Notice of NCAS AGM – 12th November 2020

Formal notice is given for the NCAS AGM which will be held via Zoom on 12/11/2020 at 19.30 hrs. As this meeting is not face the face the committee have requested that I send out all information in good time, in order that clubs can communicate with their members and receive feedback.

Please forward any feedback to the county secretary Pat Jones, and she will pass on to the committee members. This will then be discussed at a special committee meeting on 29/10/2020 via Zoom set up for this purpose. Everyone will thereby have had an opportunity to input their feedback / views for consideration. This will enable an informed AGM even under the current difficult circumstances.

Sadly there will be no opportunity to award trophies this year.

You can download the following documents…
AGM 2020 Agenda
Minutes from 2019 AGM.
Proposed 2021 county committee meeting dates.
County calendar dates for 2021 – The county calendar has been organised along similar lines to previous years as preparation for a hopefully more normal outdoor season next year.

There will be more information being sent out shortly in order that all members are kept informed and have an opportunity to input their views.

The AGM is, as always, open to all members and the Zoom meeting can accommodate more members than normally attend the AGM. If your members wish to participate, please forward their names and email addresses so that an invitation can be sent out.

The Zoom meeting details will be made available closer to the date.

With best wishes for a successful AGM.

Jack’s Junior Rep Introduction

Jack’s Junior Rep Introduction

At the recent county AGM I was nominated for and became the new county junior representative. I thought I should start by introducing myself. My name is Jack Sharpe, I am soon to be 14 years old and I am a member of WOAC (Wellingborough Open Archery Club).

I started shooting in the summer of 2015 after trying a number of other sports.

Archery very quickly became my passion and what I choose to spend my time doing, pretty much all my waking time is spent archery related!

I became our club junior representative and have attended all county meetings since and I also attended the EMAS AGM. I am very interested in what is happening for the juniors within the county and to try and help/support them where I can.

Our sport is very important to me, I love how anyone can try it and take part and enjoy helping people discover it, this is why I also applied for and became an AGB ambassador in March 2019 as part of the new programme that AGB were launching.

I love competing and shoot locally and further a field, also shooting for the county and the region. I take my training my training very seriously and I am part of the National Talent Development Programme with AGB which I attend as part of my training programme at Aim4sport.

I do also enjoy the social side of our sport and that it brings lots of people together that might not meet outside of archery.

I have suffered injury setbacks so understand the frustrations of wanting to shoot and being unable to and, due to my epilepsy, also understand how health can affect us as archers.

I shall keep in contact via the county committee and shall be interested to know how you are all getting on.

If you want to get in touch with me, your responsible adult can pass on your messages or questions to my mum’s email at treasurer@woac.co.uk

I look forward to meeting those of you that I haven’t already and hope that I represent you all well, please do contact me with anything you want me to bring to committee meetings for you.

Looking forward to seeing what this next year brings you all.

Jack Sharpe
