Loads of NFAS Open Shoots happening now over the summer around the country, including some great 2 day weekend shoots with camping on site. Lovely photo below of Abby, Pete and James at Druids Solstice Shoot from June 🙂 New club members – if you’d like to book in to any shoots, check out the full calendar on the NFAS website or see the list in the members section of our website for competitions in our local area.
Worcester Woodland Archers held their first open shoot on 28th April. The shoot was held as a memorial and charity shoot in remembrance of Paul Coglan, our course layer who passed away. Towards the end of his life, St Richards Hospice had greatly helped Paul and the club made a donation of £710 from proceeds from the day. The weather was kind and we had 96 archers attend. Because it was a charity shoot we allowed club members to shoot but they were not allowed to win a prize. Visitors enjoyed the course and found some shots challenging. There were the usual jovial cries of ‘that target is too far away’ or ‘that tree is in the way’ etc etc which we interpreted as good course laying! 😉 Catering was laid on by Mon Coglan , Paul’s widow, and the food was fabulous and much appreciated. All had a good day and since the shoot we have had several archers revisit. One expressed that he had unfinished business with a shot or two! Thanks to all who attended and donated so generously to St Richards Hospice. More photos from the day can be found on our Gallery Page.
WWA are getting out and about around the country with the arrival of some glorious spring weather. Some fun courses and great results from recent NFAS open shoots at Wolfshead and Thornbury. Well done to Rex for winning the Under 16 Gents medal at Wolfshead, and Andy, Dave, Abby, James, Nick and Pete for collecting various shinies (and raffle prizes!) at Thornbury.
Belated news from the NFAS Championships! Pete and James are National Champions, retaining their Compound Limited and Cub Bowhunter titles from the 3D Champs. Abby also won her first National medal, a silver for Traditional Bowhunter. Everyone shot well on two challenging courses, a lovely weekend
