April-May

As a certain car commercial used to say “oh what a feeling!!?”

After the last couple of years with Covid and then (now) La Niña rains coupled with our aggravated climate situation, I know how we’re all ‘feeling’ – “when will our outdoor Archery to be back to ‘normal’?”

Blue Mountains City Council has been proactive in attempting to protect the region’s sports grounds and so we’ve complied with the prolonged ‘no activity’ at Browntown Oval. But things have been happening at the Club:

The best news to share is that Bendigo Bank (Katoomba) has responded to our application and our made a sponsorship grant to the Club. This has enabled us to order additional targets and stands. The timing couldn’t be better as our new members are finishing their Beginners Course and will now be joining the line and our activities. There are no plans for another course in the near future. We will be displaying Bendigo Bank’s Logo here on the website, on newsletters and at the Club to acknowledge both their interest in their local community and our gratitude.

We’ll be back as soon as Council reopens the Oval. Members will receive a confirmation email. To be honest, the weather for the next few months, as we move into winter, looks unsettled, so be prepared for some further interruptions.

Congratulations to Andy Betts who came away with a silver medal at ANSW Field Championships held recently at Armidale Archers in the Veteran Barebow Recurve. Well done Andy! The Australian Open is coming up and we wish Andy well!

For any, and all, information on the Club: secmountainarchers@gmail.com or call into Browntown Oval Sunday Mornings to check us out.
