Burntwood Archers Halloween Shoot

The club held their first Halloween Fun Shoot last weekend (30th October 2016) and what a brilliantly successful and enjoyable event it turned out to be!

With many of our regular archers, supported wonderfully by family and friends, the club took part in a variety of spooky archery related games with spider targets, balloon popping and even witches on broomsticks to shoot at which provided a source of amusement.

It was great to see so many of our members take part in this fun event and judging by the response on the day I think it is safe to say the club will be hosting many more of these themed related shoots in the future.

Pictures can be found on the club Facebook page and links to Facebook can be found on this Home page.

It’s a family affair

Saturday 28th June 2016

Noak Hill Archers hosted their annual Western’s Tournament last Saturday and 4 of our members took part in this event flying the flag for Burntwood Archers.

The Moir family took to the shooting line in 3 different rounds; Long Western, Western and Junior Short Western.

Despite the early drizzle enthusiasms were not dampened as the family received a warm and friendly welcome from club hosts and the other archers at the event. The Archery Gods were certainly smiling down on the day as the rain lifted just as the first arrows were sent down the range.

The Moir’s were all successful on the day with every member taking home a medal. Despite snapping his arrow rest in his first 6 arrows, Ben Moir (10) battled through his round with a very creditable score and secured a bronze medal in the Junior Short National Round. For his persistence and perseverance in the face of adversity Ben also received the Lord Paramount Award on the day. Brother Sam (11) was again so near and yet so far as he followed up his last tournament silver with another silver this time around over the same distance. With only 5 points separating silver and gold Sam deserves many congratulations for another great performance.

Mum, Jo, shot in the Western Round and as the only lady competitor in this class received another gold for her collection!

James took part in the Long Western competition in his first outdoor tournament since taking up the sport. As the results were announced he was very surprised to hear he too secured a gold medal, winning the round by 59 points!

Many congratulations to all the Moir family! Keep up the good work and keep shooting straight!
