    Longbow arrows

    How do you choose?

    Hi all For those of you that compete. Do you attend the same comps every year? Do you only compete in a set amount? Do weekend comps make more sense to you? How do you decide which comps to shoot at? Any other factors. This is so I can get an idea how we can promote our competition. Cheers
