Would you be kind enough to pass this information to those in your club that might be interested. Doors will be open at 9:00 for range and kit setup so we can start at 10:00, we aim to finish by 4:00pm. Places will be limited so please advise your archers to book in by contacting Ian Norwood at giving a brief outline of their experience and outcome for the session.
