In Memory
As a lot of you will be aware, Frankley, over the last two years have lost some great characters with the demise of our
beloved founder Malcolm Archer, the vivacious John Ashmore and the great David Cope, Whilst there are us who feel life will
never be the same again it is "Business as usual".
The Bad News

The Good News

We restart on Tuesday, 8th September.

present members. Philip Johnson is the point of contact for these festivities and all details are on the NFAS and Frankley

The Goals Football Park
There is a 'Shooting Range' now at "The Goals Football Park" in Rowley Regis this has been added to Frankley's shooting ground portfolio. All members shooting should show their membership cards on arrival at their reception desk. There is no charge for this facility and the bar can be frequented once you have shot (not before please) and again not to be used on a official club night.
Something To Do During This Summer
We will be down the shoot ground at Bell End Farm at 7:00 pm next Tuesday (21st July) to discuss the work schedule and the plans for the ground. All are welcome. Come on and work a few pounds off before you show off that athletic body on the beach.
A friendly reminder for those who still haven't paid their memberships these are now due to keep costs down. Anyone can down load a form from the website if not call 07812 245159 and we will post you one out.
Shoot Dates
Finally, shoot dates for the Dingle are to be announced shortly so please look out for details.
We welcome your support and appreciate that you have a choice.
Keep yer arrows straight and yer bow bent!
