THANKS to everyone who supported Sundays Charity shoot in aid of Temple Street Childrens Hospital, held by myself (Andrew W) and Dunbrody Archers. . A lot of work had gone into setting up the course & I hope everyone enjoyed the event. Thanks for all who arrived & for all the positive sentiments everyone, it made the effort all worth while.
A big thanks to JIMMY ALLENS RESTAURANT & TAKEAWAY…(New Ross) for the delicious pizzas and sausages which arrived and were devoured after the shoot. Very much appreciated Jimmy & Gilda.
Thanks to Don (B) for inspecting the course (twice to be sure) and for his invaluable advice. Thanks to Stephen for helping at various stages in the week leading up to the shoot. Thanks to Martin for all his help too and Sandra for printing the score cards.
Mary did a lot of work on sourcing raffle prizes, and looked after base camp and organising the raffle on the day. Thanks Sonja too for all the encouragement in the lead up, and for organising the registration and shoot groups on the day. It’s only when you try organise a shoot course, do you realise how much work goes into the preparation. Hats off to all IFAF course setters!
Anyway the day itself went very well -sunny, pleasant, and with a friendly jovial, and relaxed atmosphere, The morning consisted of 18 variety targets from a parachuting wild boar whose parachute snagged a tree, a target of foam knock down shapes, a bingo target, flying 3D birds, to a popular spinning foam drum.
The Hunting trail took place in the afternoon, where 21 part concealed 3D were discovered… (yes 21, not 20, 22, 23 etc…)
Congrats to all participants, and eventual winners and runners up.
A special thanks to our ITFAS friends Tricia, John, and Brian who made the long journey down from Warriors of Queen Maeve, as well as IFAF duo Martin Mc and Marijan who also travelled several hours to be there. and thanks to all who sent apologies as they couldn’t make it.
Thanks to the sponsors of the raffle prizes, and thanks for all who donated.
A special thanks to all who helped round up and return the 3D targets after the shoot…
All monies made (some still to come in) will be going to Temple Street Childrens Hospital. a very worthy cause indeed.
Following on from the shoot, the IFAF committee on a suggestion from Don P, very kindly donated €200 from IFAF towards the cause.
