Paul Maines

It is with deep regret and sadness that I must inform you that Paul Maines died on Sunday 23rd August. He had been feeling unwell over the weekend, was admitted to hospital and died at lunchtime.
Paul was not only an archery enthusiast and coach, but also a great servant of the sport, both for his club, Gordano Valley, and for his county, Somerset, where he had been Chairman until his health deteriorated as he was undergoing treatment for cancer - a treatment he endured bravely and without complaint.
He will be greatly missed by all his archery friends and, on behalf of SCAA, I offer sincere condolences to his family.

Andrew Rees - Chairman, Somerset County Archery Association

Competitions Need Judges - how about becoming a judge?

Without judges, no competition can take place and, in Somerset, judges are few and far between. Why not join this select band? Whether you are a competition archer or only shoot for fun, judging is a way to put something back into the sport you love. AGB has put an introduction to judging on their website,  if you are interested, please click on this link.
If you would prefer to see what is involved without commitment, please email me and I will try to arrange for you to ‘shadow’ me at one of the forthcoming competitions.
