There are always something going on at the Ambrose Archery centre.
When learning archery (even when you have done it for a long time) it can seem as if there are too many things to think about and remember. The important thing to keep in mind is that you only need to think about one thing at a time. Break the shot down into individual movements.
The only way to improve in this sport is to practise and a little often if far better than a lot but in frequently. Archery is about 'feel' or knowing when your body is correctly set-up. That 'feel' can take a long time to develop but only takes a short time to lose. So practise often. When you can't make it down to the range than practising in front of a mirror is the next best thing.
When people come into Ambrose Archery the way that we show them how to shoot is with 3 fingers below the arrow. This is because it is quickest way to get up and shooting as you can always keep the arrow's point on the yellow when you aim.
At our lessons we also start this way because as you work your way through the lessons there is an opportunity to try out some of the different styles of archery.
After a long break HA had the return of Felipe. From the very early days of Ambrose Archery Felipe has been a feature of the place and now joining in with HA for some competition. Great to see another compound on the line.
The recurvers saw a very close ending Simon taking 1st with 488, Glenn taking 2nd with 487 and Dougal 3rd with you guessed it 486.
With the field open in the absence of Joseph, Mark scored a 466 to take out the Barebow.
