Frostbite shoot goes ahead despite wet ground conditions
The annual Frostbite competition took place on Sunday 27th December 2020 at Altcar. It was so wet we had to shoot “the wrong way” on D range.
Fifteen brave souls turned up to shoot 3 dozen arrows barebow at 30m using indoor target faces.
As the use of the troop shelter was not allowed because of covid (hence no refreshments), it was back to the cars for Graham to add up the scores to determine the prizewinners.
Harry (on the right) took the silver medal and Jimmy took the bronze.
Paul (pictured centre) was the winner of the 2020 Frostbite shoot and took home the trophy.
It was good to get out shooting again after the enforced covid layoff.
First and only beginners of 2020
Saturday 25th January was the third week of HEA’s first beginners course of the year and certificate day for the 10 course attendees.
During the three Saturday sessions, the beginners were instructed in the basics of barebow and freestyle archery.
In the third session, the beginners had a go at shooting and scoring in competition when they took part in a team tournament for chocolate prizes.
After presentation of certificates, the trainee archers rounded off the session with the ever popular burst-the-balloons free-for-all.
