Come and try archery in Fe­bru­ary

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT - TRIS­TAN EVERT

ARCHERY: North Bur­nett Field Archers will hold its first club shoot on Fe­bru­ary 2, an event all about giv­ing peo­ple the chance to try the sport.

The club is en­cour­ag­ing any­one with a keen in­ter­est in archery to at­tend the come-and-try day, when the club will sup­ply all the re­quired equip­ment free of charge.

NBFA spokes­woman Pauleen Dakin said 2020 was set to be an amaz­ing year.

“For the month of Fe­bru­ary we will be run­ning a come-and-try month for all want­ing to come and try a new sport,” Dakin said.

“Archery is great for all fit­ness and abil­ity lev­els.”

The come-and-try day will have a sausage siz­zle lunch to raise funds for the club.

The NBFA is also ap­proach­ing its 10th birth­day in Au­gust and Dakin says the club would like to see new and old faces new to help cel­e­brate.

“We have our fifth an­nual trad (tra­di­tional archery) week­end on Au­gust 1 and 2 and this will see past and present mem­bers cel­e­brate the club’s 10th birth­day,” she said.

“We will likely see archers from all over Queens­land and Aus­tralia travel to Gayn­dah.”

Trad par­tic­i­pants will use wooden long bows and wooden ar­rows. Email nb­farchers@hot­mail.com for de­tails.
