PROVISIONAL TARGET LIST AS AT 5th OCTOBER 4pm
Saturday 19th August saw Belvoir Archers host the 11th Summer Windsor.
it was a challenging day with the BBC telling us it would be sunny with a mild breeze, but the local weather gods didn’t listen to the BBC and made if a challenging right to left cross wind all day.
A big thankyou to our sponsor, Custom Built Archery
That was a busy weekend for Belvoir Archers with 14 bosses out on Saturday for our delayed 2023 World Record Status WA720 with non record status Crossbow 50m. It was an overcast day with some sunny spells, and a tricky Right to Left wind during the day. Well done to all archers and arbalists who turned out to shoot and stuck with it for the day.
Sunday was a return to the field for a World Record Status National Crossbow Federation tournament with 8 bosses. We had 12 arbalists competing across the field. Again, it was an overcast day with some sunny spells, and a stronger wind than the Saturday giving us a lot more to think about.
Well done to all arbalists who shot.
The WRS Double WA720 planned for 15th July 2023 is unfortunately postponed until Saturday 29th July 2023
this is due to a safety concern due to severe weather warning being put out by the Met Office, we will be expecting 40mph+ winds, rain and lightening during the day.

The shoot went well and finished early, with everyone off the field by 4-30 (apart from me who got caught in the rain storm that appeared as everyone drove away – my tent is still drying out in the container!!)

Belvoir Archers have been watching the Covid Rates and also the vaccination programme. With the majority of over 18s not having their second jab until mid September 2021 and the threat of the new variations of Covid-19, we have decided that it would be safer for us to postpone our shoots.
with this in mind, our updated schedule will be
WRS WA720 17th July 2021 moved to 16th July 2022 (awaiting approval from AGB with the WRS status move)
Summer Windsor 21st August 2021 moved to 20th July 2022 — UKRS removed this year
Winter Windsor 18th September 2021 moved to 17th September 2022
entry forms will be available later in the year
Due to the Covid Pandemic, we have rescheduled our 2021 tournaments to later in the year so that we can get away from the winter threat and hopefully more people are vaccinated.
WA720 moved from 10th April to 17th July
Summer Windsor moved from 17th July to 21st August — UKRS removed this year
Winter Windsor planned for 18th September
The 2 & 3 shoot will be under review
These dates may change depending on how the year pans out, but in the mean time, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in the summer on an archery field
Due to the Covid-19 virus, Belvoir Archers have sadly taken the decision to cancel all of our 2020 tournaments.
we have moved our Record Status over to 2021, so the dates of our next tournaments will be
10th April 2021 Double WA720 (50m and 70m) World Record Status

Saturday 20th July saw Belvoir Archers hold their 9th Summer Windsor.
It was an interesting day, sunny spells, heavy rain, light breeze, hurricane force winds. The shoot had to be abandoned at change of distance from 50 to 40 yards (after 6 dozen) due to Thunder and Lightning in the local area. We had already had two periods of heavy rain where the judges held the shoot and sent everyone for cover.
Thankyou to everyone who came and stayed for the day, to our Judges Mario Stankovic and Janet Short, our Lord Paramount (and birthday boy) Peter Sanderson and all the club members who worked hard to make the day go well.
