Website Issues

We apologise for the issues we have been having with the site over the last week.

As you can see we have managed to restore the site but are aware that there are still some issues most notably with the date formats for a lot of the entries in the tournament diary.

We are continuing to work on these to restore the full functionality of the site as soon as possible.

Alan Ruby Memorial Tournament, 31st October & 1st November 2015

Alan Ruby

Sussex archery lost one of its major figures in June with the passing of Alan Ruby.

An accomplished archer in his own right, Alan was also a founder member of Holbrook Archers and a former President of the Sussex County Archery Association.  For many, however, he will be best remembered as a great friend, a gentleman who could be depended on for sound advice, encouragement and unswerving support in good times and bad.

Alan’s support for Brighton Bowmen began before the start of the club’s official existence.  When Falcon Bowmen lost its shooting range at Falmer School in December 2010, he arranged for the archers who had been using that facility to shoot at the Holbrook Club, free of charge, whilst a new venue was being sought.  That act of generosity kept together the core group of people who moved on to St Aubyns School in the guise of Brighton Bowmen at the beginning of February 2011.  From thereon he maintained a keen interest in the club’s fortunes and, when the indoor range at St Aubyns became unavailable, he welcomed the transfer of our WA 18 tournaments to the Holbrook Club from November 2013.  Following his passing, little thought was necessary to arrive at the decision to rename our annual November WA 18 tournament in his memory.

The 1st Alan Ruby Memorial Tournament will take place at the Holbrook Club in Horsham on the weekend of 31st October and 1st November 2015.  The target lists have been published and can be downloaded by clicking this link.

All three sessions on Saturday 31st October are full.  There are, however, a handful of places available on Sunday 1st November.  If you would like to join us on that date, an entry form can be downloaded from this link.

We look forward to seeing everyone next weekend.
