Membership Fees

Following the announcement last week of the cessation of all shooting until further notice, concerns were raised regarding the payment of membership fees which will shortly become due.

Your committee have taken the decision to defer payment of membership fees until September the 1st with a review of the situation at that time or earlier should world health conditions improve.

We propose that members who have already paid fees will be able to carry this payment forward from the date of recommencement of shooting for a full year.

Having had extended conversations with Archery GB this morning, the next subject for discussion will be regarding what payment is expected for AGB and SCAS fees later this year. When we have clearer indicators from them, we will be in touch.

Sway Bowmen Archery Club Coronavirus Statement

With immediate effect and for an indefinite period and in line with Archery GB and government guidlines, all archery activity will cease at the club grounds.

For clarities sake this means:

  • No beginners course
  • No Saturday/Wednesday meetings
  • No target days
  • No social gatherings
  • No club tournaments
  • No Mushroom Shoot
  • No individual shooting visits
  • No committee meetings
  • No AGM

The only access to the field will be for maintenance purposes and this under strict guidelines.

Your committee propose that as there will be no AGM, the existing officers tenure be rolled forward for another 12 months to allow for effective continuity with any additional new officers added to the committee and confirmed to membership as matter of course.

This current position will be reviewed on a regular basis to coincide with Archery GB and Government guidance.

The club is financially in a sound position and is well placed to manage itself through this emergency.

We find ourselves in extraordinary times and we must ensure that as club members and individuals we abide by these conditions to ensure the ongoing health of the club and our members.

Should you have any questions or require clarifications on any of the above please do not hesitate in contacting a committee member - remember, seek clarification before taking any actions or making assumptions.

Finally, to all of you - best wishes and keep safe.

Shoot for Gold, March 2020

I held the March draw yesterday evening at the last indoor session and you came up with the lucky numbers. Ophelia Clarke drew the balls again.

GOLD (£25) ………………………………………… Chris Clarke (24)

RED (£15) …………………………………………… Jerry Branch (19)

BLUE (£10) …………………………………………. Ian Andrews (53)

Congratulations to one and all and best of luck in the outdoor season shortly. And a reminder that the April draw will be the annual BONANZA draw which will be held at the AGM next month. There is still time to join up before the draw, although time is short, and have a chance to win double prize money. It has been done before; ask Chris Southall who won the Bonanza at his first attempt two years ago.

Shoot for Gold, February 2020

I held the February draw at indoor shooting yesterday evening and you were the lucky winners, although I think you already know as you were present. Ophelia Clarke drew the balls.

GOLD (£25) ……………………………….. Richard Oldfield (9)

RED  (£15) ………………………………….. Bryan Garney (11)

BLUE (£10) …………………………………. Clive Lane (50)

Tony Silver will give you your cheques if he has not already done so.

Finally, I had intended to hold the BONANZA draw this month at the AGM; however as the AGM is now due to be held in April I will hold it then. The March draw will be held at the last indoor session next week.
