4 archers went to Lilleshall for the British Blind Sport national outdoor archery championships. We cam away with 1 first and 3 thirds.

Good news! From 2019 onwards we now have a weekend back at the start of each of our archery weeks. This means that we can now visit sighted clubs or host shoots against them.

At the Archery GBAGM held on Saturday 21st April, David Poyner was awarded a silver plaquette.

It is with great regret that I have to announce the death of Norman Perry. He passed away on Monday 16th April. Norman was the founder member of St Dunstans Archery club and the co-founding member of British Blind Sport Archery.
He was the original developer of what we now call tactile archery. He began in the chalk cellars of St Dunstans, Ovingdean. He used a cymbal stand and a paint brush as a tactile sight. This was around 1975 with St Dunstans AC being formed in 1977 and British Blind Sport Archery being formed in 1985.
He will be sadly missed.

During our indoor archery week in February we held our AGM. At this David Poyner stood down as chair. He had been on the committee for 17 years, 3 as vice-chair and 14 as chair.. Peter Price also stood down from the committee.

The new committee following this meeting is:
Chair John Cunnington
Vicechair Carol Davies
Committee members
Graham Walker, Derek McDonald, Dennis Murphy and John Bower.
