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 paper faces. For the last couple of years it’s been a near 50/50 split of paper and 3D targets. This year also sees an increase to 40 targets on both days from the normal 36. Another development is the early start to registration on Sunday, which registration starting at 7 am and ending at 8 am. More details can be found on an earlier post or on the nfas website.

Sadly yet again this year I approach it feeling unprepared and not at full health. Maybe one year I might not fall victim to a flu bug or make the time to practise more in the run up to it. Yes I know what many of you might think, he’s just making excuses, he’ll be fine, he always shoots well.

Well let me just share these words of wisdom I read recently.

Practise breeds confidence, confidence breeds’ success.

I haven’t felt well enough to practise, so I am lacking confidence therefore not expecting success.

Anyway, enough of my moans, I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish good luck to all attending the event. Fingers crossed it will stay dry.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Hi Rob!

    Hope you shake the bug in time for Sat morning! Looking forward to my first champs for 17 years lol!

    It makes me look back on when I used to attend the champs year after year, all through the ’90s to when we would have a minimum of four courses to accommodate the amount of archers that wanted to shoot and registration was at 9am… times change.

    Anyway looking forward to seeing you both.
