  1. All the fours...

    A couple of months to catch up on. After the AOR Portsmouth in Jan, there was nearly a month before my clubís open Portsmouth on 24th Feb. All the way through the season Iíve shot most Monday and Thursday lunchtimes at Indoor Archery Ltd, and at the club most Thursday evenings. On 16th Feb, I spent a whole Saturday afternoon at Indoor Archery as a birthday treat. Great to shoot a decent number of arrows, nearly 160 including a decent 581 Portsmouth, and a 559 single face WA18. Shot a fairly solid ...

  2. Serves me right?!

    My first competition back yesterday, went exactly as it should have. The fact that I even mentioned shooting an arrow off of the top of my button in my last post, and how I didnít win a competition because of it, means that of course, that was how this was going to go. I even said in the post that ĎI find that now, I always check that my arrow is on the rest properly while positioning my hand in the grip.Ē What a ###.

    Actually I really do check the arrow. But on that end/shot I found ...

  3. A blog entry! 2014 - 2018 Part 3.

    Last September the itchiness started again after watching Jamie win gold with the GB team, and especially when I found out about Indoor Archery Ltd. Iím not 100% sure, being sort of out of the loop for a while but, Iíd say there canít be many if any other dedicated archery shooting ranges in the UK? By that I mean facilities not attached to an archery shop, such as Merlin, Chiltern Archery or Aim4Sport for example who have a range to facilitate the retail side of the business. Indoor Archery Ltd ...

  4. A blog entry! 2014 - 2018 Part 2.

    The bow went away again then until August 2016. Setting up a target in our new garage, tried to get in there most evenings after putting Harriet to bed. Now working in Little Billing, Northampton meant it would be tricky time-wise to get to Brampton to shoot with Duston Bowmen. So upon re-affiliating I joined Northampton Archery Club. They shoot at Sywell Range during the summer and at Moulton College during the winter, both of which are much easier for me to get to from work. I think my very first ...

  5. A blog entry! 2014 - 2018 Part 1.

    Wow... Iíve written a blog entry. First since September 2014! Iíve tried numerous times to do this over the last few years, and this is made up of several parts of several previous attempts.

    In reading back through a lot of my old posts, Iím so glad I started this blog originally back in November 2007. Despite the terrible spelling, grammar and the general poor writing (Iím thinking of the time Ian Hannaford told me that it read like a student blog, hahaa). Itís really great reference, ...
