    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I didn't mean to sound harsh, it's just that the club has quite an old demographic; we have quite a few members who come along to the AGM, and maybe make an effort for the occasional fun shoot, still think of themselves as archers, but you don't see them on the course very often. And they are...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I read the statement again and I'm not sure if AGB is expecting all members to renew in September, or whether members will renew when their club reopens.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    Well the NFF is carrying on much as before, just that we need to distance and practice hygene whilst on the course. There are no shoots, but if you're happy to go out and shoot the course on your own or with the same partner all the time, you're fine. The NFF doesn't have the commitments of...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    The reason that I asked if the 50% figure felt accurate is that I can't help thinking that, if true, a 15% drop in renewals seems highly optomistic. It suggests that 70% of the members of closed clubs will altruistically pay their fees to AGB. With the best will in the world I can't see that...

    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    I can't see how or why it would work, but more power to him for trying it out. I've got an odd xl limb in the attic that I always thought would be fun to pair with an odd short limb from somewhere to make an ilf yumi. But I never came across a free limb to try it with. And I didn't want to...

    And it talks about a 15% drop in renewals. I think that's optomistic. I wouldn't like to be the club secretary of one of the 50% asking for fees to not shoot.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    Does anyone have a feeling for how many clubs are up and running yet? This makes a vague statement of about 50% won't open soon.

    Counterfeit Easton arrows?

    One difference was that the spine is now etched on the shaft rather than being printed on the shaft in alcohol soluble ink right where the wrap ends, which I thought was a massive improvement, seeing as I have both 400s and 500s.

    Counterfeit Easton arrows?

    I noticed that the design of the printing on my last batch of FMJs was subtly redesigned. I just assumed that the logo had had a slight refresh.

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    All kidding aside, it seems to me that the manufacturers could address the problem by making carbon arrows detectable, for example by embedding something detectable into the weave. Or is this problem something specific to the UK?

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    Maybe rather than a strip of aluminium, you could use a thin tube and it would add strength. And maybe the manufacturer could be encouraged to include it during the manufacturing process. Oh, hang on a minute....

    That is brilliant thinking!

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    You could just glue the foil on without the wraps and have awesome shiny arrows...

    Carbon arrows for non all-carbon arrow competitions

    Not wanting to be a wet blanket but I would have thought that the spirit of the rule would be for you to be able to find all the bits of the arrow after it breaks after hitting a target leg?

    Please change the rule book
