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 )
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.
Notice of AGM:
We are holding our AGM on Sunday 10th November at 4pm after the first Postal Frostbite of this year.
Don’t forget that we will be having assembly at 1-30 ready for a 2 o’clock shoot-off every Sunday now until the clocks go forward again.
Please try to come along to the AGM even if you can’t make the frostbite, we are holding it in the clubhouse and we have got electric heaters to keep us warm if necessary.
There will also be a few nibbles and drinks to keep it a friendly meeting and there are important issues to decide on. Don’t leave the whole running of the club to committee members, the club belongs to all of us so for instance, if we increase membership fees and you object it will be too late after the meeting.
Would all members shooting rounds please use correct score sheet and put name, round, date and bow style on score sheet so scores can be recorded
The Club website is at https://soac.org.uk/wp/ where there is now a club event calender.
