EARLY ANNOUNCEMENT OF IMPORTANT AND EXCITING NEWS
(Especially for Compound archers)
THE ENGLISH ARCHERY
The English Archery Federation (EAF) has been awarded substantial funding from Sport England to provide a development program for a group of top performing compound archers to undertake training towards competing in the Commonwealth Games in 2010.
The places on the programme will be subject to continued performance achievement throughout this period and substitutions may be made if appropriate. Selection of the final team members to compete in The Games will be made nearer the time.
Training is intended to start over the winter months.

This is great news for Compound archers we believe this is the first time that governmental funding has been granted for compounds.
Would you please be kind enough to inform all secretaries in your counties by sending on this document and ask them to forward this information in turn to all clubs in their area so that archers can be prepared!
