NORTHANTS MEMBERS: NCAS and Towcester Archers will welcome any help from volunteers. There will be plenty of jobs including setting up the field the night before, field party on the day, collecting scoresheets, collecting arrows (for those who can’t collect their own), selling raffle tickets, and helping with the have-a-go.

PLEASE NOTE: This is an endurance event, and we highly recommend that you do not attempt to shoot more arrows than you are physically able to do so. We advise that this is an event that prior training should be undertaken for. We want you to stay fit and enjoy the day.

ARROWS: All arrows which miss the targets must be accounted for and found. As we are shooting on sports fields, pure carbon arrows WILL NOT BE PERMITTED and there will be arrow inspections prior to shooting. Please contact the organiser prior to the shoot if you’re not sure about your arrows.

CAMPING: There is camping available for the night before (13th July). Space might be limited as we get closer to the event so please get in touch to check for availability.
