Albion Match against Plumpton

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

The first Albion match this year ended in a win for Plumpton, 2092 to 1804.
The weather was pretty horrible, with heavy showers on and off from the start and after 6 dozen, we decided to abandon the match, because of prolonged heavy rain and rumbles of thunder. The adjustments for compound and barebow were reduced to -66 and +120, as only 6 of the 9 dozen arrows were shot and the final team scores were as follows :-
Plumpton –
Alan 550 (C), Martin 524 (C), Dave 512 (C), Steve 506 (R)
Ditchling –
John 471 (BB), Bob 463 (R), Ben 453 (R), Taff 417 (R)

Lets hope we do better against Worthing next month and that the weather is much better too.

Monday, April 25th, 2011

The Selby League starts again in May and for those that don’t know, Recurve Teams (3 archers) and Compound Teams (2 archers), shoot a Short Metric and Longbow Teams (2 archers) shoot a National. We have 1 Compound Team in division 1, 2 Recurve in divisions 6 and 11 and 1 Longbow in division 6. The proposed dates for shooting each month will be put on the shooting calendar, but I’ll also tell everyone over the field. As with the winter postals, everyone can shoot the round with the highest scoring archers being picked for the teams. The Short Metric is 3dozen @ 50m, 3dozen@30m on an 80cm face and The National is 4doz @ 60yds, 2dozen @ 50yds on a 122cm face.

The first match will be on sunday May 15th, starting about 9.45am, so please be over the field by 9.0 to 9.15am, to help set up.

Albion League 2011

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Ditchling are in Division 2 again this year and will be shooting against Worthing and Plumpton. All three clubs are in contact, so suitable dates should be known shortly, with one match being at home and one away. If available dates do prove to be a problem, because of the number of other shooting commitments within the clubs, then it may be that a 3-way match could be held.
