February 2014 Newsletter

Welcome to the Monthly Newsletter and Tournament Diary

Club News

CPO Report 
I just want to remind everyone about the guidelines regarding juniors as we now have seven under 16.  It is necessary to ensure there are at least two adults on site at all times when a junior is shooting. One may be the parent, but if no parent present and only two adults instructing, the session must end if one of them has to leave. Parents leaving juniors at the club must enter a contact telephone number in the diary provided (in addition to the name of everyone attending).
To all Members
Please note that in all controlled shoots the line signals now are one whistle to shoot, THREE whistles to collect arrows,  two whistles (only used on timed events ) move to shooting line (NOT collect )
Club Shoots
Now Indoor season we will be shooting indoors on a Monday evening at Maiden Erlegh School gym. Shooting starts at 7-15pm prompt we can access the gym from 6-45pm to set up.  Hope to see you all there. Sunday afternoons and Saturday mornings as normal at the rugby club
