New Term, New Year — September 27, 2012

New Term, New Year

Hi everyone! Only a few days to go until things start up again, hope you’re all excited to get back into it, or join us for the first time 🙂

Here’s what we’ll be up to in the next week or so:
Wednesday 3rd Oct, 12:30 – 13:00 Activities showcase in Alex Square; We’ll have a stall set up for prospective members to come meet us, have a look at some equipment and find out more about us

Wednesday 3rd Oct, 16:00 – 19:00 Grad Fair in Barker House Farm; We’ll be promoting ourselves and looking to hopefully recruit some postgraduate students into the LUAC family. Also a chance for returning members to come and pay membership

Thursday 4th Oct, 12:00 – 17:00 Fresher’s Fair in the Great Hall; This is the big one! We’ll have a stall set up for promoting ourselves, recruiting new members, and giving out as much info as we can (expect a lot of flyers!!) Again a perfect chance for returning members to pay their fee (hint hint)

The membership fee for 2012/13 will be £30 for the year, covering cost of all sessions and equipment use as always. For beginner’s the first session will be free so that you can get a taste of it before needing to commit. Also, as of this year it is not necessary to have a purple card to join, you just need your LUSU number which everyone should have already.

The first beginner’s sessions for new members will be on Tuesday 9th Oct (9am-11am) and Friday 12th Oct (7pm-9pm).

For returning members there will be a session on Friday 5th Oct (4pm – 6pm) which will be used to shoot a scoring round so we can where everyone is up to (and gives everyone a fair chance towards team selection)

Phew! That was a lot of text haha. Hope to see you all soon 🙂

Situated right at the end of summer term, the BUCS outdoor championships provide the grande finale for the university archery year. And with one of our best results ever at this level, we certainly did it in style!

Senior team came 6th (Joint highest result in the club’s history!) with the novice team in 11th as the highest placed NEUAL team. Congratulations to everyone for a great performance, despite the awful weather!

And so, the 2011/12 season is over. There have been some great performances throughout, but the highlights surely have to be Roses and NEUAL outdoors. Well done & massive thankyou to all that contributed to such a successful year.
