Welcome to the Norfolk Archery Association Autumn Newsletter
Well, the weather has turned cold, the nights have drawn in and the clocks have changed… It must be the start of indoor season.
We have lots of great things happening over the winter months, most of which is indoors, though for a few mad clubs there will still be outdoor shooting – looking at you Fakenham and Grey Goose with your Frostbites!
First off, important news. The Norfolk Archery Annual General Meeting will be on the 17th November, hosted by Fakenham Bowmen at the Gallows Sports Centre. All members of the county are welcome to attend, have their say and get involved, including standing for election to the County Committee.
If you have any items for the agenda please contact Jason Mills, County Secretary, on firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
Before delving into the upcoming events, a moment to shout about how good archery can be. The Beiter Hit-Miss Tournament was held at the Sportspark in Norwich once again, and whilst attendance was a little down on previous years due to its clash with the world championships, the event still raised £1000 for charity – and Nelson’s Journey, the organisers chosen charity, were incredibly pleased to receive this money – well done to all involved!
The Fakenham Indoor WA18m is just around the corner, and entries are rolling in. This is always a great shoot in one of the best venues in the county, and also makes a great warm up for the National Indoors which is the following week!
If you want to enter, head over to their website and enter online, or download the entry form.

Norfolk Bowmen are hosting their annual Stafford Shoot once again. The shoot will be on 14th Jan at Easton and Otley College. A different challenge at 30m indoors, come along and try your hand a t a bit of distance but without the wind and weather!
Hingham Bowmen will be hosting the next Norfolk County Shoot. The County and Open Indoors will be held on 4th February, and we are sure this will be a fun event given Hingham’s track record of exciting shoots.
The shoot is already seeing plenty of entries coming in, so enter soon to avoid missing out!

City of Norwich Archers have put a bid into the Aviva Community Fund in the hopes of securing a grant to improve their equipment. Currently they are struggling to provide sufficient equipment for their beginners and improvers, and need help to try and get the £1000 grant from the fund. If you have a spare 2 minutes, please go to the fund and vote for them – no cost and it’ll really help the club!
