Chairman’s April Exec Com Digest

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Following the EGM on 30th March the committee met on 11th April to discuss a number of pressing items. I was pleased to be able to welcome a number of new members to the committee, which is now almost at full strength, and wish them a successful year in office.

One of our first duties was to co-opt Maggie Burford as County Junior Representative. She will liaise with Terry White, the County Junior Team Manger, to provide projects that will raise the profile of the Junior Team and county junior archery in general.

Final arrangements were put in place for the organisation of the first county match of the year. This was against Hampshire and held at the Crawley Archery Club grounds on 17th April and, for the first time that I can remember, was Record Status. Although we did not win on this occasion, there were a large number of Rose Award and county record claims and the day was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved.

See the report from Doreen Cannon, the Senior Team Manager, for full details.

I would like to add my thanks to that of Doreen to the small work party who put in so much effort to ensure that the match was successful. Well done, you were magnificent.

We have another match against Essex on 26th June. I wish all our archers good shooting and look forward to a win this time.

At the beginning of the year it was looking as if we would not be able to hold the County Championships as we were not able to fill the position of Tournament Organiser. I am delighted to be able to announce that Maggie Burford has agreed to take on this task and the Championship Weekend will be held on 9th & 10th July. I wish Maggie every success in this venture and ask that as many of our members as possible will be able to provide help over the weekend to ensure that our premier event is a great success.

Briefly, other items discussed included the SCAS/SCAA Indoor championships next year at the K2, the 200 Club, (please consider joining if you are not already a member), the Albion League, the publishing of county records and certificates, the ranking system and the provision of storage for the county’s equipment. There will be more news on these items as we progress.

Finally, I wish you all a good season & look forward to meeting you around the county.

Terry Maskell.
