Field Taster Session (Yorkshire)

Dearne Valley Archery Club hosted a Field Taster on 11th November with 25 archers attending on a bright and sunny day, even though it was a little chilly!

There was a lot of positive feedback, attendees asking when the next taster is and a few archers also asked to become associate members. Dearne Valley are planning to run more taster sessions in the new year – watch this space!

Thank you to all archers for supporting the taster event and to Dearne Valley for hosting the taster linked to the NCAS Field Subgroup.

Field Taster Session (Cheshire)

One of the first taster sessions organised by the Cheshire Field rep Stuart Walsh (as part of the NCAS Field Subgroup) took part at New Century with 10 archers taking part. It was a perfect day weather wise and everyone who came really enjoyed it, so much so everyone wanted to go round again after lunch, and that’s what they did!
Sounds like a resounding success – keep your eyes peeled for further Field taster sessions 🏹

Club Secretary Catch Up – 7 December

At a recent club catchup, it is noted that club secretaries would welcome the opportunity to come together and discuss a number of topics that impact the role and meet other club secretaries.

The first topic discussion will take place on the 7 th December at 7pm. I have created the following form to allow any interested individuals to raise a topic(s) they would like to see discussed. If there are a large number of topics, I will look to cover these in additional sessions.

Here is the link, as promised above:  NCAS Club Secretaries – 7th December 2023

If you have any queries or would like to discuss this further, please let me know.

Many thanks
