Lots happening despite the weather!

Supporting our Community

On the Thursday we hosted 6 teams of GirlGuides for a fun evening of team and individual challenges, supported by a group of our coaches.

The following day saw 13 visiting Primary School Teams of 9 archers, from the Gloucester District, programmed in across the day to record Level 2 qualification scores. The weather was so bad, they shot from the covered shooting area throughout the day ensuring that the event remained on and was a positive experience!

A couple of days later we hosted a have-a-go session from a local rambling club, this time our indoor area came to the rescue as the weather was again rubbish!

2 Day 3D Field Archery Tournament – A fantastic success!

Lots of variety and plenty of challenge!

A separate report will cover the detail but to summarise, it was fully booked, the feedback was amazing, the course challenging but fair, we learnt a lot and our passion to arrange future events even greater!

A fantastic environment to spend a weekend.

Beginners Courses

Our Training Centre rescued us again on Monday evening when very wet and blustery weather again forced us indoors, all 25 candidates concentrated on developing their skills and not on survival!
