The current executive members for LUAC for the 2016-17 academic year are:
Ellie Hayward-Stott - President
Hi folks, my name is Ellie and I'm your President this year. I'm responsible for the overall running of the club, so if you have any questions come and say hello, and I'll do what I can to help, or at least point you in the right direction. I've been shooting for a few years now both recurve and compound, and I can honestly say that archery is one of the most worthwhile things I've taken up; I'd recommend the sport to anyone, so if you ever need any help or advice about kit, shooting, life, or lobsters, feel free to come and have a chat - just look for the person running around like a headless chicken.

Naomi Smith - Safety and Equipment Officer
I'm blessed to have the job of doing whatever Jam tells me I should be doing... That will mostly be fletching arrows, I can tell already. So basically I'll be spending the year in the safety and equipment role and shooting Recurve. Don't shoot anyone and we'll be good. I'd like to think I'm approachable so don't be afraid to talk to me about equipment or anything else.
Recurve Portsmouth PB: 488
Metric 2 PB: 817
Cameron Thornton - social & Publicity
I'm the most miserable looking person in the club, therefore I'm in charge of how much fun everyone has, Basically I organise the events and trips we may or may not go on and I made a decent poster or two [This was written in advance], if there's anything you wanna do just ask me and I'll take any ideas I'm given, have fun, play safe, tip your waiter.
Jay Tserkezie - Captain
Hey, this is your Captain speaking, I am a third year Mathematics student who started archery in my fresher's week. I could go on for pages about how great this club and sport is but I'm on a word limit so just come along and you'll see!
I have the riveting job of organising all internal and external competition related things for the club. I also would like to make everyone, new and old, amazing archers so we can win everything so please come and pester me if you want to improve, I'm easy to spot as I am now the only one with a bright magenta bow (It's meant to be purple...)
I'm also required to brag about the fact I am the only club member with a BUCS medal; however we were expecting that to change this year!

Tom Wilson - Training and Development
Hi folks! My name's Tom and I'm your Training and Development Officer for this year. Firstly I want to welcome you to the club and secondly I want to invite all of you to come and join in our sport. I've been shooting now for approximately 12 years and I've loved every minute of it. I'm really passionate about this sport and want to get everyone enjoying it as much as i do, so if you ever need me just come and find me at a shoot and I'll be happy to help.

Jack Keates - Secretary
Good day! My name is Jack, and I will be your resident secretary for the year. I study computer science, do archery, fencing, and
a couple of other society things in my spare time. I started archery when I joined this club (October 2014) and did some winning
of things during my novice year. My role as secretary is to document the minutes of the exec. meetings, collect the club's post, and help out the other exec. members with various tasks. Apart from fulfilling the role of secretary, I serve as the club's
un-official gentleman and part-time rogue. If you would to like ask me any questions on starting out as a novice, joining in competitions, or anything related to that, feel free to send your questions my way (since I was a novice last year, I might remember what it was like!). One last thing, don't touch my kidney!

Dom Belcher - TREASURER
Matthew "Polkadot" Threlfall - Webmaster
Heyo! They call me Polkadot around here and I try my best to shoot arrows at a target. I handle the website around here and try my best to keep communication up around the club. If you ever see me shoot a compound, I'm too lazy to put my recurve up...
