Club Banner

Morning All…
Some time ago, this photograph was taken for the website…

I’ve been given permission to put a massive, permanent banner on the back wall above the net.

To do this, I can use this picture to make the banner, but I would rather reshoot the picture, preferably with a current member.

So I am wondering if anyone would entertain the idea of being the face, or rather elbow of the club.

Drop me a message if you’re interested…

If necessary I can shoot it multiple times and we can, as a club choose the best picture…

Thanks all

Last shoot of the year

Last shoot of the year coming up this Friday (17th December)

Secret Santa Rules

  • Your entry is a present with a value between £5 and £8 (your choice of which end of the scale you are at), the present is to be wrapped but not marked with any names etc.
  • The present is marked with a number, and a corresponding number is pinned to a boss.
  • Everyone then shoots one arrow each at the boss at the same time.
  • You then collect your arrows, if you hit a number, that present is the one you get.
  • Then shoot again until everyone wins a present.
  • 2 people in 1 number cancel each other out so both must shoot again.
  • If you hit your own number, shoot again
I’m open to suggestions for activities…
If anyone wants to bring some refreshments for a bit of a party, then by all means do so…

After that, we’ll be closed Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, reopening the first week in January (7th)

One End Wonder Competition

one end wonder
I am trying to put the fine details together for an in-house competition I’m calling “One End Wonder”
So far, my idea is for members to shoot as normal every week, and take a photo of your best end… if you beat the score that night replace the photograph… at the end of the night, either send me the photo of the highest-scoring end, either on messenger or via email…
I’ll then come up with some kind of leaderboard or table, weekly, monthly annual etc. Then I’ll sort some form of fair ranking (open to suggestions) … Can get some prizes or awards to back this up…
If nothing else it will be a good target to aim for with personal development…
I’m interested in knowing what members think, and how we can develop this better

The 300

2021 Halloween Bash

At the club, we have held some EPIC fancy dress Halloween shoots…
Halloween this year would be the 29th of October…
I’m interested in what the members want us to do?
Last year, I brought in the LARP Arrows… We could do that again… Food and music is a must… How about fancy dress?
We should discuss this now to get ready on time.
For those new enough to the club to not remember, have a look through the Facebook photographs…

Team Building Night

Our last club bonding night was February last year (just before COVID)…

As we’re closed over Hull Fair, I am wondering if any of our members fancy a couple of games of bowling like last time…

Bowling has always been a popular choice, as it’s something that our younger members can participate in…

If this is of any interest to our members, then let me know so we can arrange something…
