For those that don’t know…
Unlike other clubs in the area, we have reduced our prices as of the 1st September.
We have knocked our yearly membership of £24 and our insurance costs of £25 on the head, saving our adult members £49 per year.
To cover this, we needed to guarantee our income to make sure our bills are covered and so our weekly fees have been fixed £14 per month for adults, and £9 per month for under 16’s. These are to be paid by standing order on the 1st of the month.
Training fees, and equipment hire fees remain the same, and are to be paid on the night. Archery GB Fees (where wanted) will remain payable at the club in time for renewal. These will be at the advertised price by Archery GB and the club will not make anything from this..
I believe this makes us the cheapest club in the town once again, only surviving by the guaranteed monthly payment. We are after all a not for profit club.
We have also decided that once our equipment is renewed, we will spend any surplus of funds on extra fun nights for our members, paid for by the club.
If you haven’t got a standing order form yet, please get in touch and I’ll send one to you.
Also, and former members wanting to come back, now that the prices are more reasonable, feel free to get in touch, as we are recruiting now and once our memberships hit 24 people we will be closing the doors.
It’s quite urgent to get your mandates filled in and taken into your bank as these new prices and the first payments kick in on the 1st September.
Thanks everyone for your continued support,
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…

** 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
Right.. It’s official.. we are closed good Friday … have a great Easter kids, don’t make yourselves sick eating chocolate, adults don’t make yourselves sick drinking mucky beer..
See you all bright and chipper on 6th April…
We have a couple of Adult (16+) places in the club…
Please send me a text message for details.
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????
Club memberships are due when we return in January… However, once again they are remaining the same as per previous years.. £24 per adult and £12 per child
We have a training course starting on 10th November 2017.
If you’d like a place on the course please drop me a message via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form on the site.
