Potential Flight Shoot August 2020

If you saw Archery GB’s ‘Return to Competition’ update on 7th July you might have spotted this:

“The National Flight Championships are cancelled. However, we may be able to hold a record status shoot adhering to social distancing and other government guidelines, if it proves viable for the hosts. If you are interested in attending this, please contact Tony Bakes – email:”

I’m told this would take place at Church Fenton on either 9th or 16th August. If anyone needs help or info about shooting flight there would be instructions on the day – it really is an accessible discipline of the sport. (And a great chance to see how far an arrow can go!) For further info you can also contact the good folk at Riverside Archery Club:

Sylvia Trotter

The county received some sad news today. Sylvia, the wife of former county treasurer and life long Cleadon member Brian Trotter, has passed away. 
Our deepest sympathies go to Brian his family, and his many friends.  

DNAA County Outdoor Events 2020 – please read

The DNAA Executive have considered the logistics of moving all DNAA events to the end of the outdoor season.

Many factors were taken into account, not least the lack of days remaining in the calendar during the outdoor season meaning that the 5 days un-allocated on the competition calendar meant that some would still have to be cancelled for 2020.

We also discussed the fact that some of the clubs hosting may not be allowed onto their venues for quite some time (being shared facilities), the availability and health of volunteers (including judges), comfort facilities, lack of practice for archers, accommodation and the ability to ensure that venues were large enough to ensure social distancing and Government guide lines were adhered.

It would not be fair due to the lack of available dates/volunteers to choose to put on some events and not others.
The decision has therefore been made to cancel all DNAA Events during the outdoor season to enable clubs to concentrate on getting their members and clubs shooting again.

Stay safe and well.
