​DAA Indoor Chamionship​​

Please note (if you dont already know) the annual Dyfed champs will take
place on Sunday 11th Febuary at the leisure centre so no club shoot. PLease come along and support our archers competing.


To all members of Fort Archers

This club has been in existence since approximately 1996 and has up until now been able to sustain itself financially, reasonably comfortably by asking for a shooting fee of £2 for juniors and £4 for seniors. However recently the local authorities have changed their policies regarding their support of local sporting organisations that encourage and promote their sport and the younger generations who wish to enter it . This has meant that the fees for the weekly rental of the leisure centre have been increased to the extent that our current subs will no longer cover the costs of rental. Your committee have therefore reluctantly decided to raise the weekly subs by one pound per shooting member. In addition. your committee has agreed as individual members to supply a raffle prize for say every few weeks and a raffle will be held on a shooting morning for that prize. We trust that you will all understand the decision that has been taken. These changes will take effect from the beginning of 2018.

​​ ​FROM BARRACKING COMES TRIUMPH

​    Mel was shooting on Sunday morning along with all the other club members in attendance. He was not shooting exceptionally well as he was suffering from post "Man Flu" flu jab blues. However during the morning Dai Sneade decided to use stick on target centres to cover up the by now battered faces. He put one on Mel's target at the same time and almost simultaneously an amount of barracking was recieved from elsewhere in the hall. Things like "thats optimistic" and " some people kid themselves don't they". Accepting banter is the norm, Mel stepped up to the shooting line and planted three perfect arrows in the X. Rather than spoil the momnent he packed up for the morning.

​​ ​Bows and Guns

Seven Fort Archers members enjoyed an evenings air rifle shooting at the dragons rifle club at Narberth on Tuesday 7th. We had one round of 5 pellets each with two different rifles both at ten yards. It is fair to say that there were mixed fortunes throughout and as to be expected we were beaten overall by the home club team. Of our team Mel scored the highest but only very narrowly beating Paul and Geraint into second and third place. After the main rounds it was suggested that we had what they call a snap shoot. This again involved five shots but this time we were given a signal to raise our rifles and then given three seconds to fire each shot. Well that's when the fun started. Mel was the first to put one of his shots into the carpet followed not far behind by Dave doing the same. So over the three years we have been doing it the scores are Dave, one radiator and one carpet and Mel with one carpet watch this space, It could be the light fittings next. Will it ever be forgotten? I doubt it. Oh yes and Mel won a bottle of wine in the raffle. Lucky f-----r. That's “feller”

                   The Carpet baggers

They say that archery is friendly pastime,
A sport that is just full of fun.
But there's some who would say, at the end of the day,
Don't trust an old archer with a gun.

This all comes about after some went out,
To the dragons gun club in Narberth.
The evening went well with top score to Mel,
And with sarnies half time and much mirth.

But then came the quick shoot with triggers quite light,
And little time to take good aim.
There were good shots and bad and some even sad,
But all in the spirit of the game game.

So why carpet baggers I hear you all say,
Because Dave and old Mel while competing quite well
Put two shots in the carpet that day.

It will not be forgotten by those who are rotten,
And especially by those who were there.
But our skins are thick and despite all the tricks,
At the end of the day we don't care.

​Mel

​Will it ever be forgoten? I thought not! The banter continues.
​Today, Geraint brought in a piece of carpet and pinned it to one of the targets, he then invited Dave and Mel to have some carpet shooting practice! 
                            Very Funny!
