Jamie Diep - Captain
Jamie is a recurve archer and this years club captain. Having already been on the committee as secretary, we are certain that he will be a fantastic captain (along with his commanding train whistle) and will lead us well. When he’s not at archery, Jamie studies Physics and can be occasionally found revising for upcoming exams with notebook in hand.
Don’t be fooled, Jamie may seem stern but he does smile.... on special occasions mind you, and can be seen cracking jokes throughout the year.
As well as an overall fun guy, Jamie is also a accomplished archer and has blown away many with his skill!!

Lauren Manton - Treasurer
Our Treasurer, Lauren Manton, had originally planned to keep track of the cash flow of no fewer than three societies, soon realising that having control over that much money was a very bad idea indeed.
Versed in the dark art of the barebow, she will consistently complain as to how badly she's doing while still beating some of us who use sights! Regardless, let's hope she keeps our finances on target! (I am so, so sorry)
Outside of office hours, Lauren may be found deep within a cave, and inviting everyone else down said cave... It's dark and scary down there, and there are spiders.

Kellie Pettinger - Secretary
In the red corner we have Kellie "The Rock" Pettinger, winner of more than 7 RAW Smackdown Tag Team belts. She would've gone undefeated if it weren't for her arch nemesis "Glasscup-luchio" who cut her career short with a devastating hand injury too graphic for Daytime TV.
Outside her pro wrestling career she shoots with Bristol and even manages our paperwork (I expect you to help manage my life for this amazing piece). She also tries her hand at lacrosse and frisbee, but is stunningly underwhelming in both.

Callum McDonnell - Development Officer
Callum is the development officer this year. Having participated in contact sports such as football and Rugby in the past, Callum has received multiple injuries such as broken bones. Therefore, he turned to archery as a safer alternative. Even if you are accident prone and despite its historical use in warfare and hunting archery is a very safe sport.
As the newest development officer, I am sure Callum will work hard to support both new and existing members of the club throughout the year, helping them to develop and improve and encouraging participation at competitions.

Sam Woodcock - Equipment Officer
Birmingham. Population of about 1.3 million. Agreed by many, to have the worst sounding accent in the United Kingdom. Yet amongst the 1.3 million terrible accents, spawns our equipment officer, Sam.
Fletching, nocking and pointing arrows; Sam can do. Licking rocks; Sam lives for. Yes, our equipment officer studies Geology. However, Sam has been a great helping hand when it comes to taking inventories of equipment and making sure sets of arrows are the best they can be. But be warned, Sam’s insatiable hunger for halite cannot be tamed by anyone!

Claudia Tippett - Social Secretary
Claudia is one of our experienced barebow archers and the returning social secretary for the second year running. After organising some great events last year, we all have high expectations for this year coming, no pressure eh?
Always helpful and reliable, her car is the best place to be when driving up to a competition, and you might even get to see a picture or two of her pet budgies, Custard Cloud and Pepper!
Very much a quiet person, Claudia has really grown into a more confident personality this past year and that has been lovely to see. If you want to identify her, just look for a distinctive blonde plait, our very own Katniss.
