This is an excellent venue which has a long history of holding events of National Championship standard.
At present these events are scheduled to be 12, 14 or 16 targets, using World Archery Field target faces Forester faces and National Animal. Distance will be marked/unmarked. Therefore some skill in distance judging will be required. This makes it ideal for both experienced and novice field archers to partake.
The membership fee for the 2018 KAF season will be £20.00, and is open to all KAA members. This can be paid by either cheque, or a direct bank transfer. Membership fees will be due by 22nd February 2018. A member of KAF will be entitled to shoot at the 6 KAF events detailed in the calendar below.
KAF members will also be entitled to a reduced entry fee for a seventh event, this being the KAA Field Championships.
As detailed in the previously circulated KAF Terms of Reference, members will be required to assist at some of these workday events. The work required will vary from clearing and maintaining the course, to measuring targets and preparing target faces.
The six events that the KAF have committed to providing in 2018 will also be open to KAA members that are not members of KAF. For these people there will be a shooting fee payable of £6.00 per person.
At present there will not be any shooting at the Gorewood venue outside of the events detailed in the 2018 schedule. This is owing to current access restrictions on the Gorewood venue. We now have a KAF committee, an excellent venue, and an event calendar for the 2018 season.
