SHARP shoot­ers can test their archery skills on Satur­day.

North Bur­nett Field Archers are host­ing a come and try day from 9.30am to 2pm at the Bur­nett River Pis­tol Club grounds.

In­ter­ested archers will be able to en­joy a day at the spe­cially-de­signed range, which in­volves 20 short and long range tar­gets.

The club re­cently re­ceived a do­na­tion of two bows and ar­rows from the Gayn­dah Freema­sons and Pauleen Dakin from the North Bur­nett Field Archers said the new equip­ment­would be per­fect for begin­ners to have a go with.

is right-handed, so we can ac­tu­ally put a bow in a per­son’s hand,” Dakin said.

“They are ab­so­lutely won­der­ful for begin­ners, just to have a go and get a feel for the sport.

“Archery is great for all ages. It’s a good healthy sport.

“We are try­ing to grow the club and it’s open for any­one to come along.”

No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary for the come and try day, but archers will need closed in shoes and a hat to take part.
