    Victory VAP elite 400 spine test

    I've used them in the past and they've been ok. It'd phone them up and have a chat.

    Slow delivery from online archery shop

    Whenever this has been raised before the consensus has been that shops need to be honest about what is in stock, honest about what the lead times are for non-stock items, and to communicate with the buyers when something goes wrong. People can be very accommodating when they feel that they are...

    Victory VAP elite 400 spine test

    That's not great. Mind you, companies can be very variable in this regard. I've had replies from Bohning by return of email but I'm still waiting for a return from Brownell after about 7 years. Who was the retailer?

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I did the AGB survey and it made me think about stuff and brought a few things home to me. Realistically my club probably isn't going to shoot again until the start of next year's outdoor season - by the time the rugby club opens it'll likely be too dark in the evenings and the school isn't...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    AGB released the latest yearbook a few days ago: https://www.archerygb.org/archery-gb-launches-yearbook-2019-2020/ which as usual shows what they have been doing over the past year and where they spend the money.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    It does not seem unreasonable to me that, if you want to shoot at a specific club and that club has chosen to affiliate to AGB, that you have to join AGB. Having said that, it does seem to me that AGB seems to want to operate as a closed shop. It seems to want to deliberately exclude archers...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    Me too. I think that it would create first and second class citizens. And you're right - it would create a barrier to competition entry.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I'm not getting at you, but I'd like to offer a different viewpoint: It's the clubs that let you do that; AGB only provides insurance that costs about £1 a year The coaches give you the coaching, which they themselves pay to gain qualifications in, which they expend their own time and...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    Tiered membership is a nice idea but I don't know if it would work. AGB would need to eviscerate it's programs to give a meaningful reduction in fees and at the end of the day it'd still be a drop in the ocean of total shooting fees. Fifty quid a year isn't a long way from what other governing...

    Well obviously they'd show the beach volleyball 😁 Obviously I speak as an ex-volleyball player and have no other reason for saying this.......

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I really don't think that's true to any great extent. I think that more people turn up at beginner courses because they watched Robin Hood on telly as a child, or collected Green Arrow comics, or Hunger Games is on at the cinema, or Brave on DVD. Or they went to a have a go or tried it out at...

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    I've never been convinced that money spent on elite competitors and competitions is money well spent. It's great for the competitors involved and it causes a blip in national pride in the case of a win, but is that enough? It's always touted that competitions like the Olympics raise...

    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    Me too. I'd love to see a video of his bow in action.

    Longbow - the easy choice ?

    Is that right? I always assumed stiffer. But I have absolutely no experience or knowledge to back that up.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    Personally I spend the whole indoor season wishing we were back outside. I tell myself things like "work on your form" but to be honest I'm only there for the craic.

    AGB Membership Fees 20/21

    At the target club we usually get more people shooting in winter too as we also shoot in a school gym then. I'm not sure if and when we will get access to that this winter though.

    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.
