Coaching weekend

Busy time last weekend, but no shooting. I was corunning a two day course for prospective coaches in the society.

Two days from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. of coach training, covering everything from conducting risk assessments, venue consideration, developing observation skills and their practical assessments.

My thanks to fellow trainers Steve and Bernie, along with support from John.

Good luck to our students as they now have the written assessment to complete.

Richard Head Longbows video – Reusing arrow heads and points

There is an old saying “Great minds think alike.” The problem is the second part of that phrase is “fools seldom differ.” Some of you might recall I wrote an article in September 2015 giving  advice on removing broken wooden arrow tips from inside your arrow pile.
Well Richard Head Longbows have produced a video on their channel on how they suggest to remove piles which is worth a view. (
Their process is slightly different but works just as well. One additional thing is if you use either method make sure you clean the inside of the pile, removing any glue residue before reusing it.
By the way I’m going with the great minds think alike.
