REPORT: During 18-20th of July in 2008, we have represented HKU to take part in THAILAND PRINCESS CUP ARCHERY 08, 11TH TOAC OPEN. Locally, it has been the third time HKU team has won the Hong Kong

University of Science and Technology Indoor Archery Competition consecutively which is the only local competition with University Team category for University Team to compete. Last year, we have even won the 8th Hong Kong Post-Secondary School Indoor Archery Championship upon our first time of participation. This HKU team is selected based on the Intra-University Team competition among our University Team in which we have got the highest ranking. Two of us, namely Chan Wai To and Ma Hing Kin are advanced level archers with local ranking of 19th and 17th respectively in which there are less than 5 university students has achieved to this stage of attainment among HK. Both of us have awarded the player of the year among these years in the Presentation day conducted by the Sports Association and we have won more than thirteen local competitions with both individual championship or team champion since we have entered HKU. Another one of us, namely So Chun Fai who has also won several prizes in local competition and play an important role in team competition. We have been winning the Annual Intervarsity Game with CUHK for years and perhaps we are one of the team among all HKU team that has been winning AIG for more than 10 years time without any single defeated story. It was a really precious chance for our team archers who could take part in this overseas competition especially representing our own


university instead of participating with our own individual name. On the first day, we have arrived at Bangkok and I have attended the team captain meeting. The meeting was held at the training centre called Archery Thai. It is an outdoor training centre in which archers could shoot from day to night as lighting is provided upon request and there is a little kiosk shop which could provide some food for archers if they order. At another day, we woke up early in the morning and attend the opening ceremony and start our qualification round. The arrangement of the organizer was really great and fabulous that athletes were granted with a huge hall for equipment set up and rest. Altogether there were about 262 archers taken part in the competition and in the qualification round, each archer shot for 30 arrows and our score and rank was as follows Name

After the ranking round, our HKU team has got 748 in total and we have got the 6th place out of the 19 University team. For team elimination round, each team had to shoot 6 arrows for 4 rounds, 24

arrows in total. For the first elimination round, it was a BYE for our team and we have entered the 1/8. Then we faced a local Thai University team. We have then shot the 3rd best score for all team elimination round of 207 out of the possible 240 point and we defeated the Thai University team by 32 points. Then in the 1/4 round, due to some influence on the failure of the equipment, but we still aim the target and shot the arrow without noticing the problem, thus some of our arrows didn’t hit the target as we expected and we lost some points in the 2nd round. We then quickly noticed what the problem was and fixed it. And we have then tried our utmost to shoot as concentrate as possible when we faced the strong Singaporean University team (NTU). However, we got eliminated for 4 points in which we shot 198 and they shot for 202. The champion and 1st and 2nd runner-up for the University Team category is from KUAC1 from มหาวิทยาลัยเกษตรศาสตร์ of Thailand and NTU and NUS from Singapore.

It was the first time that the University has sent U team to take part in overseas international archery competition. The HKU has ranked the sixth out of the 19 University teams all around the world. We have shot the 3rd best team elimination score of 207 out of the possible 240 among all University archery teams. They have even defeated other foreign University team by 32 points.

擺設。加上引人注目的木弓及金屬弓,務求讓途人對本會有一定 的印象。 適逢本屆奧運中國射箭隊張娟娟奪得桂冠,掀起了一陣射箭熱潮, 有不少人認識甚至對射箭產生興趣,實為射箭界之福。

零八至零九年度箭會活動回顧 O’Period 文:Carrian 每年暑假舉行的迎新活動不但是廣大新鮮人的大事,亦是各會社 增加知名度、招收會員、推廣來年活動的黃金時段。本會 Exco 亦把 握機會,努力把射箭這門運動普及至新鮮人中。 今年的攤位 以靶紙為主題: 四周以多張 122cm 靶紙覆 蓋,上方則 橫列’紅綠燈’, 桌上有箭靶 形狀手工藝小

不過,本屆迎新日我們卻遭到不能預料的挑戰: 迎新日由往年的 三日改為兩日,而經抽籤後我們不幸地得不到八月份的攤位時段; 迎新日首日反應一般:只有十三位新生成為會員,比去年二十 多位新會員的成績有段距離。幸運地,從第二天起情況有改善, 開學後更大為改善,整個迎新時段合計有 135 位新會員。有此成 績,除了各 Exco 們的付出外,亦多得多位老鬼落力支持,在此 一併致謝。


O’Day 文:Mark 本會一年一度之迎新活動,O’ Day 已於九月中順利舉行。此活動 為各位「新來新豬肉」的會員提供互相認識的機會,還可以初次體 驗射箭樂趣。 當日重點就是下午的 Checkpoint Games——偵探遊戲!我們很高 興邀請了多位「老鬼」為我們提供了聲音,錄製了多段聲帶,精心 炮製了一個「模擬偷竊事件」(鄭重聲明,此乃模擬事件,與本 會立場無關(笑))。參加會員分成數組,巡遊多個 Checkpoints 並完成任務,當然包括在 Robert Black Tennis Court 的「射氣球遊 戲」啦!完全一個任務後,組員們就得到聽聲帶摘筆記的機會… …

完成所有 Checkpoint Games,然後就是 Show Time!各組把筆記 整理好,把「模擬偷竊事件」 「案件重演」,就是戲劇表演了。各組 用了千奇百怪的猜測,作了風趣生動的表演,大家都非常投入。 晚餐後就是 Mass Games 了,有射箭會的特色遊戲,包剪的變 種「弓箭靶」;有用八國語言特別製作的「以訛傳訛國際版」。大家 都玩得非常盡興呢! 快樂的時間過得快,又是時候講拜拜!經過了大半天的 O’ Day, 各新會員除了玩得愉快高興,也增加了互相的感情。希望下年都 有一個出色的迎新活動吧!


雖然身為 PIC 的我每次 Training Course 都要出席, 要付出好多的 私人時間(因為住得遠, 車程都好長),學業方面也付出了多少(尤 其在 sem 1 時有 3 班),不過,我仍然喜歡 Training Course。因為 在代價之後,都能得到相應的回報。除了個人的自我滿足之外, 亦為本會提供新血,令箭會得以延續。在薪火相傳的責任之前, 那一點點的付出根本就微不足道,何況又不只是自己一個在付出, 每想到各位 helpers 同上莊都義不容辭地落力幫助,自己就不得 不更全力以赴。在此讓我感謝為 Training Course 勞心勞力的各位。 最近,第二期訓練班也完滿結束,意味著自己將退下來,難免有 點不捨。不過,長江後浪推前浪,就讓我們好好期待下落的活躍 表現,為箭會帶來新氣象。

Training Course 文: Ken 這是我覺得最重要的活動, 因為每年的 Training Course 都為過 百位新手作培訓, 為他們的箭藝之路打好基礎,另外也為 Archery Club 的前途作出貢獻。Training Course 亦是我最愛的活動 看著 freshman 在努力學習, 開心快樂地享受射箭的樂趣, 心中 自然興奮莫名,自己更是想射箭(大概也是 Training Course 那段 期間射得少),想去進步升級。


Archery Festival

文: Tiffany 1 月 15 日 (星期 四) 我們於柏立 基網球場舉行了 射箭示範,讓同 學們有機會一賞


校隊的箭藝亦得一嘗射箭的樂趣。 那天,我們邀請了小寶、阿 Zinc 和細馬示範射箭的姿態並表演在 30 米靶射同學們指定的氣球。雖然其間某位隊員(殊…:P)顯得 老貓燒鬚,以微差射失,但仍引起同學對箭技的驚嘆和射箭的興 趣。 接着,我們讓同學們在指導下嘗試射箭。起初大家都有點兒雞手 鴨 腳, 但 很 快 便 熟 練 起 來。 最 後, 我們以射氣球比賽作結。 恭喜勝出的隊伍! 活動在一片歡樂中結束 :)


第十八屆香港大學射箭公開賽 文::Johnny


新秀組亞軍,及女子反曲弓初級組亞軍,可喜可賀。 一年一度的香港大學射箭公開賽於11月16日在何鴻燊體育中 心一號場舉行,射手反應熱烈,報名人數遠超預期。除開設反曲 弓高、中、初、新秀組等香港射箭總會認可之項目外,本會亦同時 開辦學生組別。總參賽人數為歷年之冠,約一百五十人,達場地 可容納的上限,可見射箭運動於香港越趨普及。 當天天氣晴朗,間有微風,相當適合進行賽事。本會特別準備多 傘太陽傘,供射手遮陰。由於比賽場地與食肆有一定距離,本會 亦提供午餐飯盒代訂服務,為參加者提供不少方便。雖然總會沒 有相關規定,但各位工作人員即時檢查分數,計算總分,使比賽 進程更加順暢。憑主場之利,本會兩位射手分別奪得男子反曲弓

本會在此多謝各位射手踴躍參加,支持是次賽事,以及各位工作 人員的努力,使比賽得以順利完成。


Fun Nite 文:Carrian Training Course 除了令學員認識基本的射箭技巧外,還讓很多素 未謀面的、來自五湖四海的 (當中有不少交換生) 同學相識了。由 Training Course 時間緊迫,因此不能有太多的 free time 吹水,增 進感情,本會一如以往,在 Training Course 將完結前舉辦一個 casual 的聚會 – Fun Nite. 今年的 Fun Nite 因 CYM 302 被租用而改為在 CYM 105 (鏡房)舉 行,位置有點難找,但面積更寬敞,可謂好壞參半。 食物一向都是 Fun NIte 的最大開支,為了節省成本,Exco 們有 的充當大廚,有的放膽到各大食肆 mark sponsor,當晚的膳食反 應不錯,自然多得 Exco 們的努力及各餐廳的慷慨支持。 當晚的遊戲有踩汽球、有口難言(粵語版、國語版、英語版)。而另一 重頭環節是小寶主持的分享會,他大方公開大量個人照片,加上 他的講解,生動地描述了他的射手生涯,對有志射箭的會員(及 Exco 們) 都有所得 。只須十元便有一餐晚餐、一些歡樂的時間和一 個有深度的分享,絕對物超所值!


Intra-club competition 文:Mark 本年度箭會最後一個活動,Intra-Club Competition 已於二月中舉 行。作為會內的友誼賽,此活動給與各會員增進感情及技術交流 的機會。 比賽形式為 18 米「紅綠燈」,30 箭定勝負。 「紅綠燈」由於靶面小, 而且需要把箭分佈在上中下三個靶上,所以需要一定的技術。各 位老射手射得得心應手,但有些新射手就比較吃力,難免「M & M」的情形了。 每組頭三名的射手可獲得一張獎狀,而冠軍同時獲得一包零食。 雖然最後分出勝負,不過,比賽第二,友誼第一。比賽後大家有


講有笑,一起分享零食,Intra-Club Competition 就此圓滿結束。
