Our Juniors Fun Day, Awards Ceremony and Barbecue at Sywell last Saturday 26th September, was a storming success with a great turn out and beautiful sunny weather. Some of our more experienced and (dare we say) older archers thoroughly enjoyed joining the youngsters shooting balloons and plastic balls at the 20 yard range. Great Fun. Florence (Sidney Cato’s widow) joined us afterwards with her family to present the winners and participants in the Sidney Cato Shoots with shields and medals. Then came the barbecue. The food was absolutely amazing – wow! What a fantastic catering team! (I have been advised not to mention any names here!). Thanks to everyone at NAC who made this day so special. A real highlight of the year.
The new outdoor Sidney Cato Memorial Series of shoots kicked off on Saturday 6th June at Sywell. The day was quite warm, but very gusty – which made shooting interesting. Although entrants were slightly down on the usual numbers, due to various commitments elsewhere, the day was a great success with what appears to be at least a couple of club records being set. For some, this was their first outdoor competition and it was great to see participants taking brave steps forward at the longer distances. Well done. These are the results.
