shooting the ‘Snake’ bows and will be instructed in a barebow style, so no special skills needed here to oversee and corral the youngsters. Again members are more than willing to shoot during this session but as the cubs are paying the club for the have-a-go they will dictate the pace of shooting.
And finally, if you are not yet aware the Architectural Heritage shoot at Cleobury, which was scheduled for Sunday 8th July, has been cancelled due to issues with the school where they normally hold the event.
Thank you in advance for those that are able to help at these upcoming events.
