My proposed changes to the constitution RE addition of Alumni Officer still need to be added/shuffled around on the agenda/constitution links.

At time of posting agenda still says there are no constitution changes, and the actual change to the constitution is not shown (although explanation is shown in agenda)

The 2016 Archery Annual General Meeting will be taking place in The Lounge (Level 5) on Thursday the 21st of April 2015 at 6pm.

As with other years it will be a requirement for anybody planning to stand for a position to submit their intention along with a short manifesto supporting their bid for the respective position.  These will be made available for the club to read prior to the meeting and allow them to think of any questions they would like to have answered at the AGM by the individual standing.

Anybody running for a position or proposed amendments/additions to the constitution have to be made in writing and submitted to the club email by the 18th of April and will be made available to see in the agenda.




Proposed New Constitution

Well done to everyone that shot in Montrose! You'll be glad to hear that you shot a qualifying score for BUCS, for a first outing that's not bad!  ;)

So itís been great to see so many Novices shooting scores and good ones at that! 

I thought I would write a quick post on how to fully fill out a scoresheet.  Most scoresheets follow a similar structure but have slight differences.  If youíre ever scoring at a competition and youíre a little unsure donít be afraid to ask someone, theyíll always help you out!

The most important thing whilst filling out a score sheet is to make sure youíre details at the top are correct!  Some competitions will have your information already printed at the top of the scoresheet and some you will have to fill in yourself, make sure itís correct or you could find yourself in the wrong category!

When youíre writing the arrow values in they should always be called highest to lowest in groups of 3 arrows (If shooting 6 arrows an example would be "Ten, Ten, Ten, *pause* Nine, Nine, Nine") whilst the archer calls their arrow values they should be pointing arrow as they call it's value, you and your target companions should be checking what theyíre calling. Misses get marked with an "M".  You then write them down in the space provided whilst repeating back what they have called. During the scoring process you shouldn't ever touch your arrows, if there is a disagreement on arrow value and you've touched the arrow you will end up getting the lower value! If an arrow value is incorrectly called, or you make a mistake a judge must be called and will make any amendments in red ink, donít ever change the value yourself and donít be afraid of asking a judge toÖeven the most experienced archers at the top levels still make mistakes!

Typically target sheets follow a horizontal structure, the below image will explain this better.  After half a dozen there will be a half dozen total and at the end of the dozen the two half dozen scores should be added together to make the dozen total.  Also at the end of the dozen there will be a hits and 10ís column which naturally is the total hits and 10ís shot in that dozen

Also at the end of the scoresheet there will be a Running Total column (RT).

At the end of the shoot as an archer it is your responsibility to check over your score and importantly the addition! You will have to sign for your score and if you sign for a lower score, you will get that lower score! Sadly if you sign for a higher score you get the real score!

Make sure that at the end of a shoot ALL the boxes are filled in! Event organisers wonít do your maths or fill in empty boxes and they will be quick to return your scoresheet or worse reject your score!

Key things to remember!

  • Double check your details!
  • Get a judge for any changes!
  • Do all the maths!
  • Check your final score!
  • Sign for your score!

And as always, if you have any questions ask!

The bus will be leaving from the Car Park on High Street at 6:30am! (eek I know!). The shoot starts at 10 so we'll have plenty of time to pootle up and stop for Bacon!

Remember your AGB Receipts (You'll get them this week) and a smile.

I haven't calculated fuel yet but that will be due once we're back.

Also, correct me if I'm wrong but the clocks 'fall back' this Saturday night/Sunday Morning so in my mind we actually get an extra hour in bed thus making the 6:30 start not so bad...clutches at straws....
