Committee VACANCY – Club Secretary

As you are no doubt aware, all committee members are required to formally step down from their roles ahead of the AGM.

Please let it be known that due to an ever increasingly hectic work and family life, and the subsequent consequences on my ill-health, I do NOT intend to run for the committee again so the role of Secretary is up for grabs. I stepped in last year as a last measure in order to keep the club going but cannot do so again.

Please let me know know by midnight tomorrow (Saturday 23rd) if you wish to be considered.

Many thanks and best regards,


2019 clout competition

B.P.A Clout competition 17th March 2019


Well there was eventually a break in the weather allowing the competition to take place. It actually turned out to be a nice bright morning, though it was a little on the chilly side..! even the wind had died down allowing the arrows to stay in roughly the right direction so any ramblers in the area were safe too..!


Getting ready to shoot

It was a brilliant morning for all that took part regardless of skill level

Of course, after shooting there is the long walk to see how well you have done. If nothing else, you get some exercise in.!


How can you not have a great time when you’re surrounded with sights like this??





AGM 2019 – Appointment of Officers, rule changes, etc.

As previously announced, the Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held at Buscot Village Hall on Tuesday 2 April 2019 at 7:15 PM for a prompt 7:30 PM start.
Any proposals and committee nominations need to be with Emma by midnight on Saturday 23 March.
The appointment of Officers and any proposals affecting the Club finances or the Rules and Constitution will be dealt with at the meeting.
Please attend the meeting if you can — it’s a good opportunity to help shape the future of your Club.
Nominations, with seconders, for these or for any other committee posts should be sent to the Secretary, Emma Johnson ( or 12 Elm Road, Faringdon, Oxon SN7 7EJ), to arrive not later than midnight on Saturday 23 March 2019 in accordance with Rule 11(b) in order to be included in the agenda for the meeting. Nominations by email are perfectly acceptable.
The club desperately needs members to participate in its running. For far too long we’ve had committee members having to take on two roles because of the lack of volunteers. This means that some jobs don’t get done.
Any proposals on the Club finances or the Rules and Constitution must be received no later than midnight on Saturday 23 March 2019.
Time permitting, after the main business of the AGM is concluded, the Chairman may at his discretion open the meeting for discussion of other business.
Please bring your cheque books, etc. as Club subscriptions are due by 30 April 2019. It helps the Club considerably when subscriptions are received promptly.
