2021 Starts off with a new CHALLENGE!
All archers are invited to a little friendly competition – all bows, all ages and all levels are welcome.
Barebow – Compound – Horsebow – Longbow – Recurve
- 30 arrows inside or
- 36 arrows outside
- 18 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60 / 70 meters
- 40 / 60 / 80 / 122 cm target (full face, trispot, Vegas…whatever you have access to)
For those stuck in a situation where 18m is not possible, please decide your own distance and target face and I will make categories as required. For example, 5 meters on 20cm target.
You can do 3 / 6 arrows in 2 / 4 minutes if that makes you feel most comfortable BUT you can also take more time if you need it or increase the number of arrows per end. You can also shoot inside or outside too. You can do as many bow types as you wish. The goal is to get some scores in without any pressure and to allow anyone, anywhere to participate no matter what facilities are available. Scoring your arrows is based on the honour system so just do your best. There is no need to film your shot or submit a full score sheet either.
You are asked simply to participate and to see how your shot is doing with all the disruptions going on in the world. It will take some time to figure out what normal will be but this challenge is something that you can do right now.
This is totally FREE by the way 🙂
PRIZE: One lucky person, chosen at random, will win a signed copy of “Choose to be a Winner” and “Training Journal” by Jens Fudge –> Paralympic Gold Medalist. The book is offered in English or Danish. Details can be found here. A very big thank you to Jens for offering these prizes each and every month of 2021!

One of the things I miss most about traveling to competitions is meeting other archers. So use the comment section to talk with one another. It might lead to a new friendship with someone who loves archery just as much as you.
Good luck 🙂
