New Field Archery Clubs

Recently I was contacted by one of my followers, Alan Holland concerning a new archery club.
Alan along with some friends have set up a field archery club, the Bowmen Of Salcey based in the Milton Keynes and Northampton area of the UK. I’ve not had chance to visit yet but hope to do so soon.
Details of this club can be found on their website. http://bowmenofsalcey.webs.com/
Also Woodend Field Archers have recently been set up by Martin Cotterill in Nottinghamshire. Martin if you are reading this just mind your fingers, you know why 😉 As yet I don’t have a website. There first shoot is in a couple of weeks so good luck, wish I could make it.
Both clubs are NFAS registered and I’d like to wish them all the best of luck.
It’s really great to see new clubs appearing across the country promoting field archery and if you want to find out details of other clubs in your area have a look on the NFAS website. http://www.nfas.net/clubs.asp
Thanks for reading.

Finding help

Happy Easter everyone, I hope you have all had your fill of easter eggs and festivities.

Recently Jordan wrote on her blog site  (http://jordansequillion.wordpress.com/2013/03/22/getting-information/) an article on organisations and societies for the newbie, that’s inspired me to do something similar for the UK.

I can’t list every club in the UK but I can point you towards some useful websites so here goes a few.

nfasNFAS – National Field Archery Society –  http://www.nfas.net/

UK based organisation, which we shoot in most months, there is a good list of clubs and if you want you can find a shoot every weekend.

 

efaaEFAA – English Field Archery Associationhttp://www.efaafieldarcher.com/ Thought I was a member briefly I have never had the opportunity to shoot under the EFAA banner but know many people who do.

 

archerygbArchery GBhttp://www.archerygb.org/ As the sites says Archery GB is the governing body for sports archery in the Great Britain and Ireland.

Another useful site is the Archery Interchange, http://www.archeryinterchange.com/ with its extensive forums offering advice on all things archery related.
