Treetops Hospice Charity Event

General Posted on Fri, April 10, 2015 1:26 PM

Following a request made my Treetops
Hospice (Risley) after last years’ success, we were asked back again to
setup our ‘Have A Go Archery’ stall for their Easter Egg Hunt.

As last year, it was an early start
on Easter Saturday meeting at the Asterdale for 8am to load up our cars,
Tony was dragged out of bed to take the bosses in his pick-up. The
downside was we had a fair amount of rain over the week and
we may have left some ruts on the Asterdale ground (hopefully no-one will notice).
We made our way over to Treetops via a slight detour but we won’t
mention that. The team unloaded and setup in record time after a number
of debates due to Treetops
also being water-logged but we found somewhere safe to setup our stall.

After a slow start our stall soon got busy with people of all ages wanting a go at archery, we made
£210 which is up from last years’ £174. We were
charging £2 per 6 arrows so you can calculate we saw 105 people but the
reality is we did give a few people free goes so the team actually saw
more customers than the final figures indicate.
The ground was muddy and the weather was cloudy and cold but the team
remained motivated for the 5 hours we spent raising money for the
charity.

I would
like to extend my thanks to all our volunteers on behalf
of ABAC and Treetops Hospice.

DCAA Indoor Champs. 2015

Results Posted on Fri, April 10, 2015 1:13 PM

It was a fair turnout for Anchor Bowmen archers at the enjoyable DCAA
Senior and Junior Indoor championship, hosted at Derby University over
the weekend of the 14th & 15th of March 2015.

It was great to see our Junior Recurve members doing so well with Ethan
Hall taking 1st place (and overall junior champion boy) in the Under 18 competition, Elliott
Wilson taking 1st in the Under 16 competition and Lewis
Haslam coming first in the Boys Under 12 competition.

Another noticeable win was for Tim Simmonds in the Gent’s Longbow competition. It’s about time he won something! smiley

Full results can be found on our tournaments page.

Well done to all!
