Notes from the KAA AGM

Finally held at Medway Archers on Sunday 19th November with 22 members from 11 clubs and one direct member.

Reports were submitted and discussed and those listed below have been elected for the fort coming year, unfortunately there are vacancies and the committee will be seeking members to fill the gaps, including the Tournament Organisers.  Anybody wanting to fill a gap and undertake a role please be assured that there will be full support to help you.

As it stands we only have one tournament organiser for a senior outdoor tournament so we may be seeking your thoughts on which shoot to hold if we can’t find a TO.

Field Archery in Kent, 12th November.

Following on from the SCAS test event last weekend the next Field day in Kent is on the 12 November 23.

If you want to try a different form of archery come and give it a go, you will need some sight marks from 10m to 60m and you shoot your normal equipment so no special kit required.

You will be paired with an experienced field archer who will giude you through the day.

Hope to see you on the 12th November

Notes from the Ops Meeting

Firstly a massive congratulations to two of our juniors shooting the Youth World Championship, Silver for Isabella Bruguier and Bronze for Ajay Scott. Well done to you both.

Change of Team Manager Following many years in the role Peter Dallas has stood down from the position of Team Manager, every one at KAA would like to thank Peter for the relentless service given to KAA. Hannah Brown has kindly stepped up to fill the gap and we’re sure that you will all give her your support.

KAA introduces new award, following discussions with our former President Derrick Lovell we have set up an award in his name to recognise execelence from our juniors. This award is not limited to success with the bow but where a junior excels in any aspect in our sport. For more details dowload the outline here

A reminder that the KAA AGM will be on the 6th Aug 2023, 7pm to be held at Inrange Archery Wrotham.

Junior Scores, in the last post we notified you of a Junior County Match and in order to build a team to compete we need juniors to submit their scoers via the Golden Records platform. Please contact the records officer to get the access codes and submit your scores.
