President’s Remarks 2014 HAA

In reviewing the year 2013, the President, Barbara Anscombe, said:

I do know how much work is put in, by a few, for the benefit of the many archers within the county.  I thank them all, Committee members, officers, organisers, coaches and judges.  Without these volunteers, the vast number of archers who enjoy shooting at club or county level, in our county or in other county tournaments, would not be able to do so.  We urgently need new blood on all the committees associated with the HAA.  It is good to see the “old stalwarts” still supporting and training archers and organisers, but it would be even better if they were being shadowed by some new people.  This is a perennial plea, but it is still vital.

I would strongly recommend that all archers work alongside a tournament organiser and see what is involved.  The county possesses a wealth of knowledge on how to run events and this has been documented.  So if there is an event being run near you, go along and liaise with the organiser, they will appreciate your input.  A job shared is more easily covered.  Similarly work parties to prepare fields for events.  These can be full of fun and laughter and it is a good way to get to know fellow county archers away from the shooting line.

If you enjoy your archery, help to keep it going, by working together.  The very best to you, I hope all your arrows group well during 2014.
