Congratulations to the following, who successfully completed our beginners course on the weekend of 1st and 2nd March:

Weather-wise it was a fairly typical late Winter weekend that began in sunshine but concluded in chill and windy conditions.  A laudable combination of enthusiasm and determination served to overcome the elements, however, and the final shoot-out was as keenly contested as ever.

Pete Turner contacted us to say that “I had a really good time on the course and will certainly be investigating doing some more archery,” words to bring a cheer to an instructor’s heart.

The juniors and their parents were also happy bunnies. “My daughter Anya Smith really enjoyed the archery course over the weekend and we would both like to say “thank you” to you all,” wrote Paul Smith, a sentiment echoed by Kath Ward who wrote “Thank you for a lovely weekend. Ryan loved it.”

Hope to see everyone at St Aubyns again this Spring and Summer.
