NCAS Dawn til Dusk Charity Shoot 2021!

NCAS Dawn til Dusk Charity Shoot 2021!

Hello everyone,

As you know when I organised the NCAS charity shoot in 2019 I told you all that I would repeat the madness in 2021.

My aim, if the pandemic allows, is another dawn to dusk shoot as we had great fun and the sessions allowed people to do as much or as little they wanted.

This year we will be raising money for Cransley Hospice (dear to the hearts of many in the county for care of members of our archery family), again the East Midlands Air Ambulance (as we spent the money we raised on an emergency at an archery field in the county) and Young Minds which is a charity aimed at supporting children and young people’s mental health.

So I would like you to firstly, take a look at your calendars in 2021 and I would like to set the date for the end of June – let me know if there are any issues that I might need to avoid. Also, if the pandemic prevents it as the dawn to dusk format please have a think of ideas if we need to do something a little different.

Wishing you all a healthy 2021 and hope to see us all back out shooting soon.

NCAS Dawn til Dusk – Target List

NCAS Dawn til Dusk – Target List

Countdown is ticking on and we are getting close to the start of our crazy day of arrows!

I hope that everyone has a great time, please see attached a preliminary target list.

If I wasn’t sure exactly what you want to do I may have booked you into more than you may want, don’t worry, I don’t know what everyone wants to show bow style wise as I know some people have discussed a different bow for each session, again don’t worry.

There may be people who join you as there is an open invitation to turn up and shoot if they find they have time on the day, everyone is welcome to come and shoot when we are all there with the same aim, have fun for charity.

Any questions please ask.

There will be spaces on the score sheets to complete any missing information to ensure that when we collars the results for the Chris mason league that the results are accurate.

There will be no medals, however there is a little memento planned for each archer taking part, this will not be ready on Saturday but I will get them out to everyone afterwards, it is a little surprise to say thank you for taking part and to remind you afterwards that we all had a great day for a great cause.

A reminder that the event will count towards the 2018/19 Chris Mason Celebration League. Archers highest single National round score of the day will be used, regardless of session. Please email the county records officer Dean Edwards if you need clarification.

Weather – the forecast for Saturday is still hot!!! Exactly what we need on an endurance shoot!
 Please be mindful of the possible heatwave when planning clothing and what to bring with you on the day. The day is about fun, not making ourselves unwell.
