On Monday evening, we hosted a session for the local troop of (15) boy scouts. Most had tried archery before, but it was still quite impressive how well they took the instructions and improved over the evening. The targets had been set out at 20 yards, and the competition which ended the evening was won with a creditable score of 59 from nine arrows. Well done Henry! Thanks to Cedric, Darren, Mark, Nick and Paul for helping.

A classification is a nationally recognized award that shows an archer has achieved a set standard. They range from 3rd class to Bowman (which the club can award) to Master Bowman and Grand Master Bowman (which is awarded by the GNAS directly). The club level awards can be shot either on a club night or in a competition and handed to the records officer (Nick Beeson). The GNAS awards must be shot at a record status tournament and sent to the GNAS. To achieve the award you must shoot the required level three times in a season. more...
The history of the Bowmen of Adel has now been published as a pdf document and is downloadable here.
Club members can shoot on Sunday mornings every weekend but we only have organised rounds in the afternoon.
If you are thinking of coming to the club to shoot in the morning and want to know if anyone else is coming down, post a message on the club's message board:
Please remember that if you cannot find an arrow you MUST complete a lost arrow form and hand it to one of the bar staff so that the groundsman is aware of the area in which it may be lying. In previous seasons a buried arrow has been found by a footballer skid tackling - so this is a safety MUST DO, not an option.NEW ON THIS SITE THIS MONTH
