When you hear the word archery, you probably envision a superhero character with bow and arrow who makes seemingly impossibly shots; they never miss! That is archery, and, at the same time, it isn’t.
Archery isn’t just for superheroes; it is for everybody. If you can pull that bow-string, then you can be an archer. This club is all-inclusive, and I mean ALL-INCLUSIVE. There is no reason not to give this sport a try.
Excuse 1 – “I’ve never done archery before” - We will begin with the absolute basics of archery, so no experience is necessary to start.
Excuse 2 – “I don’t own a bow” – No problem! Practice bows and arrows will be provided!
Excuse 3 – “I’ll probably not be any good at it” – NOBODY is good at something when they are first starting out. Quitting is the only way to fail at this.
Excuse 4 – “I don’t know anybody else who will be in that club” – Don’t let others’ lack of participation curve your enthusiasm. If you find out that you like archery, you will make new “archery” friends on the first day.
Come give The Archery Guild a try. You won’t regret it!
