Volunteers, please, for field party on Thursday 6th Spetember 2012 (marking the field) and Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th September 2012.

Many hands make light work, and with a full field to set up on each day of the competition, targets to be moved between distances and then packing up at the end of the day, there is plenty of work to be done!

If possible, let Josie know when you are able to help; turning up unannounced is also good.

The Grange centre will not be available for Archery on the following dates:
Sunday 12th August
Sunday 2nd September
Sunday 16th September

Can you all pass this information on to all other archers that normally join us on a Sunday at the Grange.

David Herd broke his own club record for compound with a FITA score of 1342 on Saturday10/6/2012 at Banchory.

This improved on his previous best of 1326 on 21/8/11 by 16 points.

Well done David!

And also a big thank you for all the work David has done building new target stands for the club, a very professional job greatly appreciated by the members.


On checking his other club records we discovered that David has also broken his own club records for Gents Compound in:

Round Was Now
90M 309 321
70M 335 338
50M 332 335
30M 352 355

A good haul for Balbardie at the Bannockburn metrics on Saturday!  Well done all!

Hard work and dedication to the sport is paying benefits to Gilbert who this weekend shot a new club record (1211 FITA) , beating the previous help by Murray since 2002 by 1 point and also a new double FITA record  (2394), beating his own from May this year by 5 points. A great performance which will see him in good form going into the Euronations in July. This also secures Gilbert's Master Bowman classification - and it's only June!
