I was just looking at archery clubs in and around the midlands when I came across Artemis.
My husband Frank & I lived near Belper, more than 11 years ago , until we came to live here in Brittany France. We now have a 3 bedroomed holiday cottage for 6 people next to our own home, but with the added bonus of being able to practice your archery skills in a private environment.
We have a field course in an adjacent woodland and targets in the large enclosed garden for the sole use of our guests.
“THANK YOU Team ARTEMIS ARCHERS. A successful 3D Champs 2013 by all the feedback.
I would like to personally thank each and everyone of you for making it so. You are all stars and together I know we make a formidable team. Everyone worked hard, expressed their thoughts and listened to each other. Culminating in a course worthy of a champs confirmed by so many who know.
5 weeks of hard work later I am proud of you and “Artemis”. One memory I will hold dearly is taking the bow in front of our fellow archers with you all. Not so keen on Rhoddys and brambles! Like to forget them.
Hold your heads high guys and gals.”
I have now uploaded the photos Matt took around the course, they can be found under the Photo Galleries heading on the menu bar. Alternatively, just click here
Sunday saw eight members of Artemis attend Wolverine Archers’ open shoot. The weather started off a little bit damp but thankfully the trees provided sufficient cover to keep us mainly dry throughout the day.
The course was very enjoyable and some shots were more than a little bit challenging. At the end of the day when all the results were in, Artemis had a pretty good showing.
Congratulations to all the members of Artemis who attended the 3D National Championships this year at Osmaston Park.
The weather conditions on Sunday made it a somewhat challenging day with most people finishing the day completely soaked to the skin. Thanks to Mark for transporting the gala tent that made the evenings somewhat drier and more sociable than would have been otherwise possible. Just need to get some smokeless fuel for the fire pit next time
Congratulations to the following for their medal placements:
