Archery is more than just competitions

With all the run up to the 3d championships, the Sunday competitions round the country and week night practice, it can be easy to forget we do this this archery lark for fun.

Sure its nice to do well at shoots but at the end of the day if you have to enjoy the hobby too. For the last couple of weekends we haven’t booked onto any shoots and instead headed down the woods to have a shoot round.

We knew there would be a few people down the club enjoying the lovely weather so we took a few cakes too. This results in lots of conversations about the champs, recent shoots, how people are making up new arrows, along with life and non archery topics. Normally there is a heated debate about where to buy the best Jaffa cakes.

So I thought I would take a few photos, not so much of the shots but of the chatting and social aspect that is sometimes forgotten in the hobby.

So if you get a chance to go down to your practice ground or woods and just have a social shoot round then do it.
