THA 90

Here are the results of the 20th March 2022 NFAS Open Shoot

Thank you to all of the 81 archers that came to our lovely Toad Hollow woodlands and enjoyed the course set by Tom Farr,   working closey with Tom were Phil Smith and Paul Farr and as usual all the Toads joined in helping in one way or another to make the shoot such a success,  we hope you all had a safe trip and enjoyed the shoot, and the catering which for this shoot Leo and Annie stood in with Bren and they had a great time running the catering stop,  Leo and Annie are now the official Catering Toads, thank you Leo & Annie for stepping up and enjoying the cooking, you did brilliantly

Unfortunately just before the shoot our woods were hit by the gales that struck the southwest and we had several 50 – 70 foot old pine trees uproot and collapse on part of the course, so assisted by the estate woodsman we jumped in and cleared the paths that were blocked, the buzz of chainsaws was incredinble as The Toads did what they always do when we have a problem, they all joined in and worked hard to get rid of that problem, and that was soon sorted,  as field archers it is always a sad thing when we lose any trees but on inspection the gale has opened up some new shooting lines, so someting good comes out of every set back

The day was very dry and bright, but a cold easterly wind kept everyone moving and warm,  the course was 2×20 3D Targets all from Gamut 3D and included the new bird spider which the archers loved shooting, the archers scores showed that lockdowns and Covid restrictions had meant they surely lacked practice

We all know of the sad happenings in Ukraine, this led to action by Ian & Brendas’ 10 year old granddaughter Faith who spent all of Saturday cooking cakes, scones and cup cakes for selling at the shoot, there was no fixed price for Faiths cooking but everyone who took one made a donation to Faiths Kids in Ukraine Appeal.  Through her hard work she raised ¬£122 during the shoot, previously she also raised ¬£170 selling her cakes at the school

See you all at our next shoot
