Archery GB’s Big Weekend 2018

South Bucks Archers archery club hosted an Archery ‘Big Weekend’ event on Sunday so that members of the public could come and try out archery, many for the first time. Over 40 people attended the open morning to try their hand at archery. The event proved to be popular with men and women of all ages. Children over 10 years old were also able to pick up a bow and shoot.

Club secretary, Mary Blumbergs, said “It was great to see so many people come and have a go at archery. Our experienced archers supervised members of the public as they shot over 450 arrows between them. We were really pleased with the amount of interest in the club and had a wonderful time sharing our passion for archery with the local community. A big thank you to our volunteers who made the event possible'

The Big Weekend is a nationwide initiative, by governing body Archery GB, that encourages archery clubs to open their doors to the public to raise awareness of the sport and provision in their local areas. South Bucks Archers was one of over 80 clubs nationwide to take part.

South Bucks Archers welcomes new members who must first undertake a beginners’ course before joining.
