After a damp day on the Saturday, the Beginners Championship H2H’s finished in nice sunny conditions on the Sunday afternoon. The gold medal was won on a tense one arrow shoot off; as Adrienn nailed a 10, the crowd seemed to gasp and cheer at the same time, and even though Dan also struck gold, it wasn’t quite enough to claim the top spot. What a fitting way to finish off a fantastic weekend.

Medals

  • Gold – Adrienn
  • Silver – Dan
  • Bronze – Rich
  • 4th – Carole

Awards

  • Highest 12 arrow score – Ian
  • Most improved archer – Emma

Yet again, there was a special delivery of coffee and homemade ginger cake(this time) at around 1400 on the Sunday, which kept the instructors energised for the last 90 minutes. Thank you for the supplies.

Dates

Our outdoor club sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays beginning April 2018.  Dates and times can be found on our Club Diary

Please assist with setting up and taking down the range. There is a range safety layout document in the storage container. Our outdoor range assessment document can be found here .

Important note: our range is used by the students and staff of Longhill High School and by other sports clubs.  Shooting, therefore, must end 30 minutes before dusk to ensure that all equipment is removed from the range and stored securely in the container.  This also provides time for the retrieval of lost arrows.

In the event that a lost arrow cannot be found, the staff at the Longhill Sports Centre must be informed before members leave the campus.  Additionally, the owner of the lost arrow must return to the field the next morning no later than 7.00 am to find it.

Sports Centre staff should be notified of the outcome of the following morning’s search no later than 9.00 am on that day.

Guests

Regardless of your age, experience or skill level, you are welcome to shoot with us as a guest.

It is probably worth your while to contact us before you turn up to check that space is available. Send an e-mail to secretary@brightonbowmen.org.uk.

Target fees are £5, which must be paid before you set up your equipment. For insurance purposes, you must also have a current Archery GB (GNAS) membership card or a temporary card provided by your club secretary.

Safeguarding, Range Safety and Rules of Shooting

It is the responsibility of everyone present at club target days, tournaments and courses to ensure that archery at the Longhill Sports Centre is practiced in a safe and controlled manner.

To ensure this, club members, guests, parents and carers present whilst shooting is taking place should familiarise themselves with the following documents:

If you’re not sure about something, please ask for advice.

Please note: our range is used by the students and staff of Longhill High School and by other sports clubs.  Shooting, therefore, must end 30 minutes before dusk to ensure that all equipment is removed from the range and stored securely in the container.  This also provides time for the retrieval of lost arrows.

To assist in finding lost arrows, two metal detectors and three rakes can be found in the container.  If, however, a lost arrow cannot be found, the staff at the Longhill Sports Centre must be informed before members leave the campus.  In addition, the owner of the lost arrow must return to the field the next morning no later than 7.00 am to find it.

Sports Centre staff should be notified of the outcome of the following morning’s search no later than 9.00 am.
