The October Awards and Competitions
As October brings us the Bray I and the Portsmouth Rounds.
Bray I is generally in internal club competition but the Portsmouth round opens up a few more opportunities with the Virtual Archery League, The SCAA Postal competition, and of course our own Handicap Competition.
A few hardy folks take part in one outside round the – Frostbite. This is organised by SCAA as a postal competition.
New Club Records
The progress achieved by our archers is genuinely inspiring. Breaking records and achieving feats highlight the limitless potential and opportunities within their reach.
Seeing our archers work so hard to reach their goals is fantastic, they show that the journey of self-improvement can be exciting and that anything is achievable with the right mindset.
Keep up the great work, and never stop striving to be the best.
There are many, more records still to be achieved and lots of scope to improve on those already listed.
Check out all the club records.
