Well it’s that time of year again. The Boost sessions will be starting again, of course dependant on our indoor facility availability. The course is to help all archers improve and includes bow tuning, slow motion video capture to review your technique. Basically try to help you understand your equipment better and hopefully improve your shooting. If your interested there will be a poster on our BCA notice board to put your details on or just Alan (Dug) Dunnighan know. The 1st of the 6 sessions is provisionally set for thr 4th December 2 till 4:30 pm
An order for club shirts is just about ready to go.
So if your interested in purchasing a club shirt please contact Alan (Dug) Dunnighan he will be around at most club sessions.

NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS
THE DNAA ‘CASTLES’ LEAGUE 2016-2017
Since the Winter Season of 2007-2008 the DNAA Tony George, has run an Indoor Archery League, previously known as ‘The Logical League’ essentially aimed at encouraging novice, improver or recreational archers to engage in Tournament Shooting. The popularity of the League was such that many experienced archers also became supporters.
The League will be running again this season commencing 1st October. It will now be known as ‘The Castles League’ having been expanded to nine divisions to facilitate movement between the divisions.
Whilst the League covers archers of all abilities the nature of the composition is such that you will be shooting alongside archers of a similar ability so there is no need to feel you will be out of your depth.
The rules and further information can be found on the DNAA website and will also be on our indoor notice board.
Calling all longbow archers. Please find below a link to the Bowmen of Backworth longbow event on the 11th of September.
