Held-Fast ! – Covid-19 brings Archery at a standstill

March 24th, 2020

When an archer calls out ‘FAST!’ it means ‘Hold Fast!’ and shooting must stop immediately, which is what we’ve had to do. All Archery Club and County Association activity has stopped as part of the national effort to bring the Coronavirus under control, and is likely to stay that way until June at the earliest. That also means all Beginners Lessons and Archery Tasters are on hold Nation-wide until the end of the crisis.

None of the planned County Tournaments have been cancelled yet as the first isn’t until mid July, but a number of earlier events have been wiped out:-  the County team-building day in April, the Match vs Hampshire in May and the Personal Development Workshops (which will be postponed until we get the all-clear).

Everything is subject to being changed, depending on how things develop. News will be posted here as it comes in. We hope you all keep well and we’re all looking forward to getting outdoors again before too long.

Planning for 2020: Some proposals and Open Discussion about how Sussex Clubs and SCAA can work together this year to respond to interest in the sport prompted by the Tokyo Olympics, including co-ordinating Taster and Have-A-Go events and setting up a programme of events to engage Juniors and Novice Archers and encourage them to join in more of the activities going on around the County. The focus being on making the various branches of the sport more accessible and interesting so that intermediate archers will discover more aspects of Archery to capture their interest.

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
