Sunday saw the start of the 2011 Nottinghamshire County League shoots at Sherwood Archers. There was a good turnout with 23 targets. The weather held out all day, with a couple of spots of rain just before lunch. Our thanks go out to Sue Stankovic and the team at Sherwood Archers for hosting the day, which ran like clockwork.
The next league shoot is on Sunday 12th June at Sherwood Archers. If you did not shoot this league shoot, you can still shoot the next two. As an adult, you will shoot at 60/50/40 yards for the full round, but if you cannot get to 60, shorter rounds are available. If you have not shot a tournament before, it does not matter, people around you will help you – I shot with a gentleman longbow who had only finished his beginners course a couple of weeks ago and had only shot at 60 yards the day before. He had a good day, enjoyed himself and is looking forward to the next league shoot.
