Happy Christmas to all

Happy Christmas to all readers and followers.

I hope you have an enjoyable festive season, with safe journeys and good weather. Good luck for 2015, may all your endeavours be on target.

2014 has been a busy year for us, with shoots up and down the country. We have visited some new grounds like Liberty and some visits to old friends like Spirit of Sherwood. Big thanks to all clubs that have hosted events we have attended, including those that spent weeks setting the Nationals and 3D courses.
Coaching has kept me busy and I’m delighted to have introduced some new people into the hobby of field archery. I’m sure they will continue to develop their skills.
I would also like to congratulate a certain young lady who I have the pleasure of being married to. Well done Sharon on winning not only the NFAS 3D championship in May but also the NFAS Nationals in Hunting Tackle class this year. I always knew you could.
This site too has grown as more shoot reports and reviews are added. I hope you have found them useful.
Thank you so much for all the support and contributions throughout this year. May I wish you all good luck for 2015.
As always thanks for reading.

Club meeting and photo shoot

Last week saw our clubs annual general meeting where the organising committee feedbacks to members and members have an opportunity to pose questions and raise concerns, elections taking place etc. If you are a member of all club I think it is important to attend these meetings to hear the discussions.

It also gives you the opportunity to raise questions and understand the work that goes on behind the scene.

Like last year the event was well attended with over 60 club members making the effort to attend.

The meeting also provided the opportunity for a photo session. As some readers will know at last year’s NFAS national championships the Severn Valley Yeoman Foresters club won a few trophies and this meeting provided the perfect opportunity for team members group photo.

So below is the bare bow team photo.

The other photo is of the 3 team trophies, the instinctive, bare bow and longbow with corresponding team members. Well done to all involved.

Longlife Squirrel Blitz…

Not a very serious posting today, but something I hope you will find funny.

Fellow blogger and archer Wolfie has done a very funny YouTube video review of Bearpaw 3D squirrel target. It had me in stitches and thought it worth sharing.

You can check out more of his videos on line here http://www.youtube.com/user/Wolfiesairbrush?feature=watch

I wonder if it was inspired by this which I’m not sure is a real trailer or enough spoof of a Squirrel Horror movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7U2aVUAqPI

Anyway nice one Wolfie.

Thanks for reading.
