NCAS Dawn til Dusk Challange Update

NCAS Dawn til Dusk Challange Update

We’re just 2 months away from the 2024 NCAS Dawn til Dusk Challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK, taking place on 14th July hosted by Towcester Archers at Towcestrians Sports Club, Greens Norton Road, Towcester NN12 8AW.

The total raised so far is a fantastic £866!!! But we need your help if we’re going to smash our target of £2,000!

The previous Dawn til Dusk events in 2015 and 2019 were truly fantastic and memorable occasions, and we would very much like this one to be just as successful in terms of raising funds of a wonderful cause, being a brilliant day spent in the company of archers from all over the county (and beyond), and all in memory of some amazing and greatly missed people who were very dear to the county.

There is no pressure to attempt to shoot for the entirety for the day, archers may enter and shoot 1, 2, 3 or all 4 rounds. Those who do want to attempt the challenge of shooting all 4 rounds will shoot up to 348 arrows by the end of the day!

The entry fee is a simple minimum donation of £15 to take part, regardless of how many rounds you shoot.

The day is meant for all levels, with senior novice archers (those who completed their beginners course no earlier than 1st January 2023) able to choose to shoot 40 yard rounds. (Windsor 40, Western 40, National 40, Warwick 40) or above. Otherwise it’s preferred that archers shoot the correct rounds for their age group, but this is a charity shoot at the end of the day and if archers prefer to shoot out of category that’s problem.

Rounds:
Windsor (inc. Windsor 50, 40 & 30) – sighters at 05:30am
Western (inc. Western 50, 40 & 30) – sighters at 10:30am approx
National (inc. National 50, 40 & 30) – sighters at 15:00pm approx
Warwick (inc. Warwick 50, 40 & 30) – sighters at 18:45pm approx
The start times may change depending on how quickly we get through the rounds on the day.

As per the previous NCAS Dawn til Dusk Challenge events there won’t be medals awarded for placings, but there will be a ‘little something’ as a thank you for taking part, and some spot prizes during the rounds. A results sheet will be emailed out and available on the NCAS website. NCAS county records will be eligible on the day.

There will be a raffle on the day with some really fantastic prizes so far including…
– A group tour for up to six people, of the Aston Martin Formula One factory at Silverstone!
– A ‘sports vision assessment’ including eye dominance, reaction timing assessment, colour vision testing and advice that is sports specific (value £695) using a system developed for Olympic and Elite athletes and sports men/women. Courtesy of Davis Optometrists in Kettering.
– Two tickets to the first Vice Presidents lunch of the 2024/25 Rugby season at Towcestrians Sports Club.
Plus a number of other great prizes available on the day.

There are 2 steps to enter…

STEP 1… first make a donation to the fundraising page (link below), which will be your entry fee. We’re asking for a minimum donation of £15. This can be a single one-off donation, or you can join the fundraising team and raise your own sponsorship on top of your donation by clicking ‘Join the team‘, and then ‘Create a new Giving Page‘. Obviously the more participants that take part and raise sponsorship the better.

Best of luck and we hope to see you on 14th July!

NCAS Charity Shoot

NCAS Charity Shoot

It was agreed at the NCAS county committee meeting on 22nd June, that the NCAS Charity Shoot be pushed back to take place next year.

This gives the hosts Towcester Archers, a better chance of hosting the event properly with the support of other county clubs.

The provisional date for next years event will be Sunday 21st July 2024, and it will remain a Dawn til Dusk endurance event. We will confirm this date as early as possible to give everyone looking to take part plenty of time to enter, gather sponsorship and prepare for the event.

Many thanks
