      Friday 26th January    Gosport Competition
         On Friday 26th January we held the very first ‘Gosport’ competition for juniors. The round is shot at 60cm targets over 15 yards with 36 arrows. It was a great success attracting 17 young archers, all very enthusiastic and for many it was their first formal experience. We hope to repeat this again, maybe an outdoor round.
