We shoot 4doz arrows at the longer distance then 2doz arrows at the shorter distance, all on 122cm target faces. This event will be round 1 of our new Outdoor League, which will be scored on a handicap basis.

Target sessions continue in the gym on alternate Thursday evenings from  April 11th, with Sunday outdoor sessions at Kalbarrie on summer hours (1000-1600) from April 7th now that the better weather is here...!

Our last indoor competition shoot of the 2023/24 winter took place on March 24th at Piddlehinton gym.  We shot a WA25 round, involving 20 three-arrow ends on a 60cm target face (same size as the Portsmouth round face) at 25 metres. Some excellent scores were achieved, and once again a number of archers advanced their Archery GB classification and handicap quests.

 

Our February indoor competition shoot was held on the 25th at Piddlehinton gym again. This time we shot double Bray II rounds, involving two rounds of ten 3-arrow ends, each over 25yds at a 60cm target face, with a snack & refreshment break in between rounds. Good fun was had by all, and more archers achieved Archery GB classifications and/or decreased their indoor handicap values.
