Brixham Archers’ NFAS Open 36x3Ds 08 Sept 2019   Recently updated !


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!

We decided to have our Catering in two places this year, and after the initial pre-shoot food, we decamped to a hut in the middle of the course to provide catering without any walk for the archers. This was hard but we managed and it was very well received.

The feedback from the archers was overwhelmingly positive and meant so much to all of our club, who have worked hard getting the course to fruition.  But let’s be honest, a field archery course is never truly finished and there are things we could do to improve it still, and we will, but to have some archers telling us it was one of the best field archery courses they have ever shot was mind-blowing!!

THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING, WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN…….NEXT TIME AROUND!
