We return to shooting indoors on Monday 3rd September 2012.  From that date onwards (until May) shooting times/venues are:



Armadale Academy



Armadale Academy



Linlithgow Academy



Please note that due to the damaged safety net at St Kentigern’s Academy (Blackburn) not being repaired and the lack of interest shown by the school in having this remedied, we have been forced to seek another venue.  The committee considers it fortunate for the club that a slot became available at Armadale, which is an excellent venue with ample parking and a large, bright hall.  Safety net issues aside, this larger venue is more suited to our expanding numbers in the club.


Congratulations to Gilbert Jamieson who broke FOUR club records during August 2012.

FITA 1237 (was 1211) 04/08/12
30m 346 (was 341) 04/08/12
90m 278 (was 274) 18/08/12

York 1124 (was 1054) 19/08/12

The York score is particularly impressive, smashing the previous record (also held by Gilbert) by 70 points!!

A great result for Balbardie at the Glasgow Archers Open in August 2012


From left to right are Gilbert, Mark, Noah, Jenna and David - well done team Balbardie!

5 Gold medals is a pretty good haul for a couple of days in Glasgow!

Questions have been asked about what insurance cover is provided at various events & venues:

GNAS insurance cover is for shooting at GNAS/FITA events and approved practise facilities ONLY – anything else is your own responsibility.

The trial of shooting outdoors at Livingston Cricket Club has taken longer to organise than anticipated and is currently a work in progress.

This trial will NOT take place this outdoor season.
