Hi Marcus, spare a thought for the poor Welsh then, we need a shooting line cover to stay dry! Mind you we've had up to 30 degrees all of this week!:beer: :beer:
I cant believe we would be able to do anything like that here in the UK. Is there a picture of the design you can post or a photo even. Covers keep out the rain as well so its not as if we wouldnt have a use for it. :knockout:Marcus26 said:Our club just received a grant to put a shade over our whole shooting line, all 90m of it.
This will allow us to shoot in summer under cover and help protect us against the nasty Aussie sun. Jan/Feb is pretty bad down here, often reaching 40?C with massive UV ratings. Pretty easy to burn within 30min just shooting. By contrast I spent 3 weeks in Madrid last year under 35?c heat and barely tanned.
Nice one don`t suppose your in Kent are youWe had our ground inspected by Regional Judge and were given the ok to use it for all levels of competition as the facilities were deemed so good. We are only in existence a few months but are considering holding a tournament next year.
Tell me about it!! I've still got 30 on a waiting list for beginners courses, with about 18 active club members, three who actually teach regularly. I can't believe how much the demand has rocketed, and with only Sundays available for teachin and club shooting its hard to get the balance right (and even harder to get some shooting in myself!):melodramawe've got more beginners than experianced archers to teach them atm... and more keep appearing and asking if they can join (i blame the schools coaching we did a while ago) and i'm like the other archer not teaching on a thursdya night (more because i've been told to keep the volume of arrows up than me being selfish)
