Brixham Archers NFAS Open 23/09/18

A small but dedicated and hardy bunch of archers gathered to brave the elements and conditions, archers started arriving at 8am and were welcomed with the great smell of sausages and bacon and veggie options cooking away! The weather looked unpleasant at first, but the gathering went well and the lead outs and start were at 10 as planned (many thanks to the archers for being so well prepared!) From then on the weather and the day just got better! We felt we laid a tricky and technically demanding course, and this was the predominant feedback we got from the archers. As the sun came out and everyone’s spirits soared then the work of the last 18 months to get this shoot set up all seemed worth it! Archers rose to the challenge and shot very well. (more…)
