Volunteering for a big sporting event or for a club makes you a valuable person as much as the champions who shoot for gold. I have been volunteering for sports events with the aim of doing a great service for the athletes and making a great contribution to a society that promotes sport and the wellbeing of the community.

 How I Learned to be a Wind Master...

In 1991 I competed in a tournament in Houston, TX that would prove to be the worst weather I have ever shot in. The first day started off with a thick fog that made 90m hard to see and within the first hour the rain started coming down. It started gently at first and then would stop for moment just long enough for the wind to pick up between the rains. When 70m shooting started, light hail began coming down and the temperature changed fast. Within a few ends the winds had picked up and gusts of 40 mph would come and go. The entire day was spent with temperatures changing constantly, the wind blowing heavily most of the day, and the rain just kept coming with down pours every 15 minutes.

When I learned about archery competitions I was quite surprised by the number of games there were that you could play. All I knew of archery competitions was the Olympic archery games and that was a very big target for me to aim for.

Every archer at some point has shot in the wind or rain. Only a rare few will say that they like the wind or rain. The reason why most do not like the wind is really simple. It is because it effects our shots. Plain and simple. The wind is an enemy for most outdoor shooters. You eat sand, eyes burn, the shot isn’t steady, and your hair is a total mess! So how do you enjoy shooting in the wind or rain?

A long time ago sports equipment was little more than just an instrument of the success of sportsmen. Racing cars for example were built with powerful engines, simple steering and brake horsepower to speed to victory kept in check with a few basic tools, lubricants and fuelling. Now today they have a vast array of gadgets and highly advanced technical components and on-board electronics. These features are vital in cutting down the number of seconds in a lap time and can enable them to break records unlike anything ever before.

Archery has evolved alongside the cultures through the ages. With a very simple bow and arrow the human race has been able to hunt and protect themselves, and with any activity there is always a little friendly competition.

When you go to see an archery tournament featuring modern competitive archers you would expect them to be carrying their arrows on their back in a quiver, just like what you’d probably see in a Robin Hood film. That’s not how it actually works in today’s modern competitions, such quivers like that are not allowed. When I showed off my archery equipment for the first time to my friends they were rather miffed about the type of quiver that I was using. It looked like a holster that resembled a lady’s handbag. One of my friends suggested that I should get a back quiver and be like Robin Hood. Well as much as I would like to have a quiver like that it’s not allowed on archery competitions. This is because back quivers and side quivers were designed for different types of archery in mind.

If buying real estate can be summed with location, location, location then buying a compound bow can be summed as fit, fit, fit. A poorly fitted bow causes shooting form errors which mean poor accuracy and an unhappy archer. Only buy a bow of proper fit, anything else will waste your time and money. Not sure how to fit your bow? This guide will show you.

The earliest people known to have used bows and arrows were the ancient Egyptians, who began using the tools at least 5,000 years ago for hunting and warfare purposes. Archery probably dates to the Stone Age, around 20,000 years ago. 
An enormous resurgence in the interest in archery has taken place in modern times. Much of the credit is given to Fred Bear, one of the world’s great archers. Modern bow hunting seasons began in the United States after WWII. The archery industry has grown by leaps and bounds, especially after the introduction of compound bows and crossbows for hunting purposes.
