Early spring weekend activity

In one quiet less muddy corner of the car park there were a few signs of spring.
Whilst at the wood this weekend helping to prepare for next month shoot we bumped into a couple of friends Irene and David walking off the course having been down to the wood early.
In hand was an example of good grouping. Dave had been shooting his compound bow at the target but lost sight of where the arrow hit so thought he’d have another go.

The result a “Robin Hood” on the first arrow.

If you look closely you can see the carbon threads. Good shooting Dave though a bit costly on the old arrow front.
Just a quick note to Chris, Keith, Badger and Denzil. Well done guys on getting the new B course up and running over the weekend, 20 new shots all set up in 2 days is great going.

Also thanks to other members of the club who helped laying gravel on the entrance path  (50 odd bags of it) along with the 2 bags of hard core that went on filling in the ruts in the car park. Really good to see so many members helping out.
Thanks for reading.

Early Spring – or just a dry day

After all the bad weather Britain has been having for the last few months (see my earlier post here) It was great to get out and not only be dry but also in the sun.

Today we managed to get out and shoot (though I only managed a short round having spent 4 hours using a chainsaw cutting up a fallen tree on Saturday)

The tree after 4 hours of work.

What was amazing was the difference the work down earlier in the year to drainage tracks has made. A few weeks ago the bridges were nearly underwater today things were a lot better.

Slightly less water now

I’ll return to posting on course laying shortly, I just thought a view of better weather might cheer people up.

Thanks for reading.
