- Modern tech for the old sport of archery (0)
Archery is without a doubt an old activity, lifestyle and sport.
Archery has been around for a very long time, firstly for hunting for means of food, then war as in the battle of agincourt etc. Finally archery was turned into a pastime by the kings and queens of the medieval / tudor times.
Archery as you know is now part the olympic games and has been (on and off) since the early 1900′s.
Archery in its basic form has changed very little apart from the common 2 finger drawing to the more stable 3 fingers on the string.
If we look at archery bows then yes its come in leaps and bounds. Longbow – modern recurve – compounds.
Archery is embracing technology both in limb, handle & arrow design but also in the way we record information ie apps on smart phones and tablets recording scores and sight marks (gone are the days of paper note pads).
A good few archery folk are also using social networking to connect and get the word of our excellent sport out there. Some however are still lagging behind – so come on guys keep up with technology in archery in all its forms
- London2012 Olympics – Archery (0)
Not long now until the start of the London 2012 Olympics and we are very excited at the thought.
Not only is the olympics good for the UK but its going to be a big boost to a lot of the sports that will get broadcasted.
We at RS Archery and RS Archery Club will be eagerly awaiting the rush of new Robin Hoods once the archery starts.
Being that the olympics are being held in our homegrounds this olympics we stand the best chance of doing well, maybe not winning gold but we can hope.
Coverage of the olympic archery from Lords should be excellent and should be interesting to watch both from a novice point of view and a seasoned archer.
So if you are watching or have watched some of the archery coverage during the olympics and fancy giving it a go yourself then dont hesitate to give us a shout. We are 100% mobile so can bring the archery to you or if you live in hertforshire then why not pop down to our archery club in welwyn garden city.
We look forward to shooting some arrows with you very soon
- Knights Birthday Parties (0)
Evening one and all,
So you think RS Archery only do archery related birthday parties no we also do a party called “knights parties”
So what’s a Knights Birthday Party you ask?
In basic terms it’s THE birthday party that will make your budding knight’s birthday party a party to remember.
It’s all about the life and times of a medieval knight (men at arms) so we have some great medieval party activities for them to partake in
Quintain – Medieval jousting practice along the tilt a must for any knight
Dressing of the Knight Game – soon finds out the squires in them (or not in some cases)
Our excellent talk about all things Knighty!
Sword fighting – Against sack or controlled moves with us (never against each other!) with wooden swords called wasters.
Spear training – Learn the moves & control the spear against an advancing army (the other team or a hanging sack)
Kingy – A real medieval game played by knights for speed & balance – 1 player has a shield while the other throw soft balls (although in medieval times it would have been stones!) at the feet. If the stone (ball) hits you – you’re out!
Score points – All activities will be marked (with a points flag) – which team will be victorious!!!
Hand on session – handle the armour and weapons (all blunted)
Our medieval knight party lasts 1.5 hrs which quite often flies by (no dragons – honest!) but within that time it’s a non stop medieval fun!
Oh and don’t forget that you trainee knights will need some swords, shields, dirks etc… so take a look at our great medieval toys (http://www.rsarchery.co.uk/eshop)
So make your budding knights birthday party and contact us soon.
Watch this space for more Non archery related birthday parties coming in March 2012 !!!!
- Last 5 days at RS Archery (0)
Well where can we start with this blog called “The last 5 days at RS Archery”?
Ok I reckon that it’s been a very exciting week so far, what with the phone going non stop with archery birthday party enquiries, e mails buzzing with interested new archery club members and then my mobile dinging every couple of minutes with new twitter mentions (bless the “archery/tea twitter gang – lol).
From an e mail on Monday we’ve had a young girl popped down to RS Archery Club (Welwyn Garden City) this week for her first archery beginner session, which went very well and she really enjoyed the first archery session.
We always like to get prospectus new archery club members down asap.
Tuesday well was a extremely good day especially regarding the RS Archery web site, I still can’t believe it but our page hits went from a modest 300 avg a day to a huge (for us anyway) 3500 hits in one day!!!!
The only thing I can think has help this is some recent contact and dealings with the good folks at Gold Challenge (http://www.goldchallenge.org). If you don’t know who/what gold challenge is then have a look, then if you fancy having a go at archery the give me a shout!
Wednesday evening was a busy evening revitalising an old second hand set of alu arrows ready for one of our archery club members and exercising on the cross trainer (good for core strength for archery + when I go into our medieval battles)
Thursday – RS Archery Club night (http://www.rsarchery.co.uk/rs-archery-club-wgc-herts) – always a good day/night with a great bunch of friendly archers at the club. I even managed to have a ping of the old bent stick myself – haven’t lost it !!!!
Finally Friday – dam cold but that doesn’t stop us! Plenty of tea to keep the hands warm. I must admit but I’m glad we’ve got to Friday and it’s been a rather relaxed day replying to e mails & the odd tweet.
Now preparing for tomorrows medieval archery birthday party in Watford – have to print of a personalised medieval scroll for a budding Robin Hood called James (http://www.rsarchery.co.uk/medieval-archery-7-11-years)
Ok so this is the start of a more regular blog I hope so any advice, comments or suggestions on what you’d like to read would be gratefully received.
