The last Junior session for 2016 was held on the 17th December. It was a Fun Shoot using Have a Go Bows & Arrows with assorted Christmas Fun Target Faces.
The Face consisting of nothing but Balloons was very popular with a great many Balloons being popped and having to be frequently replaced!
In the first period, 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners were Aneke Mayer, Luis Beeley & Joshua Borders.
In the second period, 1st, 2nd & 3rd winners were Jason Holt, Charlie Carter & Matthew Hopkinson.
We would like to thank seniors David Littlejohn, for supplying and putting up the Have a Go Bows etc and Andy Massey, for decorating the Club House with Christmas Lights etc.
The Junior Club sessions for 2017 will begin on Saturday the 21st of January.
Until the end of March sessions will take place inside the Club house unless the weather is suitable to shoot Outside.
The period is still divided into the TWO original sessions, with up to 13 juniors at each session. This means that the Club House is available to the Junior Club each Saturday from 9.30am untill 1.30pm.
