PHILIP BLACKIE 1942-2017
Philip joined our club in September of 2009 when Beckenham Bowmen folded. He and another of their members brought a load of the old club’s archery equipment which was very welcome.
Philip was a familiar sight on the the shooting line, except when he was on one of his many jaunts to Australia! He was often dressed in tweed and always looked smart. Softly spoken and a quiet figure in the club, he will be missed.
Philip’s memorial service was held at Honor Oak Crematorium on 3 October 2017.
Rest in peace Philip.
Swan Soup Shoot, Western - 15 October 2017
A lovely bright, warm, sunny day in October. Not terribly soupy weather but the soup was delicious! Andy Barham won for gents barebow and scored a personal best and Helen Jeory came second (to a rubber bandit) for ladies longbow. Poor George missed out on the raffle but he shot well (against the rubber bandit brigade!).
Andy Barham - 1st Gent Barebow
Helen Jeory - 2nd Lady Longbow
High Weald Charity Shoot – 30 September 2017
It was an autumnal day with some bright sunshine for this invitation only longbow shoot. We shot a bespoke round comprising 12 dozen arrows at 60, 50 and 40 yards. George (Gard) received a special prize at the end of the day for being a “venerable archer” and for finishing the round! Helen came second for the lady longbows.
Helen Jeory – 2nd Lady
Invicta Coaching, Handicap Westerns - 23 July 2017
As the name implies, this shoot is based on handicap. The raw score is used to calculate a "handicap" score and the higher your raw score the lower your handicap score and vice versa. Bascially it pays to get a lower raw score! However, Andy did shoot a New Western so he did very well. Andy Barham won for gents barebow.
LPA Grand Knight's Challenge - 28 May 2017
A different type of shoot this year, as the club have had to relocate temporarily. This comprised a series of medieval themed targets and still included the knight and attendants. Due to a series of mishaps, Bromley’s attendance was well down on previous years. Andy Barham won for the barebow gents.
Med Soc St George's Day Shoot - 22 April 2017
A dismal, damp start to the double medieval National at Belmont House. However, the day improved dramatically and there was some very good shooting by the attendant archers. Helen Jeory won silver for the lady longbows, two points behind the winner.
Swan Archers Spring Shoot - 2 April 2017
A glorious day for Swan's Western shoot. The sun shone, the arrows flew and Helen Jeory won First Lady Overall prize and First Lady Longbow. Unfortunately George's raffle numbers were not lucky this time. At least he eventually found his car keys in his lunchbox!
