A date for your diary. The first Archery NI Inter Club Competition is happening on Saturday 24 June of June at Lisnagrvey High School.
This will be a fun competition for teams of between 4 and 8 archers representing their Archery NI affiliated club. The competition is being hosted by Lisburn City and East Belfast Archery Clubs and will suit club archers of all abilities, were you can select what distances you want to shoot from 20 to 60 Metres. Archers of any age and bowstyle are encouraged to participate as scores will be normailised to ensure teams can be made up of any combination of archers.
We’re hoping to have a barbeque running on the day and give everyone an enjoyable competition experience. Clubs can enter more than one team, so everyone can come and join in the fun. Entry forms will be available in the next few days so watch this space.
Call for Input
Input is requested from any member of Archery NI on the draft principles.
Feedback is requested to be made by email to Company Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 June 2017.
A summary of the inputs and the amended principles will be posted to the web site later in June.
The Championships are being held on the 2nd 3rd September at Lisnagarvey High School Lisburn.
The Championships will be a 1440 round with metrics 1-5 for the juniors. Novice archers with less then 2 years of membership can shoot shorter distance rounds for experience.
Sunday will be a 720 Round with H2H for Cubs, Cadets, Juniors, Seniors and Masters – again Novice Archers can take part for experience at distances to suit.
We hope clubs will encourage archers to attend and make this a memorable event. Competitions are great fun and it is good way of forging new friendships from across the country.
