After the Tournament is over, the Field will be left set up for shooting National Rounds, ready for the Final Bow Meeting next day.

Sunday 14 September, Cheltenham Archers Final Bow Meeting.
Assembly 1.45pm, Sighters at 2.00pm.
Rounds are Nationals, Short Nationals, Junior Nationals, Short Junior Nationals.
This a Members Only shoot, ideal for any new Member as their first foray into tournament shooting.
The Club has a collection of very handsome trophies which are competed for at this event each year,
and which are presented at the AGM, which will be on Wednesday 24 September, in the Club House at 7.00pm.
No formal Entry Forms are required for The Final Bow Meeting, you can just turn up on the day and shoot.
However, it would be of great assistance if you could let either Jackie Bowser or me know if you plan to come,
so that we can have the Field set beforehand with the right number of targets, and I can print the right number of score cards.

I would appreciate volunteers to help with.
A. Setting up the Horace Ford on Sunday 7 Sept  10.30am, and again in the afternoon about 4.30pm.
B. Setting up for the GAS Junior Champs Sat 13 Sept 9.30am
If you are willing to help with either of these please e-mail me.

Edward Kain.
