About the event

This is a relaxed and friendly tournament for all archers, and an ideal introduction to competition for new archers. For beginners our informal judge will guide you through bow checking, expected clothing, how to shoot in a competition, and offer advice on scoring and competition etiquette. It all seems quite daunting but is actually easy and lots of fun!
