EMAS Tournaments in 2021

EMAS Tournaments in 2021

Information for all archers in the EMAS region from EMAS Tournament Advisor, Lynn Fisher…

“Welcome back to archery!

You will be interested to know, that County Team Managers, Club Tournament Organisers hosting EMAS shoots, EMAS Chairman and myself have been working behind the scenes in consultation together. We have looked at and discussed at great length the feasibility of staging EMAS Tournaments for 2021 under the AGB regulations for returning to archery/competitions.

Outcome: Tournaments will go ahead for 2021. There will be some changes to format of the Junior teams inter-counties and the Senior teams inter-counties tournaments. Hopefully, if by September, we are back to some normality, then these changes may not happen. Information will be released nearer the time when we have more details from AGB.

Tassel and UK Record Status.
Please head to The Clout Collective web site for ENTRY form – it is filling up already.

Please note that the Inter-counties Teams Clout should have taken place in March 2021, however, a decision was taken to postpone until towards the end of the year.

If you are an archer within the EMAS Region and have already/ or intend entering TCC clout shoot, it may be wise to let your County Team Manager know, especially if you wish to be considered for selection to represent your county. It is not the responsibility of TCC to inform County Team Managers that you have entered their competition.

Due to lockdown restrictions many archers have been denied the chance to shoot/practise. Therefore selection for County teams may be done differently to the norm this year (as a one off for instance). To make it a little easier for County Team Managers to carry out their job, under these difficult circumstances, please contact them and let them know you would like to be considered for selection. This is especially important if you are a Junior, as ages and bow styles will have more of an impact on the organisation of the Junior event under present circumstances.

I hope that archers within the EMAS Region, will support the efforts of Club Tournament Organisers hosting these shoots. Every effort will be made to make your time at the shoot covid safe by adhering to the regulations/guidelines of AGB.

Information can also be found on ArcheryGB and Sport80 calendars.

Thanking you in advance for your support and participation.

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.

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.

NCAS Team Captain
