The Caswell tournaments are a long-standing event within the Counties and Regions tournament Calander. They can be hugely enjoyable to organise, participate in and be involved with.

  • Sunday 26th May – Tournament Day

    • We need help please with booking in archers, making and selling breakfast rolls, making tea and coffee, directing traffic, putting out the tournament timing lights, ensuring the judges have what they need to eat and drink, help looking for participants arrows (yes at a County tournament there will be misses), helping with the scoring system etc, etc. It’s not necessary that you have any experience of tournament archery, you just need some enthusiasm to help. Its not necessary to stay all day! Giving some time would be hugely appreciated and if you can stay all day, that would be lovely. You will also get the opportunity to watch many of the Counties best Archers.

Club Open Day 27th July 24

Its purpose is to introduce our sport to a wider audience, to encourage participation and increase club membership. We will be advertising our event locally.

 

The event will be between 10am and 3pm, we will be providing an opportunity for adults and children to try archery. We also hope to have demonstrations with different bow styles and provide some light refreshments.

We will be requiring help to set the field up for this event but will establish a volunteer page nearer the event.

With any of these events, it’s not necessary for everyone to make themselves available for the whole event. If you can only spare an hour or two it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Please fill in the below to register your help, if you are struggling to fill in the form contact webmaster@targetcraft.org with details of what you can help with and it will be added for you. 

 

Our club needs all members to help as much as they are able. Please volunteer.
