Portsmouth Progress Awards

Portsmouth badges are Back!

During the Outdoor Season we have 252 badges, but indoors we have Portsmouth Badge awards. These are personal achievement badges. As archers achieve higher scores at this round, they can claim a badge for each step they take. These start at a score of 300 and increase in increments of 25 to the maximum score of 600.

They cost £2.50 each and can be traded in if this is wished at no extra cost.

In respect of the Portsmouth Badges ONLY ONE score need be submitted per badge application. Usual shooting rules apply – first shoot of the day, two lots of 3 sighter arrows, scoresheets properly recorded and witnessed. They can be claimed from tournaments, or at normal shooting sessions at the Indoor Unit.

For the brave amongst you, we also will be awarding Frostbite badges for the outdoor Winter Postal round.

Nik has a tracking sheet for the badge awards, and will endeavour to keep up with your scores, but please use the sheets in the unit to confirm when you’ve broken your personal best score and wish to claim your badge.

AGM Stuff – Version 2!

Dear all, 

As promised, here’s the minutes of last years AGM so you have every opportunity of reading them prior to this year’s meeting.

Also attached is a provisional agenda. If you have any agenda items please let me know before June 15th. As this is an AGM only items notified to us are discussed, and there is no “Any Other Business”.

I have also attached details of the John Haines Trophy so you can have a think about who you might wish to nominate. Completed nomination forms can be put in the letterbox we will put up tomorrow.

Also on here is a rather better version of the nomination form. We will be putting a letterbox in the store at the field for any completed nomination forms. Again, could you please get these in by 15th June please. If any additional agenda items are received, I will send out a revised agenda a couple of days before the meeting.

It’s come around again, it’s almost AGM time.

The committee has fixed the date of the meeting as Tuesday the 23rd of June at 7 for 7.30.

It’s your club, so come and tell us what is going well for you, what isn’t going well for you, and what you want from it for the future. All constructive suggestions are welcome.

All committee positions are up for re-election, and a nomination form is attached so if you feel like having a go at one of them, all you need is a proposer and a seconder who both need to be full members of the club. Please send any completed nomination forms to Sharon on, or pass them on by hand. Please send any agenda items to the same address. Nominations and agenda items need to be received by the 15th June to be included. Also, please let Sharon know if you can’t make it to the meeting.

During the evening, there will also be the annual vote for the John Haines trophy at the AGM for the person who has acted in the way best becoming an archer throughout the year.

The committee roles are:-

  • Chairman
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Child Protection officer
  • Field Archery officer
  • Trophies Officer
  • Tournaments Organiser
  • Webmaster and Publicity

Over the last few months some committee members have been covering more than one role so it would be good to spread the load amongst new people, and to bring fresh ideas into the club.

A provisional agenda will be circulated shortly before the meeting.
Do come and contribute your ideas to the running of the club.
