Message to all readers and followers – Thank you

Thank you

Thank you

Just wanted to say thank you to all the followers and readers of this blog. I’ve been quite humbled over recent months when archers at shoots have come up to me and say “Are you Rob? I read your blog
Or as was the case a few days ago I received a a lovely email saying thank you for all the work that goes into writing the articles and editing the photos. So thanks, it’s great to know that people find my ramblings enjoyable and useful.
I will apologise to all of you if I don’t have the time at shoots to chat at length but please know I’m really grateful. I felt quite guilty at the Paget de Vasey shoot when in the food que the person next to me said he read the blog and got into field archery because of it. I would have loved to chat further but has to take Sharon her drink or I’d have been in real trouble.
Thank you all for reading and contributions.

200 posts

July 2011 I started this site not being entirely certain as to what I wanted to say or how it might develop, all I knew was I wanted to express my thoughts on my hobby of archery. Little did I think that over time it would grow to this the  200th post.

It hasn’t been plain sailing and over the past few years I’ve had a few rough times where I have thought about giving up writing or even archery. For that reason I would like to take the opportunity to thank my followers and friends for the support they showed me, especially Sharon who has been amazing.

This site has grown over the years to include write ups of shoots we have attended, links to other peoples blogs and websites. This site has chronicled my progress from newbie archer to coach along with highlighting my friends and fellow archers successes.

I’ve written a few book reviews and given my thoughts and hopefully some useful information on things to consider when course laying.

I’ve not written many equipment reviews but there have been a few and I’ve got plans for a few more. Along with these, have been my thoughts, feelings and ponderings on all matters of archery.
I hope you have found my writing interesting and helpful.

Over the years I’ve learned a lot and taken a lot from the sport, some good some not so good. If I’ve learnt nothing else from his hobby is it’s a sport where you can challenge yourself and set your own targets, pardon the obvious pun. Whilst winning medals or placing is nice it is a hobby where you can challenge yourself and have your own goals. Even after all these years I still go out hoping not to blank a target and I’ve never done a one arrow round.
Sharon and I have met many people and some over the years have gone on to become friends.
We’ve traveled from one end of the country to another for shoots and championships.

So I’d just like to say to all of you, thank you for reading.
