UPDATE While we are blessed with an Indian Summer we will be shooting outside for as long as we can. If there is daylight and clear skies come at 6:30 for outside shooting.
While we are still able to shoot outdoors on Sundays, weather permitting, we are now moving indoors on Tuesdays and Thursdays because sunset is now at 7:45 which doesn’t leave enough time to set the field out and shoot before the light fades.
More on the indoor season competition later.
With a forecast of sunny weather and light Easterly breeze we are planning to shoot outside on Sunday, so bring boots and layers as the ground is likely to be soggy after all the recent rain. Temperatures should be in the teens, especially in the sunshine.
It’s a chance to get some distance sight-marks for the outdoor season.
On the 2nd August 2015 the county will be holding the 55th County and Open Championships 2015 which OVA are hosting. Preparations are well under way and much has already been done. As this is an whole-club event, we are requesting help from all members with the set-up and the field party for the event.
The shoot is at Redborne Upper School & Community College, Flitwick Road, Ampthill, Bedfordshire MK45 2NU
We will be marking out the field from midday on Saturday 1st August. We expect to have the field marked out by 2pm and be ready to start setting up the targets.
Saturday 1st August 12:00pm
We would like to request help in setting up the targets, erecting the marquee and preparing the field for the shoot. This is likely to takje about 4 hours, assuming we have help.
Sunday 2nd August from 8am
If you are able to offer assistance from with the Field Party in looking for lost arrows, assisting the judges, helping with the shoot and packing everything away again after the shoot has finished on Sunday evening, that would be much appreciated.
THERE WILL BE NO SHOOTING AT PUTNOE SCHOOL ON SUNDAY 2nd AUGUST – come along and help at Redborne instead.
Many thanks in anticipation.
