Stolen Archery Equipment

Dear All, I would be grateful for your assistance in putting the announcement below on your website and informing your members by others means if appropriate. Hopefully by spreading the word we may be able to trace these items and prevent injury or worse. "Four compound bows and some arrows were stolen from South Wilts AC on the afternoon of Friday 1 Dec 06. Two of the bows were Mathews Genesis 20 lb training bows. One is right handed in red without a sight; the other is left handed in purple with a sight (similar to a Cartel Junior); both have markings on them specific to SWAC. The third bow is 36lb RH compound using York laminated limbs and hoyt energy cams. The riser is of solid design and is dark red / black. It has 'tear drop' string/cable connectors and no sight. The fourth bow is a Barnett Crusader RH 40lb in blue fitted with a blue Cartel sight. Again this bow has identification markings on it. We are concerned that these bows may be in the hands of people with no knowledge or experience of such equipment with the consequent risk of injury to people or animals. If anyone hears of or sees any of these items, please let me know. Alan White, Chairman - 0780 357 1257." I have also sent the announcement to SCAS & HAA as well as our own region, county & some clubs. Thank you in anticipation. Alan White, Chairman SWAC
