Archery rounds come in different varieties, varying in distance and the number of ends. To be able to record your score of a round, you will need a score sheet. There is a link to a web site that will create printable score sheets.

Christmas Fun Shoot 2014

A good number of Scarborough Archers members braved the cold weather for the 2014 Christmas Fun Shoot.  Targets this year were Christmas trees and pool balls.   Congratulations to Ian and Jake, winners of the Christmas tree competition, and Catherine and Kit Kat, winners of the pool ball competition.  The morning was rounded off with a Secret Santa shoot off and Derek won the mixed grill in the raffle.
Thanks to Colin and Derek for organizing tea, coffee, mince pies and mulled wine ( for the none shooters )

Bridlington Portsmouth 2014 Tournament

Fifteen members of Scarborough Archers competed in the 2014 Annual Bridlington Portsmouth Tournament.  This is 5 dozen arrows at a distance of 20yds to a 60cm face.
In a strong field of competitors, Scarborough Archers junior member Phil Simms continued with his fine form by winning the trophy and gold medal in the men’s U18 recurve section, and the recurve and longbow teams just missed out on the team trophies.
New members Andy Wiles, George and Wendy Rabnett were competing in their first tournament, and all returned very respectable scores, well done everyone.

Prize Presentation Night

The second Annual Prize Presentation Night was held at Seamer Sports Association on Saturday 11th October 2014.
The evening was a huge success, with over forty members and guests attending the presentation  by Neil Simms of Trophies to the winners and medalists of the four main competitions during the year.

After the presentation, Colin Greenway, on behalf of the members, presented chairman John Naylor with a magnificent book as a token of thanks. Ann Naylor was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers for her support.  John thanked the members for their gifts.

Pie and Peas or Pizza supper was then served, all organized and served by Derek and Cecily Simpson and their assistant Lorraine. Thank you to them.

The evening concluded with Rogers Prize Draw.  There were lots of prizes, including a £50 M&S voucher, a mixed grill, whisky and wine etc.  All proceeds from the draw will go to purchase hedge bushes and trees on the new Osgodby Site

Thank you to all those members and guests who attended the evening and donated prizes for the draw.

Osgodby Field Progress Report

We now have our site protected by security fencing and gates and on Saturday the Scarborough Archers signboards went up. In breezy conditions John and Colin teetered six feet above the ground on rickety step ladders as they fixed the signs to the posts…..watched by a local octogenarian who showed great interest in what was going on.

“When’s it open?”

“We plan to open in the Spring next year”

“Ahh … Is it athletics?”

Bridlington Annual Indoor Tournament

Scarborough Archers were well represented at the Bridlington Annual Indoor Tournament this year with 19 members competing.  Although both the senior recurve and longbow teams just missed out on the team prizes, it was the juniors who shone on the day.   Megan Wilson won the gold medal in the girls under 16 class, James Biggs won the gold medal in the boys under 14 class,  T Jay won silver in the boys under 16 class and Phil Simms won silver in the boys under 18 class.
The round shot was a Portsmouth ( 5 dozen arrows at 20yds ) and was extremely well contested with clubs from York, Hull and Leeds areas.
