Friendly Shoot 27th Nov 2011
45 NFAS archers turned up on a glorious bright sunny day. after stuffing them selves with full English breakfasts in the cafe, 36 targets were shot before repairing back to the cafe for tea and cakes. Comments about the course where favourable with only a few minor adjustments recommended. We have decided to put on another fun shoot on the 31st December.
2011 Nationals at Eastnor Castle
A team from High Cross built one of the courses at this years NFAS Nationals. We were pleased with our course despite it being covered in six foot high bracken when we first arrived. Comments from participants were very favourable and suggested the course was very challenging as well as safe and interesting. the team made the best they could from the woodland and the land contours. This was all good practice for future course building .
NFAS Open 29th April 2012
29th April 2012; the day of the monsoon and the wettest, coldest day for two years according to the farm. About 65 archers bravely negotiated our course as fast as they could. The idea for catering in a tent in the middle of the figure 8 course had gone out the window. The tent would have blown away in any case. Fortunately we had fantastic catering in the farm shop café adjoining the previous course. Everyone dived into the café for meals and cakes as soon as they could. The rain was horizontal on exposed parts of the course but almost sheltered in the quarries.
