Club News

The webspace has been neglected recently due to the massive interest in the club. We have been spending every spare minute promoting the club and introducing newcomers to the sport. We have been victims of our own success as demand for places on beginners courses has pushed the facilities available to the limits.

We are now established as a club and shooting regularly, more equipment will be available shortly and even though life has been hectic for all involved, we will endevour to provide quality training which leads to ArcheryGB membership.

Please contact us using the information on these pages if you would like further information or to check on availability of spaces on beginners courses.

As the nights close in we will spend time filling in the gaps to the site and planning future events, please re-visit regularly to see Aardwolf Archers progress and developments.

Looking back at the Weekend

Our third and last event for the time being was again a resounding success. With the help from a great team the day ended with around 20 would be archers enjoying a half hour taster session and many more just having a go.

This event was split between two locations, during the morning at Mosborough Miners Welfare then transferring to the old Westfield School Fields. This proved to be very tiring logistically but with help from members Alan, Alison, Audrey, and Steve (hopefully new member) with partner Lynn and of course the fearless four (the committee) the day went well.

Many who attended showed interest in the club and we're hoping they will enrol on beginners courses soon. As the nights close in beginners course will be held at weekends so budding archers can train throughout the year. Many attending the event lived locally but we enjoyed the company of a lovely Mum and Son from Australia, visiting a relative in killamarsh and we are honoured that they chose to spend some of their holiday with us enjoying shooting arrows and having a bit of a competition between themselves.

Have a Go and Taster event this Saturday 20/08/11

This will give everyone a chance to see the two venues and the afternoon session will allow new members to see where we regularly shoot.

Everyone's welcome with no age limit and all we ask is a nominal payment of £1.50 for the have a go and £5 for a half hour taster session.

Norton Show 2011

This was the first time Aardwolf Archers had attended the Norton Show. This is an annual event and this year was the 108th show. The showground was a hive of activity with horticultural exhibitions, environmental groups, all sorts of animal and craft attractions, an equestrion event and much much more.

The weater was good and the sun shone in the afternoon. Everyone seemed to be having a good time and our archers were busy all day supervising in excess of 100 people of all ages sampling our sport.

We thank Norton Ploughing Association for all their hard work in organising a superb show, all the budding archers for visiting us and having a go and to our team for giving their time to promote our club.

Today we held our first event as a new club. The Have a go and Taster sessions day was a great success.
Our first visitors arrived as soon as we were set up at 10.00am and we extended our finishing time by nearly an hour due to the numbers showing interest.

We owe our sincere thanks to our Archer friends and family who rallied to help and the good news is they are joining The club.

VIP evening at Decathlon

Decathlon, the sports shop held a VIP evening at their Sheffield store last week and Aardwolf Archers had invites to attend. We had an enjoyable evening with them which began with a presentation about Decathlon and their services.
We then met Amy who looks after the Archery section and she took time to explain how the store works and what the shop and the club could do together.
We left with some very useful pieces of equipment and in return posters advertising our club will be displayed in the store.The team at Decathlon are all enthusiastic about their store and\ this makes it a great place to shop.
