The first of our indoor series of club Portsmouth competitions got under way on Saturday 25th November at John Ashby Sports Hall, Moulton. Entries for the event came flooding in very quickly and the membership turned out in force to take part. There are four shoots in the series and members use their best three scores to get their rankings for the trophies at the end of the season. The next shoot takes places on 16th December before our Christmas Party.
Well done to the NAC archers selected to represent the club at the first leg of the Inter Club Competition hosted by WOAC on Saturday 27th May. The NAC team was made up of David Quemby, Karen Rolfe, Bez Tabberner, George Bond, Callum Howes, Ian Howes, Mick Lovell, Frazer Cross, Paul Walters and Mark Dalley.
The round shot was an American which was 2.5 dozen at 60 yards, 50 yards and 40 yards. Whilst the day was warm and sunny it was incredibly windy so a massive well done for showing team spirit throughout!
The results remain a firm secret with the second leg being hosted by Long Buckby Archery Club on 18th June which will be a 16 Target Field shoot. Dave Quemby will be in touch regarding the team soon. (thanks to Susan for the write-up and Simon Wright for the photo)

Round two of the new Inter Club Challenge, a field shoot at Daventry on Saturday 11th June, hosted by Long Buckby Archery Club was another great success with a full team taking part from NAC. This new event is proving to be a popular and fantastic idea. The next round is a Clout hosted by Kettering Archers on Sunday 24th July, with the final round on 30th July, being a Pope Young. NAC will be the hosts. The results so far are being kept top secret.
