Archery GB Big Weekend 2019

South Bucks Archers archery club took part in Archery GB’s ‘Big Weekend’ event on Sunday by inviting members of the public to come and try out archery.

This was the 3rd year for the club and over 40 people attended the open morning to try their hand at archery. The event proved to be popular with men and women of all ages. Children over 10 years old were also able to pick up a bow and shoot.

Club secretary, Mary Blumbergs, said “It was great to see so many people come and have a go at archery. Our experienced archers supervised members of the public as they shot over 600 arrows between them. We were really pleased with the amount of interest in the club and had a great time sharing our passion for archery with the local community. A big thank you to our volunteers who made the event possible'

The Big Weekend is a nationwide initiative, by governing body Archery GB, that encourages archery clubs to open their doors to the public to raise awareness of the sport and provision in their local areas. South Bucks Archers was one of 95 clubs nationwide to take part.
