Society & Club News

NFAS History

A little bit more history has been added to the website.

First, some Champs History - venues, dates and course layers going back to 1973. We've added what we know but unfortunately, it's not yet complete. If you can fill in any of the blanks, especially for the more recent years, please send me an email (

Secondly, we're recognising our previous Committee volunteers. A few gaps in this one as well - predominantly from pre-1986 (as we don't have many of the early newsletters to refer to). Again, if you are able to fill in any of the gaps please email me.

Photography at the Nationals

Unfortunately, Alex, our resident photographer, won't be able to go to the Nationals this year because of a family event. So, there is an opportunity if anyone else wants to have a go at being the Official Photographer.

It is a huge amount of fun with a chance to see all the courses, chat to everyone and have the satisfaction of seeing your pictures used and enjoyed by people.

If anyone wants to have a chat about what is involved, send an email to Webby and we'll forward it on to Alex

Nationals Patches

2019 Nationals Patch

Burton-on-Trent is famous for its connection with the brewing industry, so this year's Nationals Patch shows "The Burton Cooper", a local sculpture in the town celebrating that history. Patches can be ordered with your Champs Entry.

Nationals Champs

We are finding that an increasing number of people are requesting to shoot with/not shoot with certain people. This makes the already complicated group allocation process even more arduous. Requests for shooting partners should only be sent in for medical/disability reasons or parent/shoot guardian & child. Requests to shoot with people for any other reason are likely to be disregarded. Any archer who submits a list of demands about who they will/will not shoot with (children, named individuals etc) may find that their application is not accepted.

  • Wasp pegs will be used for UL, CL, XB and FS. The order of shooting (for adults) in these classes is wasp, red, white.
  • Camping at the Champs ground is pre-book/pre-pay - you can book this online with your entry.
  • All Walkers must to be registered in advance - you can book this online with your entry.
