South Bucks Archery Big Weekend
South Bucks Archers archery club hosted an Archery Big Weekend event on Sunday and invited budding bowmen and aspiring archers to come and try out archery, many for the first time.
The club ran a number of ½ hour taster sessions which proved to be a big success with men, women and children of all ages keen to pick up a bow and aim for gold.
Club spokesperson, Mary Blumbergs, said “It was great to see so many people come and have a go at archery. Our experienced archers supervised members of the public who shot over 450 arrows between them. We had a wonderful time sharing our passion for archery on a lovely summer’s day.
The Archery Big Weekend is a nationwide initiative by Archery GB that encourages archery clubs to open their doors to the public to raise awareness of the sport. This is the first time we’ve taken part and we were amazed at how much local interest there was."
South Bucks Archers welcomes new members who must first undertake a beginners’ course before joining. For more details visit http://www.southbucksarc
