Inter-County Summer Postal Shoot 2021

Inter-County Summer Postal Shoot 2021

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 Including Traditional ( Wooden Arrows , BB & Horse Bow) outside of Longbow

4. When to be shot: All scores to be in by 31st July 2021

5. How round is to be shot: Where possible can the 6 dozen 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. Scores can be submitted either by:
· Either utilising the web portal as before I can pass these details on again to those who have not got the information
· Or sending the details direct to myself or your club selection committee volunteer. If these are to be sent direct to me please let me know details as mention in point 6

That`s it. Please acknowledge receipt of this email and if possible let me know that you will be taking part and we can expect scores from your archers. I think that every county rep has been included in this email where the county clubs have acknowledge who their Rep is. If that is not the case please let me know or pass it on.

An update from Rose (Junior Rep)

An update from Rose (Junior Rep)

“Firstly I would like to apologise for the delay in the first newsletter but it’s almost complete and will be posted out shortly.

The delay came following a number of contacts made and we just wanted to make sure I have absolutely covered all aspects from a safeguarding viewpoint.

I am pleased to say that with my mum’s help I have been in communication with the AGB safeguarding team and I have also attended my first AGB webinar representing you all as it was specifically about juniors and what clubs etc might do to communicate better but also to find out what we want and have our views represented. So, the newsletter is late I have been doing some bits of work for you.

Once the letter has landed and I will send an electronic copy to the webmaster to be accessed from the NCAS website for those who don’t receive it, if you have anything you want to ask or suggest for the next newsletter please do let me know and I do appreciate Pat’s kind allowance of the secretary email to allow messages to be passed on.

With lockdown easing I hope to see some of you soon.”

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.
