The first piece of news I have for you is that Ken Croucher has stepped down as Secretary and Treasurer of the Club. The Committee would like to thank Ken for all his hard work and his steady hand guiding us through the last couple of years. I am pleased to tell you that Ken leaves us in good health, as far as shooting is concerned there are no changes. Ken will continue as a shooting member and you will see him on the shooting line enjoying his new found, and well earned, free time.
The Committee have appointed me as Secretary pro-tem, that is until the next election. Similarly Carl Allen has been appointed Treasurer pro-tem until the next election. As a committee, we are happy that the essential jobs are being covered but if you want to help out, then please let us know. You will be pleased to hear that Ken is still willing to offer advise to Carl and me as we settle into our new temporary roles.
Who is doing what?
Gren Williams - Coaching Officer, Equipment Officer and Child Protection Officer
Carl Allen - Membership Secretary, Records Officer and Treasurer pro-tem
Hari Bakhshi - Webmaster and Secretary pro-tem
Valerie Williamson - President
On to shooting. The outdoor season has started, the field has been mowed, new target faces have been put up and one of the bosses has been changed, thanks to Gren for doing all of this work. There is some additional work required and we are organising a work party for 12PM on Saturday 22 April. We need as many people as possible to turn up and help clear the line of weeds. We also need help in putting up a new boss. Please turn up at 12PM on Saturday and bring a spade! If there are enough of us, this should take no more than an hour.
Over the next few months, the Committee would like to put some focus on the Juniors in the Club. Ideally, we would like to develop a Junior Section with their own representative on the committee.
Finally, we have a Beginners course running on 20 May 2017, it is up on our website if anyone wants to book.
Please use the links on the club website if you would like an introduction to Newport Pagnell Archers, whether at one of our Have a Go or Beginners sessions, or if you would like to join as a member. We pride ourselves in welcoming newcomers to the sport and to the club.
