Artemis Archers Open Shoot – 27th October 2013

The WallThis was our third shoot and we hoped for good weather but it did not look good all week, but we consider ourselves lucky we had a very fine morning and early afternoon, and then the rain came. Copied this paragraph from last years report, uncanny eh?

The weather forecast did inevitably create the last minute cancellations but balanced by new requests, leaving us with a very respectable 126 archers walking out.

The course was set comprising of 27 new faces from makers

Normandie Archerie, 5x3D’s, 2x 2D’s & 2x Original Canvasses from Paul Summerfield (Druids). A lot of excitement over them all, being the first time many had seen them. The Iguana up the wall generated some laughter.

The extra 3D Targets this time, excluding Kay’s Boar in the field like Ian’s Badger on the mound were inside the wall (with backstops) hopefully giving more variety and a chance to retrieve your arrows in one piece.

We have had many compliments on the day and after, so a great success.

So a huge Thank You to Catering, Admin, Marshalls, Target Pasters, Work Parties, support workers and Course setters for all your hard work on the day, in the weeks leading up to it and working behind the scenes.

Finally, a big Thank You to all the archers. Particularly Nicola (hard terrain but you did it. Well done), Ian and Brenda who also travelled all the way from the south coast showcasing the exciting new Austrian 3D’s. We enjoyed sharing our wood with you all and for conquering our slope between 19 and 21. Not easy!

Archery Holidays in France

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.

Would you like to take a look at our site  http://www.lupain-holiday-rentals.com/FR00910

Maybe your members would like to consider a holiday in Morbihan Brittany. We are only 2 or 4hrs from the French ferry ports.

Please email for further information.

Regards

Frank & Chris

3D Championships 2013

Mark Taylor

“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
