As requested, the County organized accommodation for the archers at Lilleshall for this event.  Unfortunately this will not be the case for future events and we will be reverting back to archers booking their own accommodation going forward.

There are various coaching courses being organized within the County, the website is the best place to look to see what is going on, but please contact the coaching e-mail address (or Ian Norwood County Coaching Officer) for further information.

We are as always looking for candidate judges to join the ranks of our judging team.  If anyone is interested, please contact one of our current candidates or qualified judges who will be more than happy to have a chat.
