Yes! Spring is here and the cakes are back for the first end of the month shoot of the season. We're breaking ourselves in nice and gently with some Warwicks (that's four dozen arrows at short and longer distances, with the big faces back on the bosses.) It should be a good introduction to shooting rounds for our recent completing beginners and a way to warm up the bows for reclassifying and submitting scores.
Hope to see a good turn out on the line tomorrow - the weather promises to be dry, we think.

Now that spring is very nearly here Aardwolf have organised the first Beginners Course of the year! There's still time to get involved if you want to learn about archery and get the basic skills and knowledge to start a very fun sport.

Since the weather is turning a bit chillier we will be shooting the shorter Warwick round for our end of month club shoot. That is 2 dozen arrows at one distance and 2 dozen arrows at the next shortest distance (the longest distance being the one you are confident shooting at). As ever cakes and medals available - See you there!.

The end of month shoot for August 28th will be Windsors. Distances to suit all ages and abilities, tea, cakes and some medals up for grabs as usual. As a Windsor is 3 sets of 3 dozen arrows at 3 distances this is a great chance to get in some 252's as well as a formal round!

Members have been out, managed to find us at the new site and so far feedback is positive. Here's a few photos from the first couple of sessions. Hopefully we'll see those who haven't been able to make it so far very soon!

We've been busy at the new field today getting things marked out so everything is all set for our first shoot at the new site tomorrow (19 August). The cabins open, the equipment is intact and from the picture you can see Martin and Shaun testing out a couple of targets at 60 & 100 yards - just to make sure all is in working order! The field looks lovely and we hope to see as many of you as possible down at the new site.

The cabins were successfully moved today and are now safely at our new location at Handsworth Grange Community College. Our new field is at the back and marked on the map. Parking will be available on the field eventually, but please do bear with us as with all new things and freshly moved homes we won't have everything sorted out perfectly just yet!
