I would like to start by thanking Jonathan Walton for stepping up last year and taking on the Chairman’s role for the last 12 months

Going against the norm I would like to thank individuals who without their input into county affairs the shooting would be a lot duller for everyone. Thanks to Jon Poole for maintaining the county records and to his son Sam for collating the heritage scores, Ian Johnston for running the indoor league, Liz Norton and Gavin McKinnel for running the junior squads, Ray Fisher for being our team manager for both seniors and juniors. Also all the club shoot organizers that give us the varied shoots over the year. These members just do the jobs without any fuss but I think we would all miss them if they stopped.

It is good to see Shropshire archers going further afield to shoots and our junior members are really excelling when competing. I am proud to say we have both Girl and Boy WMAS indoor champions within Shropshire

Congratulations to Bowbrook Archers who now have their indoor range and clubhouse.

Lastly I would like to wish you all good shooting for the forthcoming. outdoor season.
