We Need To Raise £5000 Urgently for Club Expansion…

Hi Everyone

It’s common knowledge that we have been looking for an outdoor space for the club to shoot from.. This would enable us to increase our membership numbers, and include more junior and disabled members.

Well we have found a place, Hallgate Primary School in Cottingham…

We can sign the rental agreement, as soon as we’re ready, which is good news.

Our problems lay in the fact that there is no storage for our equipment.  I’ve been pricing around and this is quite an expensive thing we are looking at.

We also need a selection of suitable outdoor target bosses, stands , trolleys, training bows and arrows etc.

Ideally, we need around £10,000 but at a bare minimum we can get by with £5000 plus what funds we already have in the kitty, and worry about the rest later…

We only have a short amount of time to raise this money before the land becomes unavailable, and we have to start the search again…

Please help us by spreading this post around and by clicking the donate button below.

Many Thanks…





Dates for your diaries…

Hi All..
Club dates for your diaries…
 
I’m sure a lot of you have seen that The Model Railway Society which takes over the hall is on June 17th, which means that the club will be closed Friday June 15th.
 
Insurance and Archery GB… The insurance for shooting all expires on Friday 31st September, so insurance fees and Archery GB Fees (where necessary) will need to be paid by this date at the latest, as you wont be insured to shoot the following week with out it. (Prices to be released when known, but if it increases the club will most probably cover the shortfall)
 
As always, due to Hull Fair, we will be closed on the 5th and 12th of October, reopening on the 19th October.
 
As always we have our Annual General Meeting (Booze up) during Hull Fair week, which gives us the 5th, 6th, 12th or 13th of October, at either Three John Scott’s is town, or another suitable venue to be decided. (venue and date to be decided amongst members), for us to discuss the running of the club and what steps to take to keep it successful.
 
Halloween fancy dress fund raising shoot… Every year we have had a fund raising shoot for Halloween to raise money for the club.. The closest Fridays this year are 26th October or the 2nd November, again members to decide which dates and what we are going to do to raise money for the club
 
I’ve been asked if we could also close for a session later in the year for an event on Friday 9th November.
 
And finally Christmas. We’ll be closed on the 22nd and 29th December, reopening on the 5th of January 2019, for the new year.
 
Club membership, will be due on the 5th of January 2019 or as soon as you come back to shoot.. Fees increases (if any) will be reviewed at the AGM in October.

Hull Archery Club Vice Chair Vacancy

** LITTLE BIT OF OFFICIAL CLUB BUSINESS **

We have had a series of short meetings over the past few weeks. And on the facts, that Mr Andrew Wilson hasn’t attended the club since 2017, we needed to replace him as the clubs Vice Chairperson…

We discussed suitable replacements within the club, and a decision was made about a possible replacement. Last night I approached said person and discussed the role and position, who agreed to accept the position, if the club was OK with it.

So I need to ask the members of the club, if anyone has any reason to disagree with the appointment of Paul Creaser as the new Hull Archery Club Vice Chair person, replacing Andrew Wilson, from the date of the next club session on the 6th of April 2018.

Paul has been a valued club member for a few years, and has recently stepped up and taken over the running of the competitions, scoring and badges etc. with specific interest in keeping our youth section busy and working towards new targets and goals.

We think he will be a valued asset to our management team, but as said, this has to be a club decision.. Members not commenting will be classed as giving their approval.. So time to have your say 

Thanks

Final shoot of the year…

This week is our last archery week of the year, returning on 5th January…

Don’t forget to wear your Christmas jumpers, and shoot our snowmen targets..

Also, after last years success, if you want to enter our Secret Santa game, your entry fee is a wrapped present, with an approximate value of £5 (child friendly just in case one of our younger members win it)…. Normal Club Fees still apply…

If anyone fancies bringing in a few items for a bit of a buffet or some drinks, then please do… (i’ll get some biscuits or something)

I think Mark mentioned him bringing in a sound system, but not knowing what his music taste is, it might be a good night????
