It’s just like archery, but with big heavy balls.

And pins. And beer. And silly shoes.

Ok, maybe its not that like archery, but it is fun, and it’s what a good few of us will be doing on Saturday night down in Durham.

Obviously, the one way in which it will be similar to archery is that we Compounders will totally howk you Recurvists, just like we usually do.

Its ON.


I will report on Sunday just how badly we hammer the recurve crew, watch this space…


Ok you lot, “This be where we get our archery on” may very well have struck me as funny earlier on but it wont do as a long term thing.

Lets have some suggestions shall we?

My first (humourous) thought was:

Durham City Archers : Taking Archery Seriously

but I couldnt keep a straight face long enough to type it, can any of you do better?

It's a 10.
