George’s Newsletter – April 2017

The outdoor season has got off to a good start. Twenty nine people have joined the first of our beginners’ courses for this year, and we hope that we shall soon be welcoming a good number of them as members of the club.

At the annual general meeting of the East Midlands Archery Society,we were pleased to hear that Mario Stankovic was awarded the Ron Smith Memorial Trophy for services to archery in the East Midlands. Mario is a long-time member of Sherwood Archers, a senior coach and a senior judge, qualified to officiate at high levels, and working tirelessly for the club and the region.Our congratulations to Mario on this well-deserved award.

Finally,it is with great sadness, that we heard of the death of Marcia ,wife of club member, Fred Kirkham. Although not an archer herself,Marcia was a regular supporter and helper at the club, and she will be missed by those members who knew her.Our thoughts are with Fred and his family at this sad time.
