A fantastic day shooting at Briar Rose Field Archers at their first competition on their new ground, lovely course! 6 WWA archers went (some for their first competition) and managed to dodge the rain (mostly). Well done to Mark Jenkins for getting silver in Barebow and Pete Bullock for winning the gold in Compound Limited.
Sunday 18th July hosted the clubs first archery taster sessions in over a year! This day was held to give prospective new members the opportunity to have a go under the supervision of our coaches before deciding if they would like to do a beginners course. The day was highly successful, with a large number of participants signing up for beginner courses. Hopefully this will produce some new members for the club!!
With the weather getting warmer and Covid restrictions being eased, it’s starting to feel a bit more normal down at the club! After several periods of closure over the last 15 months, it’s great to see the woods getting busier again, and to welcome new members that have joined us during the lockdown period. With local competitions now starting up again, we hope to resume sharing event news and shoot reports here again over the summer!
Thanks to everyone that came and joined in with the festivities at the club. Particular thanks to Mark for his ‘challenging’ Christmas targets, Lesley for mince pies and mulled wine, and Pete for the bacon and egg breakfast 🙂 Happy Christmas to all from Worcester Woodland!
It’s that time of year when everything’s getting darker, colder and wetter…. still lots going on down the woods though! Great work done by members recently in clearing up the clubhouse areas, building a new rain shelter over the practice range and changing the layout of the courses around. Huge thanks to everyone for coming down and helping! 🙂
