Norfolk Archery Association
Well, it is summer, so that means great weather for shooting, long evenings… oh, that doesn’t quite sound right…
Its not been the best of weather, but there have been plenty of things happening, and there is more to come as summer transitions into Autumn.
We’d also like to thank all those of you who were part of the great Norfolk turnout at the East Anglian Championships last weekend. A report and results will be available on the website soon.
We also understand lots of clubs have successful induction courses underway, with Wymondham in particular having seen a massive uptake in participation on their courses this year, so well done to them for helping get more people in the sport!
First up, there is the Norfolk Archery Association County and Open Championships.
The shoot is a WRS WA 1440 hosted by City of Norwich Archers on 17th September. Want to enter but can’t shoot a full 1440? don’t worry, Metric rounds are available so contact the organizers and they’ll help you find the right round.
Still time to get your entry in!
Entry Form – Current Entrants.
We’d also ask anyone who won a trophy at this event last year to please get in touch and confirm you will be returning the trophy. You can contact to organiser by clicking here
Also coming up in September is the next County Committee Meeting. This will be on 13th September at 7.30pm and is hosted by Fakenham Bowmen in the Lancaster Room at the Gallows Sports Centre at the Fakenham Racecourse.
All members of the county are welcome to attend and have a say on how the county is run, and we always encourage more County members to get involved.
Hingham Bowmen will once again be hosting their £2 round. This is a great day, a relaxed competition and more about the fun of archery than the pressure of scores.
The shoot will be on the 3rd September.

For those who enjoy long walks and small flags why not try your hand at the County Clout! Hosted as ever by Fakenham Bowmen as part of their annual Clout Weekend on 7/8th October. The weekend is very fun, and a different form of Archery to what we normally do so is well worth a look. If you haven’t shot Clout before don’t worry, Fakenham will be holding some Clout practice sessions nearer the time.

If fun is your thing then why not come along and watch the Beiter Hit-Miss Tournament on 15th October. Returning for a 3rd year to UEA, this shoot is always a spectacle, and promises to be a brilliant shoot again this year. Despite technical difficulties, the shoot was filled within 3 hours and there are already several teams on the waiting list.
