The Royal Toxophilite Society

Hi County Archers

Just to let you know that some of you may receive an invite from the ‘The Royal Toxophilite Society’ you may be asked to shoot on behalf of either of the following companies.

( and

Also just so there is clarification the only part I have to play within this is outlined in the below.

‘Since it is the wish of the Companies that a selection of the best archers in the country should compete for their Prizes I would be most grateful if you could assist me by sending me the names and email addresses of the top six ladies, top six gentlemen and the top disabled archers in your county shooting recurve and compound style bows during 2014.’

I will pass details on to the organisers of this event and they will in turn contact the archers directly, I thought I should let you know so you will all be aware that the mail isn’t a junk mail, spam..

In the past we as a county or as my role as County captain have not been approached to put names forward, this has only started to happen recently, before this was carried out by EMAS so I hope some of you are asked to represent the county previous archers who have attended enjoyed the event.

Good luck and please let me know if you have been asked, as Im trying to get you all an invite at some point.

EMAS Senior Squad

As of last year EMAS now has a Senior Squad. The main selection shoot for this years squad will be the annual EMAS Senior Inter County Shoot (the Thoresby) in September.

However, county archers are encouraged to send their scores from competitive 12 dozen rounds (WA1440’s & York/Herefords) as the outdoor season progresses. Please send your scores to Ken Charlesworth (EMAS Senior Squad Manager).

The next outing of the EMAS Senior Team will be against WMAS (West Midlands) on Saturday 6th June 2015. For those county archers interested, the entry form is here. The shoot is a Double WA1440 (FITA Star) being hosted by Sherwood Archers. The Challenge Match between EMAS & WMAS is incorporated on the Saturday. Any archers who are interested in this but are not currently EMAS Senior Squad members can send their scores to Ken for consideration.
