The tables have been built and are now available.’where-am-i’ list also updated and only the ‘gossip’ to write and post, but this will happen in a day or two. Two more months to go then we all try a new season outdoors.
Sad news for our friends at Norton. Recently John Wray who shot there for many years was county champion several time, and represented the county for many years. Passed away after a short illness. John will be remembered for his dry wit and engaging smile. Our sympathy goes to John’s wife Pauline and all his family.
We have also been told that Barry Monaghan, one of Norton’s founding members as well as Grangefield Archers has also passed away. Our sympathies go to his wife Jane son Rob, 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

Killingworth Archers are running a 6 week beginners course, starting Wednesday 13 February, and have a few places still available. If anyone is interested, details can be found on the Killingworth Archers web site.
This year once again, Archery GB is running a postal shoot for individual archers. You should simply submit your best score for a Portsmouth round that
you have shot in January.
This is actually the sixteenth time the Challenge is being run. We started it in 2004 as something that every club member could take part in, and we have
steadily increased the number of entrants from a start of around 200 – until, a couple of years ago, we suddenly leapt up to over 1,000. But there are still
plenty of archers out there. Juniors can enter but will be counted alongside adults (often they do, and, of course, beat them); if provided, their age will be
shown in the results. AFB should be included in “Recurve Barebows” but will be marked as AFB if we are told.
A small trophy will be awarded to each section winner.
Portsmouth (Archers may use either full or 3-spot faces, but will be counted together)
