Break O’Day Field Archery Club – Success and More Success. March 2017

September 30, 2017 admin

Was it only two weeks ago that the Ladies Warrior Princess archery shoot was on?  It was a great day and the ladies involved enjoyed themselves immensely. The comments we received were all positive, and covered everything from, ‘how safe I feel’ to ‘I cannot wait to do this again and get even better’.  A fantastic afternoon tea of homemade cakes was served on antique china plates, with freshly brewed tea and coffee.  It was the cherry on the day.

In fact the ladies had such a great time they were back the next day with their husbands and we took two different teams out on the range.  The ladies second day of archery saw a slight improvement as they were able to use the skills they had learnt the day before. The male team had an enjoyable time with lots of laughs and friendly banter, within a companionable competitive spirit.  Such a great time was had, we have some new members.

Our next ladies only archery shoot will be Saturday 22nd of April.  Shooting fee is $15 each lady and this includes equipment hire, training and afternoon tea.  We shall start at 1.00 pm and it should go for several hours so make sure you wear comfortable closed in shoes and bring a water bottle. The location is 24627 Tasman Highway, look for the big blue bus in the paddock.  Numbers are limited to 6 ladies at a time, so please confirm your place by booking on 03 6376 1815.  If there is a deal of interest another date will be made available.

Last weekend was another great day for our little Tassie Archery Club.  We arrived at Fingal Valley Festival at 8am to set up and we didn’t have a break until it was time to pack up at 5pm.  What a day! As a conservative estimate we had 60 people of all ages have an ‘archery taste experience’ at our stall. Teagan and Matt from Chilli FM had a go and enjoyed immensely.  Both of them did very well and were hitting the target after a few arrows. You can check out the video on the Chilli FM website. So far we have over 1500 views.  This was a great advertisement for both the Fingal Valley Festival and the Break O’Day Field Archery Club.  We had quite a few enquiries about possible new memberships and look forward to seeing some people again over the next few months.
