Shooting a comp the other day I noticed two guys shooting with frameless, armless sunglasses. These were tied on around the back of the head with a lace.
Does anyone know what make they might have been?
I know that AGB will not allow you to down claim badges, so if you shoot a 1100 York you cannot then use further scores to get the badges below that mark. Same principle with FITA awards.
Is this just due to cost control and not wanting to hand out badges?
I read on Archery Ireland website...
This may sound weird.....!
I shot my first FITA at the weekend. Down to 50m I'd rather forget it! Bow arm all over the place.
At 30m I got my mojo back (I'm 37 handicap outdoors, 27 indoors), average arrow score just a tad under 9.
The feeling I found felt rock solid. Bow arm and sight did...
Does anybody have contact details for anyone in Crowthorne Archers? I have been on the website and it has loads of names but no phone numbers or email addresses that I can see.
I'm interested to shoot as a visitor as I am working nearby for a few months.
I have made a few strings now with reasonable success...

Any help or experience welcome! Ta.
After finishing my beginners course last October, this summer has been my first outdoors.
Shot a double FITA 70 today at Stafford, getting a 459 and 499. Only needed one of these to capture my first First Class. Just missed out on a FITA Target Award too. :-(
Next year's target Bowman!
When I went to watch the UK Masters, there were a number of people who had nice long plaited binocular straps.
These would nicely hang the binos by the hip / bum, when worn over the shoulder.
Anyone know where to get them?
I have been searching the net but have not managed to find them...
Went to my first comp yesterday with my son. It was just a local small shoot and very informal and friendly.
We shot a Warwick. Scored 692 which I was happy with, after 9 months shooting and this being my first outdoor season.
Everyone was friendly and the judge had a fine old time with the...
I am about to make my first string.
I intend to do all serving left to right going over the top of the string.
With string on the bow and top to the right I will do the same for the center serving.
Twisting the string onto the bow looking up the string I will twist in an anti clockwise...
I am wondering if anyone has used Dyneema or Spectra fishing line as a string material? If so how did you go on?
Cost wise it is significantly cheaper than the line sold as bow string. It seems a very similar product.
Please feel free to say the idea is insane!!
