Considering how poorly we shot there must be a lot of red faces out there. Team score sheet
We will be shooting indoors this Sunday due to the poor weather forecast.
West Windsor Archers are holding their May Day Western on Monday 7th May 2018 and there are still places available on the shooting line.

Individual and team medals will be awarded. Click this link for the application form
Recurve, bare bow, longbow, and American Flat bows are welcome but due to a move on the school site we can no longer accept compound bows, and no all carbon arrows.
Unfortunately OOBAC had to cancel the John Rowland Memorial Shoot on Easter Monday due to the weather but have rescheduled it for May Day, 7th May. This is a National round, all distances from 100/80 down to 30/20 and all abilities are welcome.
Additionally on Spring Bank Holiday Monday OOBAC are holding The Spring Cup tournament. This is traditionally Western rounds and again all distances are catered for.
Pre-entry is always preferred but entry is possible on the day.
OOBAC will be holding their John Rowland Memorial Shoot at their New Road Archery Field on 2nd April. OOBAC have the facilities to shoot all distances so can accommodate any of the National Rounds starting at 30 yards right up to 100 yards. They are a friendly club and look forward to seeing old friends again as well as making new ones.
