The University of Sunderland’s Archery club hosted only their second ever event last weekend, but Daniel Simmons is hoping they can host more competitions in the future.
The NEAUL meet with Huddersfield and Lancaster was the first event Sunderland had hosted this season, and equipment officer Simmons has caught the hosting bug and has big plans for Sunderland to be the ‘hostess with the mostest’ in the near future.
He said: “I think it would be brilliant for Sunderland to host more competitions over the rest of this year and for many years to come.
“The more competitions we can host, the better we will get at planning and running them.”
His enthusiasm didn’t stop there, with his job as Equipment Officer involving ordering new equipment, he spoke about solving the equipment conundrum club secretary, and founder, Andrew Ingleby highlighted earlier on in the season.
“With the club looking to host more competitions over the rest of this year, I have added 6 bosses to the order for this year, which we hope will go through soon,” explained Simmons.
With Sunderland adding more equipment to their arsenal, Simmons spoke about the possibility of hosting future events and remarked that the future could see them host key events such as the BUCS indoor championships or the British University Team Championships.
He said: “Eventually we may even be able to host a competition like BUCS or BUTC, but that won’t be for a year or two yet.”
