Well, back from holiday and there's lots to update!
ROUND OF THE MONTH
Club records have been updated, and August's Round of the Month has been uploaded. Despite another month of wet shooting, it was a good turnout, with Richard Haynes (+40) taking recurve, William Swingler (-5) the compound and Bob Allcock's +43 netting him the longbow trophy.
Next ROM is Tuesday 12th September at 7pm.

NATIONAL MEMORIAL ARBORETUM VISIT
Last Saturday (19th August), twelve members took a trip to the National Memorial Arboretum, and all had a great time! Weather was a bit mixed but not too bad. They visited the Armed Forces Memorial and then went to the Chapel for 11am for a talk and the Last Post, followed by two minutes silence.
Afterwards they all boarded the road train for a 50 minute tour of the site with recorded talks on lots of the memorials along the way, then on to lunch in the new restaurant.
All were free to do their own thing after lunch. Everyone was impressed by the guides' knowledge of the site, A big, big thank you to Christine Oxford from all those who attended for her help in organizing and making our outing such a pleasure. Will do it again sometime!
