Congratulations to Jason and Florland with over £2000 raised between them so far. Still time to donate here: In aid of the Typhoon Haiyan Appeal
I have decided to do a sponsored archery shoot to raise money for the people in the Philippines who have been affected by the recent Typhoon. My goal is to raise as much money as possible and to also inspire others to contribute their energy and love to this special cause.
I have the support of Archery GB, Perris Archery, Greg Hill Strings and several other archery based organisations who are assisting me with this task.
I will be shooting at Perris Archery range on Sunday 24th November 2013. I will be shooting 11 Bray rounds, which consists of shooting 330 arrows in 6 hours (with a 30 minute break). This equates to 1 arrow per minute.
The 11 Bray rounds represents the 11 million Filipinos directly affected by the typhoon.
I have set up a virgin money fundraising page which is very easy to donate to. Any sponsorship will be directed to the British Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal. Their main objective is to provide food parcels, tents, blankets, mosquito nets, hygiene parcels and a health care unit that will help 30,000 people in need of medical attention.
Please donate here: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/JasonLapuz
Please share this event with your friends and family all around the world. I hope you will take the time to support & sponsor me. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Michael Judd, fresh from his 2nd in the National Series and being ranked 4th in the country - started the Andy Harris league with a perfect score of 360 for Mayflower in the first match.
This is the first time that this has ever been achieved - Michael Peart managed 359 on four separate occasions but this is the first perfect score in the competition.
Congratulations Michael - that record is yours and cannot be beaten.

Bob Smith from the BWAA says:-
On a wider note, there are very few para specific events and if we want them staged then they have to be supported.
Although priority will be given to para archers this event is open to all GNAS archers.
After nearly 15 months of Hard training by many junior archers, the Southern performance academy in Gloucester opened its doors on the 20th of September for a weekend of intense training for the chosen archers.
With 6 junior archers from Essex being offered places in the academy. These are Alex Body, Grace Buttield, Lauren Bann, Josie Skinner, George Johnson and Jonathan Tate.
They will now under take 10 of these weekends between now and next August, with meetings with their selected coach in between camps.
Luckily all of these archers have been given to Tony Ferguson who will be holding the in between sessions at Perris Archery.
Also Rebecca Griffin is at the academy working on the para programme.
Here is a link to the BBC report of the opening of the academy. http://tinyurl.com/p77uytl
Well done to these archers
