It’s forecasting 14 degrees in the sunshine but the wind is quite chilly, so bring warm clothes, plenty of layers, and something that you can shoot in that won’t catch or snag on your arm.
There will be no Club shooting on Sunday 11th September as most of the Club is entered in the Kestrels National Tournament at Biggleswade.
Please come along to support Club archers at Stratton School Field (SG18 0NE) Alternative entrance.
Hope that’s okay.

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.
Congratulations to all archers on the January Beginners Course; you all passed with flying colours with some very promising archers showing their form.
Next Beginners Course will likely be in April with dates to be confirmed.
Clophill Archery Club have invited us to join them to shoot a FITA 900 (shorter distances are available on request) on Saturday 29th August at 12:00 for 12.45 assembly, with a 1pm start. This is a fun social shoot with other clubs from around the county.
The shoot will be held at Brazier’s Field Clophill behind the village hall. A BBQ will be available if weather is nice.
Please see Cheryl or Mike for details.
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.
The next round of the summer club competition will be held tonight.

There will be a Metric V which is three dozen arrows at 30m and 3 dozen arrows at 20m for Juniors to shoot. Ten-zone scoring also applies.
Thurs 9th July, Sun 12th July, Tues 14th July
If you can assist in putting the targets out it would help if you can be there a little early so that we can make the best of the daylight.
