150th GWAS Commemorative Badge

A message from this year's Dunster Week Tournament Organiser:

I hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to this years Dunster Week which I hope is going to be something a bit special as it will mark the 150th Grand Western Archery Meeting.
One of the things we are doing to mark this auspicious occasion is to have a commemorative badge commissioned. This will be available for anyone to purchase; you don’t have to have shot at Dunster or even be an archer!

Details and the order form are here.   Please see example of the badge.

The badges will be available for collection at Dunster in July, but if you can’t make it, I will sort out an alternative method of getting yours to you.
I must say a huge thank you to Tony Newland for doing the legwork on this, it really is very much appreciated 😊

I look forward to hearing from you and have a great week!

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.
Judges are also putting on Taster sessions without commitment, please see this document
Please email John Cunningham if you are interested or have any queries.
