Classification and handicaps at November 2017 (pdf)

Some members appear on the handicap list but not on the classifications list. This just reflects the way earlier handicaps are carried forward even if the archers submitted scores for less than 3 rounds.

You can also get a quick check on a score’s classification and handicap on ‘Archers Mate’.

The Surrey County Clout (double, 1 way, with Tassel award)

The 2018 competition will be on Saturday, 18 August. Entry form available from March.

The 2017 competition was held at the Club on Saturday 19 August. It was a warm, sunny day with some clouds and an occasionally blustery westerly breeze.

The event coincided with Biggin Hill airport’s centenary celebrations and we were treated to the RAF’s Red Arrows displaying overhead in the afternoon and some old bi- and tri-planes circling nearby.

Results: 2017 ;   2016.

The range is certificated by AGB as complying with safety requirements for clout shoots.

3-way interclub friendly

We regularly host CMO and Atkins archery clubs on the 1st Sunday of July to shoot an American round (juniors shoot a “St. Nicholas” round). The 2017 shoot on 2 July was blessed with a hot, sunny day with a northerly breeze.
