Over the course of the winter months, we generally move most of our bows and arrows out of the Tournament Office and into our secure storage Armoury in the Clubhouse.
Whilst casual, daily hire of bows and arrows will continue at the field throughout the winter (still at £2.50 per session), it does become cumbersome for you to collect and return the equipment on the day if you are shooting at our Indoor venue at Pool School; particularly for juniors and improvers who do not have the code number to get into the field.
Accordingly, we offer a long-term hire facility over the winter, covering 30 September 2019 (roughly when we start indoors) through to 31 March 2020 (roughly when we finish indoor shooting) where you can take the equipment (bow, arrows x6, quiver, bracer & tab) home with you to make life easier. This won’t apply to the Junior and Senior Longbows that we have, or the Compound – as we only have one of each and letting someone have it for the whole of the winter would potentially deprive someone else from trying them out.
The hire fee is £25 (That’s six months for just £25).
You can use the equipment indoors and outdoors, at no extra cost.
See Paul Callaway (Hon Treasurer) to arrange the hire.
If you get your own gear, or decide not to continue with the hire for whatever reason, during this six-month period, the Club will give a proportionate refund of the hire fee for each unexpired month of the hire period. Of course, you must be a paid-up member for 2019/20 in order to qualify for this.
