NCAS Charity Shoot

NCAS Charity Shoot

It was agreed at the NCAS county committee meeting on 22nd June, that the NCAS Charity Shoot be pushed back to take place next year.

This gives the hosts Towcester Archers, a better chance of hosting the event properly with the support of other county clubs.

The provisional date for next years event will be Sunday 21st July 2024, and it will remain a Dawn til Dusk endurance event. We will confirm this date as early as possible to give everyone looking to take part plenty of time to enter, gather sponsorship and prepare for the event.

Many thanks

A session about Disabilities

A session about Disabilities

Hello archers,

May I ask you a couple of questions please?

Do you consider yourself to have a disability, seen or hidden?

If so would you be willing to come to a session for archers who would be willing to shoot some arrows and have a chat about what archery has meant to them and their disability?

How might your sport have helped you and in what way?

The session is designed around giving Nick, who you will find on social media as Disabled Adventurer a chance to try archery and also discuss what you gain and how it helps you. He is putting together a series of videos around a number of sports to showcase how sport is more accessible than many think and how people may enjoy it.

The session is being arranged by Helen at Integr8Archery and will be hosted at Towcester Archers.

Please contact Helen at helen@integr8archery.com if you are interested or if you have any questions.
