Previously owned equipment for sale

October 12th, 2019

We don’t usually do this, however it is also unusual that an archer we know passes away in a young age.
The list of equipment below is being sold by the bereaved parents.

In the first instance please contact Philip van Buren, SCAA President, and friend of the family on archeryleaders@gmail.com as the go-between. 

All this gear is for sale ideally as a ‘job-lot’ but offers for individual items will be considered. Please respect the feelings of the parents when making them realistic offers.

The tournament was shot as a single detail, so it was unhurried with everyone on their way home at a very reasonable time. Saturday had been planned to suit Novice and Intermediate Archers, and some did take part, but not as many as hoped. But it was great to see the ones who did taking on their first ‘real’ tournament. The weather was windy on Saturday, overcast and showery at the start but turning warm and bright, Sunday was dry and sunny with a light wind.
Special thanks to all the Volunteers, including …
Set-out of range layout: Dave Webster, Rod Brown
Equipment fabrication: Chris Chedzoy, Kevin Doswell
Placing Targets and arranging the layout of the field on Friday : Geri Barnden, Tony Jerome, Helen Butcher, Richard Bennett, Nick Lea, Andras Tokes, Ben Green, Kevin Lambie, Graham Stevens
Before, during and after the Shoot: Bob and Brenda New, Rowena Berterelli, Roo Williamson, András Tőkés, Philip Van Buren, Rod Brown, Charles Poland, Mark Worsfold, Geri Barnden, Richard Bennett, Keith Cross

Sussex Juniors came out on top at the 3-way Match at Woking between Surrey, Kent and Sussex. Petra Ginman who was Team Captain also acted as Team Manager, and reports that the combined-bowstyle Junior team came out on top, with all the Senior Bowstyles ending in Second Place.

Terry White

May 28th, 2019

It is extremely sad to report the death of SCAA Vice-President Terry White, one of Sussex Archery’s greatest supporters over a remarkable span of sixty years. During that time Terry founded two Clubs in the Hastings area, and was Sussex Team Manager and a SCAA committee member for many years, eventually becoming Chairman, and was always a great innovator and encourager of archers, young and old. The funeral will be at Hastings Crematorium on Tuesday June 4th at 2 pm, and more details and a proper obituary will be posted here soon.
We’re sure Terry’s many friends in Archery will join together in sympathy with Pam, Trevor, Tyler and all Terry’s family.

Best of British

May 12th, 2019

The new All-British 3-D Field Championships held just over the Border in Scotland turned out to be All-Sussex when it came to Barebow Champions.
Adele McPeake and Jason Meehan swept the board, taking home the Ladies and Gents trophies. Both archers are members of The High Weald club in the far east of the county, and Adele is organising the Sussex 3-D Championships, to be held at Etchingham on 15th and 16th June.

At a more local level, Regional, not National, Nicola Curtis of Adur Valley Archers was the winner of Longbow Day at the Southern Counties Archery Meeting on 14th May
