The home of Essex and Suffolk County Archery Association for Archery GB registered clubs & promoting archery in Essex and Suffolk.
AGB are running a number of Webinars between now and Christmas to promote all sorts of things which might be useful to archers and clubs.
Details have been published on the SCAS Website at https://scasarchery.org.uk/agb-online-webinars
The Scores from Essex for the October match of the SCAS Inter Counties League have been published on the Tournament & Records -> Leagues -> SCAS inter Counties League page.
Sharon has asked that anyone who managed to shoot a Portsmouth before Lockdown enter it into the system using the form on that page for November.
The organisers of the ECAA Clouts have change to Clare Felgate and David Hilton.
They can still be contacted through the email address on the Governance -> Officers page.
The records for the Girls Barebow have been updated and can be seen on the Tournaments & Records -> Records -> Junior Records page
I hope you are all keeping well. I have heard from the organisers of the SCAS Postal League and it is going to run again this year.
Due to the start of the pandemic in March, there has been trouble getting the awards sorted for last year but these are still in hand and will be sent in due course.
For this season only, the Portsmouth rounds can be shot both indoors and outdoors, there is no differential
It is also permitting scores for the whole month, 1st to the end of the month, all scores must be submitted by the first day of the following month
The scores will be for the best four months out of the six between October and March
Therefore can everybody start submitting scores via the page on ECAA Website which is below and we will see if we can do as well as last year
I currently do not have full details as to how the teams are to be made up but I believe it will once again need to contain at least 1 lady or 1 gentleman in the teams of 4.
The Junior scores have not yet been finalised as to how they are handicapped but I will know soon
Happy Shooting & Kind regards
I am really sad to share with you the news that one of our most cherished members has passed away.
According to his family, Harry (Grove) died peacefully at 03:20 Sunday morning.
Those of you who knew Harry also knew that he had been ill for sometime and had to, reluctantly, give up archery but still popped down the club.
Harry was a most valued member of the club and was made our very first Honorary Member. This was in recognition for all he had done for the club and its members using his woodworking prowess to the benefit of us all. He was also much loved for just being Harry and the club will miss him deeply.
According to my records, he joined the club in 2007 and would have been 86 in December.
Our thoughts are with his wife Carole and with all his family and friends at this terribly sad time.
Covid19 has impacted on the way funerals are carried out and a restriction on the number of attendees. I have no details of the funeral at this time so can't say if any of will be able to attend as much as we would like to.
Journey well Harry.
