This week saw Mark and Joseph go up against each other in the Barebow division. Mark took this one but we should see an excellent battle develop over time.
We also saw Simon come out on top taking out the normally triumphant Dougal.
Things are getting interesting

Indoor League Final for 2017 this Sunday 26th November

Final round this Sunday with double points to the division winners.  Presentations will be followed by a BBQ and the range will be closed to the public from 10 till 1.  Let’s see every lane filled and have a great time wrapping up the year and see who takes out the neck-and-neck battle between Victor and James for the recurve title.

The inaugural Sunday indoor archery shoot

The 11th of December saw the inaugural shoot starting from 10am till 12pm on Sundays.

Event – World Archery Indoor Archery Round
18m, 60 arrows, Compounds score an inner ten.


With the unusual situation of only one compound shooter in attendance Cory extended his lead in his division with another 9 points. I’m guessing Cory is not a morning person taking 30 arrows to warm up.

Cory – 247 + 261 = 508

The Recurve division was more contested with four archers competing. This was the first scoring round for Frank and Andrew in a very long time and Andrew did well to keep it on the target as 18m on the small target in further then he is used to. Frank also warmed up as the comp progressed scoring 30 better in the second half. James and Dougal are finding the gold with greater frequency with both putting in some very good ends but James managed to hold off Dougal and take todays winn.

James – 232 + 229 = 461

Dougal – 208 + 214 = 422

Frank – 167 + 197 = 364

Andrew – 104 + 95 = 199

Monday – 6th club shoot

Monday saw the beginning of the Heidelberg Archers Shooting year; starting in Summer.
We had five member attending with 3 shooting, I (Glenn) had a lot of beginners at the centre so my attention was elsewhere and David who had done his shoulder in has to wait 2 weeks before shooting again.
This leaves Cory (compound), Richard (recurve) and Victor (recurve)to battle it out.

ROUND – World Archery 18m

The night managed to bring out the best from Cory and Richard with both recording personal bests. Victor is taking a long term view and is at the moment concentrating on his technique and flinging a lot of arrows down the range.

Cory 271 + 263 = 534

Richard 242 + 243 = 485
Victor 225 + 246 = 471

Club Championship
1st. Cory – 9 points
1st. Richard – 9 points
2nd. Victor – 7 points

Club shoot Monday 7:30

Club shoots are happening on Monday’s at 7:30 and go until 9’ish.

If you have an interest in archery then come along and we will help you get started.

As a new club we have been getting a small committed turn out of 5 or 6 archers. Due to the small numbers it is all in; recurves, longbows and compounds.

When I was shooting at Horsham the shoots there were similarly small and I remember it being friendly and enjoyable. Later the club grew the club didn’t become less friendly or enjoyable but I looked back fondly of the small times. So get in early you will enjoy.

Kind Regards
