November 2023

As we move to the conclusion of this year, just to bring our interested website friends up to date with Mountain Archers, a brief review of the year.

We have continued to grow in members and although we have improved in our gender equality we are still not at 50/50, which is our aim. We have noticed a change in our Beginners Groups in terms of an increase in family groups, which is also great to see. Archery can be an activity/sport for families! We are seeing a change in the demography of our new participants – single parent families, younger female interest and others, joining current  families and single purpose competitive archers.

We have been supported in our growth and encouragement of these individuals and groups by assistance that must be acknowledged: Firstly the Department of Sport and Recreation which has assisted with grants to support this outreach. Our local member, Trish Doyle MP has encouraged and supported these efforts. Bendigo Bank at Katoomba has also continued to support specific projects at the Club. The collaboration we receive from members of the team at Parks, Sports Grounds and Recreation at Blue Mountains City Council is both practical and constant. The Central Mountains Men’s Shed has assisted with building our target stands. Also, our local Woolworths, have contributed towards special days of competition and social events. Special thanks to you all!

We thank all our members who have made this year the success it has been, and look forward to continuing to provide a very practical recreational, sporting and social outlet for our Blue Mountains Community. We have plans to both consolidate and continue our growth for next year.

We wish you all a great holiday season a safe and successful New Year!
