Yes it’s newsletter time again. We hope you all enjoyed the last newsletter and that you’ve all had a good month. It’s been a pretty quiet one through September but that’s all about to change!

As you know next weekend is our major shoot at Murrenbong Scout Camp. The committee has been working very hard behind the scenes to set up this shoot, and it’s all starting to come together. The courses are set, but if you happen to have a couple of spare hours on Friday (28th) I know the boys have a fair bit of work to do in putting out 50 targets, and they sure would appreciate a hand. Stephen has been rounding up sponsors to help cover the costs of running the shoot, and has done a fantastic job of securing some great deals. Cathy is busy getting all the canteen supplies and organizing the meals, so everything is well under way. Don’t forget if you can spare any time to help out in any way it would be greatly appreciated. Please call Dennis or Stephen if you can lend a hand.

For those of you just coming along to shoot we have some great news. The committee have received permission to use the in ground pool on the site. All it will cost you is $1 per person/per day, or you can swim in the lake for free…so bring your togs and tell all your friends. It will be a fantastic way to cool off after you’ve finished shooting, especially if it’s going to be warm. The canteen will be open from Friday night for dinner, so if possible let Cathy know ahead of time if you’ll be staying for dinner so that she can have some ideas of numbers.

The committee have secured a time at the Morayfield Tavern to hold meat raffles to raise funds for the club. Starting from October 6th, if you are available on Saturdays between the hours of 4pm and 6pm and are able to volunteer your time to sell tickets, please contact Dennis or Cathy. We would like to setup a roster system if possible. The three meat trays will be purchased from ‘Get Fresh’ in Caboolture. So come down on a Saturday for a drink or dinner to support the Tavern for allowing us to raise these funds.

WORKING BEE 13/10/07
This working bee will be postponed by one week to the 20th of October 2007. We will prepare the club this weekend for the Corrival. We will also hold a General Meeting at the Club on this day at 9.30am.

Welcome to our newest members at the club, Sylvia, Jed, Jane and Kate Kelly. Welcome aboard guys. We hope you enjoy your time at the club and don’t forget if you have any questions just ask any of the committee members for help.

Although we are all busy preparing for the Murrenbong shoot, the traditional shoot is not that far away either. Gary, Glenn, Perry and crew are also busy preparing for this shoot, which is to be held at the end of October on our club grounds. In the picture above you can see one of the interesting shots that you may be in for at this shoot. The guys take great pride in setting up some great fun and interesting shots, but remember it’s for traditional gear only…no compounds or carbon arrows, just

longbows, self bows or recurves with timber arrows and feathers only. Last year we had a lovely bunch of larrikins from the Hunter Valley come up to visit us and they had a ball. We really hope they will be back again this year too. On Friday night there will be a free sausage sizzle and on Saturday a spit roast. All meals will be catered for starting with Friday’s sausage sizzle through to Sunday lunch. Over the course of the two days you will be shooting 3D targets, a speed round, flu flu, moving target, giant steel cane toad and the infamous tree stand that the guys’


built last year. So you will be sure to have some fun! If you are interested in some serious competition there will also be the Hawkeye Jackpot shoot. I’m not sure how much is up for grabs but last year it was won at our shoot. If you are interested there will also be the Australian Archery Craft Guild show - category’s - best selfbow , recurve , longbow , best set arrows , best axe / knife , best leatherwork , Junior Encouragement Awards. So bring along all your archery related craft.
