As a new family activity, I tried to get us all signed up for archery lessons only to discover we were too late. Every club I tried was booked up full. You gotta book this stuff well in advance.
So I went and bought our own bows for the kids and had a go in the backyard. Unfortunately, I discovered that the 20lb reflex bow with aluminum arrows I got for Robyn is pretty powerful. I feared for anyone walking in the field behind our house. Haven't been able to use it yet as I'm stuck on how to construct a cheap and effective backstop.
Will try for places at a club in 2010.
