  • Outdoor Shooting - Ipswich School Playing Fields

    Sunday 08 March 2020 08:30 - 12:00

    For those mad enough to shoot outdoors through the winter!

  • Indoor Tournament

    Sunday 08 March 2020 13:00 - 18:00

    Indoor Club Tournament 2020

    Sunday 8th March 2020

    Assembly (ready to shoot) at 13:15, Sighters at 13:30

     
    Once again we are shooting the unique BA 720.
    For those new to the club, it isn't the British Airways flight between London Heathrow and Zurich, its an indoor round inveted for Blue Arrows, by Blue arrows and works as follows:

    It may sound strange but we shoot an outdoor round - Indoors!  How? you may well ask? This is what we will be doing.

    As you know when we shoot a round outdoors, targets are at different distances. Starting with the longest first and getting shorter as the round goes on. The target face therefore is at its smallest at the longer distances and bigger as it gets closer.

    We can replicate that indoors by putting on different size faces all at the same distance. Small target faces first and then moving to bigger ones as the round progresses.
    This is how it will work:

    2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on a 40cm face.
    2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on a 60cm face.
    2 dozen arrows (shot in 3's) at 20yds on an 80cm face.

    There will be breaks in between as target faces are changed just like outdoors when bosses are moved.

    Everyone can reach 20yds and will be a great challenge on the smaller faces but it will become easier as the faces increase in size. Or will it???

    It will be shot in a normal competition environment so will give those that have not experienced an indoor comp before a chance to get familiar with how they work.

    The Hall is open at 12:00 with assembly at 1.15pmThere will be one round of sighters at 13:30 and shooting will start immediately afterwards.

    Any volunteers to arrive from 12:00 to set up would be very much appreciated. 
     
    Online entry hasn't yet opened but save the date and you'll here more nearer the time.

  • Indoor Club Night - Northgate Sports Centre

    Thursday 26 March 2020 18:00 - 20:00

  • Head 2 Head - Grand Final

    Thursday 26 March 2020 19:30 - 20:00

    Grand final - Just to add to the pressure, we'll all stop and watch!  Heckling is encouraged, especially if Alan or Ade make the final.

  • Moving Night!

    Thursday 26 March 2020 20:00 - 21:00

    We have to move the kit to the field ready for summer outdoor shooting.  All help to load trailors at Northgate and/or unload at a dark Ipswich School field would be appreciated.

    As you can guess, there won't be any indoor shooting on Sunday 29th as the targets will have gone and the sports centre won't allow us to blu-tack targets to the nets.
