New Proposed Constitution for SCAA

The document is now available for members to view. A copy has been sent to all Club Secretaries with a request to contact all club members and collate comments, views and opinions of Association members. The timescale for return of comments to the Association Secretary is Sunday 26th June 2016. Your comments, views and opinions are important and will play an equally important part of helping to develop the future of the Association.

Wanted - Tournament Organiser

The county is looking for a new organiser for the Senior Indoor Championships to be held January 2017. If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved, or wish to take over this rewarding role, please contact Doug Human who will be pleased to take you through the details.
Without the commitment of Somerset archers to put something back into the sport, these tournaments would not take place.

Somerset Junior Records - New Look

The Somerset Junior records have been revamped and are now split by age groups. This means there are now an awful lot of records up for grabs.
Claiming a record remains the same in that the round must be shot at a tournament (this does not need to be record status or shot in the county).
The archer needs to send in the result sheet, ideally by email, and scores they are claiming, for instance on a Metric round as well as the overall 12 dozen score there are distance totals etc. now included. Full details on the County Records page.
