Towcester Archers First Club Session

Towcester Archers First Club Session

“After a lot of hard work and patience, we finally had our very first shooting session together as a club, on the morning of Sunday 2nd August 2020.

Literally just three weeks ago, we were very close to knocking the idea of a 2020 start on the head. Very little seemed to be going our way, with only a few months left of the outdoor season, and very little possibility of finding a suitable indoor venue during current restrictions, it was starting to seem pointless. A sensible pause and wait, until the ground works are finally complete next year, allowing us start the club properly at our permanent Towcestrians range.

Thankfully, an opportunity to use Dadford Road Campsite came along for us at just the right time. Despite the added complication of the spectatorless Grand Prix being held at Silverstone on the same first two weekends, and possible access restrictions, our first session took place.

The afternoon before was spent putting the target stands together, measuring out and marking the field with the distances and shooting lanes, in order to comply with current Archery GB guidance for shoot under social distancing.

A big thank you to all involved in getting us here, to the clubs who have donated their time and spare equipment, and to our new members for making this possible.”
