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.
not to forget our Sponsors, Custom Built Archery for their continued sponsorship of our tournaments. Continue reading

The Lord Paramount for the day was Chris Joyce, Chairman of Belvoir Archers, and our Judges were Mario Stankovic and Christopher Lowe (on his last formal judging duty in Belvoir Archers before the family depart for their new lives in Australia in January).
Everyone shot on our new foam layered targets, funded by recent training venue grant by Sport England. Some Regional and County records were broken or equalled, which means more work for Sue Haynes our County and Regional Records Officer.

The summer season is all but over, the nights are drawing in and the wind is getting chilly. The field will still be available during the winter for outdoor shooting if you so wish. I would not advise shooting if it is below freezing as it may damage the structure of your bows – especially the longbow archers amongst us. Continue reading

Simon Holmes did try to convert his compound into a weather vane by throwing it up the field to see which way the wind was blowing.. Continue reading
