NFAS National Championships 2018

Centaura Bowmen’s ground is over an hour drive from home on a good day, so it would be an early start for us to make sure we got there in good time. It is a ground we know quite well, situated outside Derby. For those interested you can read a previous shoot report here.

As it was it would be a warm and pleasant early autumn day, with great company as we were joined by the…

Good luck for NFAS nationals

Good luck for NFAS nationals

So the National Field Archery Society, national championships are just round the corner. I always see this as the culmination of the NFAS calendar of events.

For those unfamiliar with the format of the championships, it is a two day event where competitors shoot 2 different courses over unmarked distances. A couple of difference to this year’s event sees the competition going back to being solely…

Firstly before I start this shoot report I along with Sharon would like to say a huge thanks to a wonderful host Karen for putting us up for the night and for the great Bar-B-Que on Saturday night before the shoot. The grounds are quite a long drive for us, so being able to stay over the night before was great. Anyway back to the important thing for you, the shoot report.

I am going to start this shoot report with an apology directed to the course layers and members of Druids. In writing this shoot report I realise that I never published last years report of Druids 2 day shoot. Oops, sorry. It was a great two day shoot and deserved a shoot report, so I am sorry for not completing the report for last years.

Following my recent article highlighting the vandalism and thefts at Redoubtables club, along with the countless people sharing the Facebook posts and images, there has been a positive outcome.

The club has reported that the majority of the equipment has been recovered and…
