Arrowsmith archery club set to host open house

Instructors and equipment to be provided

If you ever wondered what it was like to be able to split an arrow like Robin Hood, shoot a bow like Legolas, Katniss, or the Green Arrow, this may be the right time to try the ancient sport of archery.

The Arrowsmith Archers indoor season is about to begin and they are kicking things off with an Open House that will take place at the Pentecostal Camp in Nanoose Bay, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Access to the building is in the rear.

Bob O’Brien of the archery club said people will get the chance to try the sport in a welcoming safe place with equipment and instructors provided. He is inviting anyone interested in the sport to come on down and pop a few balloons.

Also welcome are experienced archers that wish to try our facility and those that have that old bow that has been hanging the closet for many years.

The Arrowsmith Archers are part of the Parksville Qualicum Fish and Game Club. Members vary from youth shooters to seniors, from beginners to advanced, casual members to those shooting in competitions.

Archers practice and shoot throughout the year doing indoor and outdoor target archery and 3-D shoots.

Some shoot only for the fun of it while others compete locally, provincially, nationally and internationally, some even dream of representing Canada at the Olympics or World Championships.
