There are always something going on at the Ambrose Archery centre.

14 - Stringing the bow

In the last one of these we assembled the bow so now we need to turn it from a stick and into a bow.

Formal Shoots

Heidelberg generally runs a fairly relaxed comp but monthly they like to get formal and go by the rules.

13 - Assembling the Bow

Before you can shoot your bow it needs to be put together.

3m line - valid arrows

The line 3 metres in front of the shooting line to create greater fairness to athletes in a situation where an arrow drops down from the bow or is miss-shot for some reason.

High Drawing

Judges must be concerned with safety aspects at all times during a competition. If, in the opinion of the Judge, an athlete is using a technique to draw back the string which could allow the arrow, if accidentally released, to fly beyond a safety zone or safety arrangements (overshoot area, net wall etc;), the athlete must be advised to change her/his technique.

12 - Drawing

Drawing a bow or pulling the string back (you don't need pencils for this) uses both arms equally. The bow hand is pushing the bow away as much as the string hand is pulling the string back. It can be compared to stretching a rubber band.

3 meter rule

Three meters in front of where the shooters stand is a line. This line divides the arrows that are considered to have been shot and those that are the result of mis-fire or accident.
