Team Debrief after Walesby World Experience

11 November 2007

Following the Walesby World Experience the team met at Melton Camp Site, Hull on the weekend of September 21st, 2007.

The week at Walesby was discussed in great length and a short video of some points during the week were shown and discussed. Plenty of time was available for instructors to practice their own archery or just to sit and chat with other members of the team. Unfortunately a couple of people could make the weekend due to University commitments, but they were kept informed about things straight after the event.

Outcome of the debrief were:-

The future of the team. The team is to stay together and try to join in at least one major international each year. It would also be available for County, Group and District events for which it’s assistance would be required.

A web site was to be introduced to advertise the team electronically.

A code of conduct was agreed and rules of membership of the team. Following a viewing of the special needs session video, several minor points were discussed, making instructors more aware of the dedication required when dealing with disabled people. It was agreed by all that the special needs session was one of the best highlights of the week at Walesby.

Other events since August

Jules left Walesby and went straight to Cheshire for the Cubs County Camp where she delivered archery for the Cub Scouts and leaders during the week long Camp.

Several members of the team went to Humberside County Camp Site at Raywell Park. The purpose was to clear the overhanging trees and bushes that had encroached onto the Archery Range. When all the clearing had been completed, a new range was set out complete with new back stop netting, new shooting line and signage.

Team members delivered several archery sessions during the school holidays at Raywell, some travelling up from South Yorkshire to help out.

The team were used on South Holderness District camp held at Melton camp site.

Several weekends have been spent delivering archery at Walesby, Raywell and Melton sites.

Team members from Humberside delivered Archery for the Taboo Youth Group over a four day period in October. This youth group is for young people with problems and disruptive behaviour. The sessions went well and were enjoyed by all participants.
