2018’s outdoor season got off to a very wet and muddy start at Sywell on on Saturday 31st March. Despite this the Club had a good turn out from members, many of whom helped move all our targets and equipment from John Ashby Sports Hall to the boggy range. Heavy rain accompanied by large pools of water on the field did not put the hardy club off, and once all was off loaded and ready to go – Diane warmed everyone up with a fish and chip lunch. Most welcome. All we can hope for now is a dry spell – which does not seem to be forthcoming at present. Thanks to Diane and all who “mucked in” – literally – and made the day one to remember.

The conclusion to the Portsmouth Series will be addressed in due course.

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.
