For these events you will be divided into shooting squads. You will each be allocated a bow (this Sittingbourne school uses modern re-curve type bows) according to your physique. Then it’s time for a briefing where the simple rules to ensure safety is maintained at all times are explained to you. Then you will head out to the archery challenge area.
And it’s just as you’d expect from the farm estate setting in Swale. Freshly mown lawns create a sizeable shooting area that’s nice and flat with the targets placed between 15 and 20 metres away from you. They are traditional round-style targets with black blue red and gold concentric circles and your job is to get as close as you can to the golden circle with your arrows. Simple.
