Club Longbow in Town

General Posted on Wed, September 10, 2014 2:04 PM

We now have a club longbow, kindly crafted and donated by Rob
Gooch (we wonder how much of his garden decking area he has left!).
It’s a low poundage bow, ideal for beginners, so if you’re
interested in having a go with a ‘proper’ bow then please contact one of
the current longbowers for a free, no obligation, trial.

You will be aware from the AUK magazine that all reference to
the 1/2 Metric rounds in both the World Archery and GNAS Rule Book have
been removed as from 1 April 2014.

Therefore, all reference to these in ABAC’s Club Records & Personal Bests will be removed when next updated.
