    Consistent anchor point

    unless you have a fairly short draw length to begin with, wont arrow length become a problem if you're drawing to (and possibly beyond) your ear?

    A request about bow stands.

    Why not just use something like a tent peg stuck in the ground at an angle with the curved part over one of the legs?

    Arrows aren't bullets

    Surely the overshoot and side safety zones discussed in the article are only (a little more than) what AGB target archers have (150 yds from shooting line to end of safety zone for bows shot with mechanical release aid) OR are we now saying that field archers wont miss as far as target archers?

    garden set up advice please!

    Problem is that common sense isnt that common. Whats obvious to you might not be so obvious to the next guy. As a coach teaching beginners, I'm often amazed by the number of beginners who are surprised when I tell them (in answer to the "can I shoot my bow at home) that the hedge at the edge of...

    Whats the 3m line for indoors?

    This happened at the EMAS indoor championships this afternoon. The lady in green shoots compound and was coming down on her shot. She didn?t realise that she had accidentally triggered her release as she came down, and her arrow ended up in the floor, as you can see. I?m posting this just as a...

    What are other clubs doing about new members at this time of year?

    So, we've just finished a beginners course and some of the beginners want to join the club. So, do we charge them the pro-rata ?26 AGB fees for September and then next week ask them for another ?52 AGB for 2018-19? Do we charge them the full AGB fee for 2018-19 but tell them to go away until...

    Moving single bosses?

    We've just bought 2 layered foam bosses for our compound archers who kept complaining about their arrows going through the straw bosses. When they arrived we discovered just how big they are and told the compounders that they'd have to do their own trolley run to fetch their 2 bosses in. I'm...

    What else can clubs do with the new sport80 website?

    The new Sport80 website looks like we should be able to do much more with it than maintain members agb membership, but what? There's "Teams" but I cant find any info about what its for! Are "counties" an entity like clubs are? Can counties see a list of their members? Is there anything else...
