The Robin Hood Challenge

14th August and 4th September 2021

These two weekends saw the “The Robin Hood Challenge” take place. Thanks to all helpers especially Lois who supplied refreshment, especially the Jaffa Cakes. There were three groups Senior members, New members and Junior members. Prizes will be awarded next weekend. Two Robin Hood jugs, and for Juniors a Robin Hood hat with feathers.

The second weekend saw a number of junior members taking part. We would all like to thank Steve for installing his “Magnificent Flying Machine” we will definitely be bringing it out again. Quite a challenge shooting at a moving target!

Below are the final scores, Steve and John shot again, their second round scores prove practice makes perfect.

Don't shoot the bear competition

6th July 2019

Thanks to all who attended the shoot which ended up with some interesting statistics! The overall winner on points was 1st Yan (264) 2nd Bob (206) 3rd Justyna (142) But of course what you really want to know was how the cuddly animals got on. Justyna and Yan were so kind as to not hit them once, the rest of us were not so considerate. And as for Dominik he seemed to bear a grudge towards the Porky Pig with a total of 8 hits, tut, tut. No bacon sandwiches for him for the next month. How the animals got on, number of hits taken: 1st Porky Pig 13 hits (only 5 without Dominik’s contribution) 2nd Donkey 12 hits (bad luck Eeyore, shouldn’t have such big ears) 3rd Teddy Bear 9 hits (how could you you miserable archers) 4th Monkey 8 hits (should have stayed up the tree) 5th Chicken 4 hits (off to KFC you go) 6th. Camel (don’t get the hump, you came of best) There was some pretty impressive scores with many 5s scored in individual ends, but my only claim to fame on the day was to score a max. of 30 in one end. I feel that there will now be a concentration on 60cm target faces at 20 yards awaiting the next DON’T SHOOT THE BEAR CHALLENGE. Once again thanks to all participants. Bob
