The Club's 29th Annual General Meeting was held on 18th May 2011 at the Bath Arms Hotel, Cheddar. At the conclusion of business the Club's President, Vera Lee, was invited by the Chairman to present awards to those successful in the past year's Club Competitions.
The winners were:

The Battle of the Sexes was won by the men two matches to one.
Medals for the best scores on a monthly basis by individuals in the 2010/11 Somerset County winter leagues were awarded to - A team, Mike Griffin three and Keith Thickett one; B team, Dave Oatley three and Tom Paisey one.
In the Bristol & District leagues - A team, Dave Oatley two; B team, Bob Abbott and Barry Scott one each.
After the ballot for the "coveted" Wooden Spoon the popular recipient was Keith Thickett. The Club Captain then recounted "incidents" occurring during the winter season and probably best forgotten by the members involved. Two, however, were both problems with rifle sights and chose to award "Bent Bullets" to Ruth Bell and Dave Oatley.
