Calling all Archers... calling all Archers!!!
“THE CONNOLLY CUP NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT!!!”
The Connolly Cup is a handicap competition that is open to all members irrespective of age, gender or ability, ...and it’s only with your support that we hope it will continue this season. The beauty of a handicap competition is the fact that it doesn’t matter whether you think you’re the best or worst archer at the club, literally anyone can win!
You may think that you’re ability as an archer is not good enough to compete in such a competition, but if you can hit a target at 40m then you have the same chance of winning as anyone else. So, come and give it a go and join in the fun, and if you qualify for the Final you might even do what Dee did last season and bag yourself 1st place and the £20 top prize. All as you need to do to be eligible to compete is get yourself a handicap, preferably before the competition starts on Sunday, 18th March.
I’ve made one change to the rules for qualification to the Final and that is you must compete in at least 4 of the 8 Stages, as well as finishing in the top ten of the league table to qualify.
Here are the dates of this seasons Stages. They’re only provisional and may change throughout the season.
Stage 1 – Sun 18th March
Stage 2 – Sun 22nd April
Stage 3 – Sun 13th May
Stage 4 – Sun 10th June
Stage 5 – Sun 15th July
Stage 6 – Sun 12th August
Stage 7 – Sun 9th September
Stage 8 – Sun 7th October
The Final – Sat 3rd November
Here are this seasons handicaps for those archers who took part in last seasons competition.
