Hello everybody! We hope you’re all settling in at Lancaster and are enjoying freshers week. We’re running things a little differently this year with our fresher training sessions.
The first training session for freshers will be Friday of the first week of term (the week after freshers week) we hope to see a lot of you there but we ask you to be patient with us as our first sessions are always our busiest.
No experience is required to shoot at these sessions and you only need to bring yourself! We hope to see a lot of you there!
If you want any more information we’ll be at freshers fair.

Lancaster University Archery Club members will be wandering around lancaster Universities Alexandra Square tomorrow from 12-12:30pm, showing off our kit and chatting about archery. If you fancy learning more about the sport or the club, please come along and have a chat to us!
LUAC will be holding team try-outs on Friday 4th October 4-6pm, in Lancaster sports centre’s main sports hall. The try-outs will consist of a full Portsmouth round, and is open to any student who has previous shooting experience and has a GNAS card (or a previous member of the club). The purpose of the try-outs is just to get an idea of the level people are currently shooting at, this gives us an idea of how strong a senior team we can field and how much senior development we need to invest in; it will not effect your chances of being selected to be part of the team.
we look forward to seeing you all there 🙂

Also, now that Roses is done the new exec, elected at the AGM back in March, takes over. The exec page on the website will be updated with the new guys in the next couple of days
An eventful week this week. First up our new bosses have finally arrived after months of waiting!
Yesterday also saw the club’s annual general meeting, in which we elected the new exec for next year. Say hello to:
President: Matt McCormack
Safety & Equipment: Sam Evans
Treasurer: Ashley Teo
Captain: Mat Tripp
Training & Development: Chris Woodhead
Secretary: Lauren Baddeley
Socials: Michael Lindsay
The official handover between execs will happen at Roses (5th May).
That’s not all! This week we have been able to start shooting outdoors (at last!). Shoots will run on Wednesday afternoons and Sundays, when conditions allow. Extra shoots will also happen if there are enough people wanting it, the facebook group is the best way to keep up to date on this
Due to popular request the equipment workshop that was run last week will be repeated next week on Monday 6th Feb @ 6pm in Furness LT1. For those that missed the 1st time, this covers information on how to keep your equipment well maintained as well as how to set it up for maximum performance.
And since this is my second time doing it, odds are it’ll be better run that the first time through!
Hope to see many of you there
