My story

[p][b][u]Overton Black Arrows Fund Raising[/u][/b][/p][p]This year the Overton Black Arrows archery club is to be raising money for [url=http://www.steppingstonesds.co.uk]Stepping Stones Down Syndrome Support Group[/url]. This is an exceptionally worth while charity which supports children and young people with Down Syndrome and their families across North Hampshire, South East Berkshire and West Surrey.[/p][p][b][u]Race the Sun with Overton Black Arrows[/u][/b][/p][p]To raise as much money as we can, on the 20th June, we will be attempting to shoot 307km of Arrows. This is equivalent to the distance that the sun moves at our latitude between sunrise and sunset. Archers of all disciplines and skill levels will be shooting from 5am until 9pm to attempt to make this happen. [/p][p]You can donate using: [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/OvBA]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/OvBA[/url] . Alternatively, you can pledge per km on our website: [url=http://www.overtonblackarrows.org]www.overtonblackarrows.org[/url]. [/p][p]Should we have to postpone due to COVID-19 we will make the attempt later in the year.[/p][p][br][/p][p][b][u]About the Overton Black Arrows[/u][/b][/p][p]Originally established in 1962, the Overton Black Arrows archery club was founded to allow members to enjoy all aspects of the sport of archery from beginner tuition, recreational archery through to competition coaching. The club is affiliated with Archery GB, Southern Counties Archery Society (SCAS) and the Hampshire Archery Association (HAA).[/p][p]Members currently shoot a variety of disciplines including Target, Field and Clout using Recurve, Barebow, Compound, flatbow and Long Bows.[/p][p]The club meets at its outdoor range in Laverstoke (between Overton and Whitchurch) all year and also once a week at its 18 metre indoor range in Whitchurch during the winter. We also meet regularly at our Field Archery course in Kingsclere.[/p]
