The Big Indoors BAFTA Month and Doing Those Warm Ups

Dear Archers,

The Big Indoors

We're all at once indoors and out. For those who continue to enjoy the field, bravo. It's been very windy of late but on the occasion that I'm there on the field, I often meet up with folk who are braving the weather. Remember that the shooting shed is there for shelter and can support some excellent archery, simply by getting you out of the challenging weather.

But, enough, we're also indoors and it's looking great. Easton College have welcomed us and we've shot there a couple of times now. There is plenty of room for us with the range being around 20 metres wide and 30 metres long. At present we are shooting just 18 metres but we'll move the bosses back and forth depending on what archers would like to do.

BAFTA Month - Bring A Friend To Archery

We noticed that with a recent straw poll, quite a few of our archers came to archery through being introduced by other club members. So, why not have a Bring a Friend To Archery Month. We know how much we love it so why not share that love.

Doing Those Warm Ups

We all need to warm up. No, really we do. Now, whilst I'm not the best at remembering to warm up others' I do warm up myself and really it is all our responsibility to make sure we are ready to shoot our bows safely, without injury to our bodies. Here is a brief video from Naomi Faulkard. She is a fantastic archer, Scottish and has represented the UK on numerous occasions. As you will see she is a gentle individual who just wants us to shoot to the best of our abilities. Go on, see how she does it and enjoy warming up when you get to archery. If you're feeling a little shy, just tag along with others and get into the swing making sure you're ready to shoot.
