More Pi anyone?

As all of us (in the UK, anyway) escape the clutches of the pandemic restrictions, I’m in the mood to re-stimulate my grey cells (cellS?) πŸ˜‰ and get my brain back into gear! I’m going to dive into the world of the Raspberry Pi! For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, the …

Friday is here again and that means our Archery Lessons continue… This is our last week (for 2019) where the Club will be shooting outside (due to an earlier sunset affecting the light).

Bow Best?

It was our weekly Archery Class tonight! So, after my generally sub-par performance last week, I’m hoping I’ll be on better form tonight – especially as my Mentor, Dave, is back to keep an eye on me! Again tonight, conditions were perfect – not too warm, not too cold with a gentle breeze. It was …

For me, tonight is extra special as I’ve traded-up to a proper English Longbow! – and it came with some expert coaching from one of KA’s experienced Bowmen, Dave. Although it’s perfectly possible to use the Longbow for target …

A Long Time with a Longbow!

Friday is with us again and that means it’s our weekly lessons, courtesy of Kettering Archers! For me this time, there was a deliberate change of equipment! After spending last week and the week before dabbling with the Longbow, tonight, I decided to spend the whole evening with this more authentic Bow. Remember, it has …

Steve – Take a Bow!

Friday evening – and our weekly Archery lesson..! ..and another warm evening too!! In fact, maybe a bit too warm! After dabbling with that ‘big-boy’s toy’ last week known as the Longbow – this evening was more of the same for me, plus a trade-up to a heavier Practice Bow in the shape of a …

Big Boy Bow!

If it’s Friday night, then for us, it can only mean one thing: stick ’em with the pointy end! Sorry, I do of course mean… outdoor archery practice, courtesy of Kettering Archers. And what a lovely evening for it! 😊 Ann and I continued to refine our technique with the bows we used last time …
