Need To Know This Week

Calling All Barebowers!

Are you new to shooting barebow? Do you want to learn essential techniques from some of our best barebow archers?
John Way and Kerry Hoole are offering a two-session series for newbies to barebow – the first focused on technique, and the second on tuning and equipment. Even better, all proceeds will go towards supporting the MGAC archers and managers representing NZ at the World Field Champs.
You must register to participate – go to Archery OSA  here.

AGM: is the date in your diary?

Saturday 27 July, 1pm, Mount Albert YMCA, mezzanine room
At the AGM we will elect the officers and committee for 2024/25, and we’d love some new faces and fresh energy. Talk to any current committee member to find out more.

Lend a hand with upcoming winter tournaments

Can you help with one of our winter tournaments on 13 July and 24 August?
– Help to manage matchplay results (if you’re not competing)
– Make sure the clubroom is looking flash before the event
– Help check over our targets and supplies a few weeks before the first event
– Run the BBQ or help with providing food for sale

Email or talk to Kelly Atkinson to let us know what you can do.
