The first iteration of this list is now available, dates for your new diary!
Thanks to Whitburn Archers for hosting the shoot, and to everyone who supported the shoot. Congrats to all the winners.
Dearne Valley Archery Club hosted a Field Taster on 11th November with 25 archers attending on a bright and sunny day, even though it was a little chilly!
There was a lot of positive feedback, attendees asking when the next taster is and a few archers also asked to become associate members. Dearne Valley are planning to run more taster sessions in the new year – watch this space!
Thank you to all archers for supporting the taster event and to Dearne Valley for hosting the taster linked to the NCAS Field Subgroup.
In case you missed it – bookings are now open on Sport 80 for the NCAS Coaching Conference on Sunday 21st January 2024
One of the first taster sessions organised by the Cheshire Field rep Stuart Walsh (as part of the NCAS Field Subgroup) took part at New Century with 10 archers taking part. It was a perfect day weather wise and everyone who came really enjoyed it, so much so everyone wanted to go round again after lunch, and that’s what they did!
Sounds like a resounding success – keep your eyes peeled for further Field taster sessions 🏹
