Andy Wilkinson - 10 January 2022

The YAA AGM will be held on Saturday 12th March 2022.

The current intention is for a face-to-face meeting at Shaw Lane Barnsley, depending on circumstances and legalities.

This year there will be elections for the following posts:
 Clout Officer
 Junior Officer
 Judges Liaison Officer
 County Teams Co-ordinator
and a number of general committee posts.

If any member of the YAA would like to express an interest in any of the posts please contact me in the first instance and consider attending the AGM. You are a member of YAA through your club membership.

Also the Target Tournament Organiser will be stepping down in 2023. If you are interested in organising shoots for Yorkshire please get in touch now - an understudy role is available.

YAA Indoor Championships 2022 cancelled

Andrew Neal - 9 January 2022

The Committee have decided that due to the ongoing uncertainty of the Covid pandemic they will not be putting on the Yorkshire Indoor Championships on the usual date of 13 March 2022.

The Committee are considering options as to whether they can put on the Championships in the Autumn of 2022. We appreciate this will be disappointing to archers but given the scheduled date is only 9 weeks away we do not want to get into a position of "hopefully" putting the shoot on and then cancelling it at a later date.

Should anyone have trophies from the last held Championships in March 2019 and wish to return them, then can you please contact Andrew on

Dave Harrison

5 January 2022

Dave Harrison, former Chairman of Archery GB, has passed away. He died in his sleep on the night of the 3rd of January.

Dave was a lifelong ambassador for the sport, and a very well-known character nationally and regionally. He was a judge for many years, covering many Yorkshire events and tournaments around the NCAS and nationally.

He performed great work as a committee member for Durham & Northumberland and the Northern Counties Archery Society. He served as Chairman of Archery GB at a time of important and often controversial changes, steering a steady course.

He leaves a wife, Dorothy, and two daughters, Donna and Victoria.

The YAA extends its sincere condolences to his family and many friends.
