Reminder – Book your Christmas Panto here
before before 18th October
A course for Target Sprint leaders is being run on the 19th October at Little Silver.
(Discussions are taking place to run a Devon Target Sprint competition at Sidmouth in June alongside a Regional Targetsprint event).
The date for the 2020 Devon Scouts target camp is the 15/17th May at Budleigh Farm. This is limited to 24 scouts/explorers. Forms to go out in December.
At present the entries for the first round of the Devon ICQ shoot are starting to come in from groups around the county. This round is run as a postal shoot with the cards shot at the Scout’s home range in either air rifle or air pistol or both. From this the top 40 will be invited to the Devon final (which incorporates the Devon inter District Championships ) on the 15th of December at the Okehampton range.
We are hosting the 4th South West Regional Inter County Air Championships in January at Okehampton. The Devon Teams for this will be selected from the December shoot.
A team from Devon has been entered into the 2020 national Scout Inter County Air Championships at Wolverhampton in April. This will be selected from the Devon squad who attend three training days in January February and March. This squad is chosen from those young people who attend the December Championships.
We have received enquiries as to the viability of running a county archery competition based upon district teams sometime in 2020. The main issue is the availability of target bosses in suitable numbers to enable significant archers to take part. If any person is aware of a stock of target bosses greater than five please can they get in touch with Andy Bowman
