RESULTS – NCAS vs BCAA Postal Match

Hi All

Just a big thank you for all that took part in the intercounty postal shoot 2020 out of the 62 archers taking part with 12 of those being archers who have shot less than a year which is great!!!.

After taking the highest score submitted from each Archer I awaited the call from BCAA (Bedfordshire County Archery). After the usual pleasantries we got down to business of how many archers per category would make the team.

This time it was difficult as I had twice the number of archers than they did so I matched their numbers. So from the 62 archers I had to take 30 top scores from the various categories.

Below is the outcome of the POSTAL 2020

Yep they got us this time!!!

All those that took part will be receiving a ‘Postal Shoot’ pin badge as soon as I have these I will get these to you ‘via Club reps’.

Those who made the NACS Team will be receiving Year Bars and the ‘Broch’ to hang these off it’s your first team shoot. Check the results to see if you made the team ‘NCAS V BCAA’ tab on the result sheet.

For the novices 1st yr shooting a separate event was held within the intercounty shoot and the results of this can be found on the ‘Novice’ tab of the results. Novices will be receiving a certificate and medal.

Again as soon as I have all the items together these will be sent to your club rep to pass on.

Big thank you to the Clubs that hosted open events ‘within permitted guidelines’ at the time for archers to get the chance to shoot and put a score in. Promoting and keeping me in line??

For the county committee letting me get on with ordering new badges to be made up for this event!!

Dean for putting the certificates together!!

And for the Bedfordshire team captains Terry Course & Suzi Bredin for getting the web portal sorted and getting involved.

Can’t wait for the next one!!! Already in the planning.

Thank you all again really hope to see you all on the shooting line soon.

Take Care, Be safe.

Thank You…

“Just want to say thank you to Wellingborough OAC for opening its range for the county last Sunday 11th October, to give archers in the county a chance to have a go at the Postal 2020 shoot!

It was great to catch up with those that attended and the weather was great. Again a special thank you to the team Paul, Peter & Helen and those that I can’t remember the names of.”

Northants v Beds Inter-county ‘Covid’ Postal Match

Northants v Beds Inter-county ‘Covid’ Postal Match

Dear All,

As the heading suggests, in collaboration with Bedfordshire, we have arranged a socially distanced intercounty match. Details as follows.

We are hoping that all NCAS clubs and archers will be able to take part.

1. Round to be shot: Short Metric, including all the junior rounds (M1, M2, M3, M4, M5).

2. Eligible archers: All genders and ages. If a junior please give your age and round/distance shot.

3. Bow Styles: All

4. When to be shot: All scores to be in by 2nd November 2020

5. How round is to be shot: We realise that with 6 dozen arrows to be shot that may well take a while, with the night’s drawing in, possibly not all 6 dozen can be shot on the same day. We ask that if you cannot complete the 6 dozen at one session, please shoot them in 2 sets of 3 over 2 sessions if needed (not just one dozen per session)

6. Record all the scores as you would normally, X`s, 10`s and so on. Please submit the final score totals only (not each individual arrow value) in the normal format, including the following information. Archer, Gender. Club. Bow Style. Senior/Junior (if junior age and which round shot). Example: J Doe. Female. Middle Earth. Longbow. Senior. X 59. 10 13. Score 720.

7. All the scores will be on trust. We will be watching you.

8. We are at the moment working on a collating system for the scores. When that is up and running there will be information as to how you can submit the scores.

Here’s another cheeky question if any club can offer up targets slots for archers to shoot this would be great. I would pimp Long Buckby AC out but we’ve got no access for the next 10 days to do with the refurb of car park.

If clubs don’t want to offer not a problem I also understand this too.

If the clubs could let me know asap if they will be taking part and we can expect scores from your archers. Either via the club county rep or directly to me.
