AC Delco

Monday, April 1st, 2013

On 30th March, Taff and Petra shot at the annual AC Delco Easter Fita shoot, down near Eastleigh in Hampshire. It was freezing cold and a bit of a wind. Imagine a freezing frostbite lasting four times the usual time! Instead of trophies and medals, the club awards Easter Eggs for this shoot. They are a friendly club and previous archers from Ditchling have shot at their ground. The sad part was that this shoot was the last ever shoot on their ground which has been purchased by developers. I am sure we as a club wish them well in securing a permanent home which is on the cards.

Petra was 1st

Taff was 3rd

BA Postal League 2012/13

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

This year’s Winter Postal League starts in November and we have entered 2 Recurve and 1 Compound Team in both the Frostbite and Portsmouth Leagues, as well as a Junior Team in the Portsmouth League.
Frostbites are shot at Ditchling on the first Sunday in the month, unless the weather is particularly horrible, in which case we try the next available Sunday. They are open to all Ditchling members and are a 3 dozen round, at 30 metres on an 80cm face. The 3 highest Compound scores form the Compound Team, the 3 highest Recurve scores form Recurve A and next 3 highest scores form Recurve B.
Portsmouths are shot at Ardingly and are 5 dozen arrows at 20 yds on a 60 cm face.
As there is only space for 5 bosses, if more than 20 people come along, it may have to be on a first come basis, unless some are willing to step down to allow the better archers to shoot, in order to get the best possible score.
The dates for the Portsmouths are :- Nov.11, Dec.9, Jan.20, Feb.10 and Mar.24, which is also the day of the club’s Indoor Championships.
If you require any more information, contact Bob or one of the other Committee Members.
