Due to the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent Government advice, Brixham Archers have no choice but to cancel Sundays’ open field shoot. All participants have been informed by email. Our next planned shoot will be in September and we will still be taking bookings for this. Stay safe.
We had 60 entrants for this shoot, but unfortunately, we had a number of cancellations due to injuries and illness: get well soon! So on a lovely September’s morning, 54 archers took to our newly laid course.
They were greeted with the smell of good quality sausages/bacon/eggs and coffee/tea and vegetarian options, we were blessed with good shooting weather and the shoot got underway. The club has been working hard digging in routes and steps, so although our course is “undulating” (!) all archers of all ages were able to traverse the course and enjoy the shots…….I say, ‘enjoy the shots’……..; we created a technically tricky and testing course to hopefully test all archers’ skill, (our course has been completed by a 9-year-old with a bow drawing less than 12#s), so it’s not about long stretched shots but more about finding the window, adjusting your stance, avoiding the trees and going for it!(more…)
