Outdoor Season 2017

Haven’t yet ventured out to the exciting world of competition?

The 2017 outdoor season is now on its way and hopefully we will have some nice weather to enjoy it!

There is a great misapprehension that competitions are only for elite archers! This is just not the case, competitions are really good fun and bring a whole new dimension to your archery, they are exciting and give you the opportunity to meet up with other archers from other clubs, and there is always a great atmosphere and camaraderie around the field.

Competitions also give you a way of keeping a record of how you’re progressing by seeing your scores start to improve.

A lot of the tournament organisers include shorter rounds for those archers who have never shot at a competition before and there is often a separate prize for Novices!

Make this the year you enter a new and challenging chapter in your archery life!

This year we are hoping to see some new faces on the shooting line and steps have been taken to ensure there is something on offer for archers of all levels. There are already a couple of fun shoots on the calendar being hosted by Glasgow Archers and Penicuik Archers so why not give them a try!

Check out the Scottish Archery Tournament Calendar and see what competitions are available.

Survey For Archers Who Do Not Compete

The Tournament Organisers Committee is looking to encourage more archers in Scotland to take part in outdoor competitions. Therefore we would like to ask those archers who don’t compete at the moment why they aren’t competing and what may encourage them to start entering competitions. Please help us by answering these 9 short questions and we would appreciate it if you could complete the survey by 31st May 2017.

As an incentive to complete the survey, you could be in with a chance of winning £50 worth of Amazon archers - so please complete the survey.
