The lost newsletters

Dear members, I have been monitoring a few returns from previous editions of the newsletter mailing and in discussion with a few archers at some of the open shoots recently I have started to think there is a bigger problem. I have identified a possible issue with the mailing file we send to the printers which I have fixed for the current issue and hopefully the mailing will work and everyone will get their newsletter. If you do not receive a copy that you expected please let me know and I will investigate and try to resolve the issue.

AGM Update

Date: 20th November 2021 at 10am
Location: Worcestershire Young Farmers, Shires Farm, Hawford, Worcester
W3W: ///

Virtual attendance permitted: Yes

For the first time, we are going to attempt a hybrid in person and virtual AGM. If you would like to attend the AGM virtually, please contact with your name and NFAS number and an invitation will be sent out to you nearer the time. Please note that this has not been attempted before and we will be relying on technology that has not been previously tested under these circumstances. Any Proposers and/or supporters of rule changes will need to attend in person to ensure clarity of discussion.

The AGM will start promptly at 10am, please ensure you arrive to register, and log into the virtual meeting, before this time.

Tea and coffee will be available, however please bring your own lunch in case the meeting extends into the afternoon.

No postcode given as sat nav will take you to the wrong area, the only way to the YFC Centre is via a driveway off the A449.

Agenda and proposals will be provided in due course.
