Josie would like to thank all those members who contributed for her lovely flowers and gifts on the occasion of her Birthday and Retirement.
Congratulations to Gilbert for setting 3 new club records this week. 274 score at 90m, beating his previous 266 record. 316 at 70m beating Murray's previous 310 and a double FITA record of 2389, beating Murray;s previous 2358. Two Master Bowman scores in a row too, the second one shot with a broken Nock point! Now that's just showing off.
Also congratulations to Kevin for finally smashing through the 1000 FITA! He's worked hard to get past that hurdle, but 1089 on Saturday showed all the hard work paying off.
Well done guys!
After 18months of debate and searching Balbardie Archers may have found a new home.
We are considering moving the outdoor venue to Livingston Cricket Club in a ground sharing agreement for outdoor shooting.
Our potential new home has much better facilities including:
- a club house with bar, loos, changing rooms and showers;
- a better access road and lots of parking;
- no footballers.
Moving the club facilities will be an Agenda Item for the club AGM on Friday the 20th of April. So if you want to air your view on the future of your club come along.
The shooting sessions as we move from indoors to outdoors are as below.
NOTE CHANGE FOR MONDAYS : NOW SHOOTING AT BALBARDIE ON MONDAYS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
New members should be aware that 'Balbardie' refers to the field at Bathgate Sports Centre behind the 5-aside football pitches; you will generally see the targets as you drive down the road. We normally park on the old running track accessed by a track at the side of the 5-aside pitches.
