Everyone attending the course, and parents or visitors, should come down to the field to sign on at the desk. The Clubhouse has a bathroom, but not potable water. Drinking water is available in jugs on the field. We also have a range of cold soft drinks, bottled water, and chips for sale. There is also tea and coffee available – you’ll just need to boil the jug.

What to Bring

The archery ranges are open field areas, so there is little shade available on the shooting line during the lesson. Portable pergolas will be set up behind the shooting line for shade during Summer. Please wear suitable clothing for the weather conditions, especially during summer, as the lessons will have you standing in the sun for a couple of hours – a bottle of water, hat and sunscreen are recommended! Shaded areas are available behind the archery shooting line for parents and visitors to setup chairs and picnic blankets. All parents are welcome to stay, but it is not a requirement.
