Ryan...

Well moderated, not just for general privacy but also for spam bots.

 

My experience of archery was long ago and almost as unsuccessful as it could have been. An arrow went through my upper lip, split one tooth vertically, knocked another sideways and ultimately stuck into the back of my throat. I felt like a Dalek. I should stress that this was nothing to do with the club and was plain stupid. Ryan told me that had the arrow been fired by one of their composite bows it would probably have come out the back of my head :?

Was there an apple on top of your head?

:-) No, but what was on top of my head was no less ridiculous. I was wearing a "knights helmet" which has a woolly tassle on top at the end of a boingy spring. As the arrow went through the visor it meant the helmet could not be removed. As I said, very Dalek'ish. I still have both the helmet and arrow.

Shetland Archery Club shoots on Tuesdays 8-10pm and Fridays 7.30-10pm at Gilbertson Park Games Hall during the winter and at Seafield during the summer.

 

Anyone interested please let me know or come along to the club, new members always welcome. The club has all the equipment required and regularly runs beginners courses.
