The second beginners course of 2013 presented by Kings Park Archery Club ended last week with all 23 participants smiling broadly. From the oldest to the youngest (who was really rather tiny but with enormous heart) the comments were the same; “so enjoyable”, “greatest fun”, “where do I sign up”. In short; a very good time was had by all. The KPAC Beginners Course has remained a very popular event over the years and has in fact grown in the past three years. Up to 23 participants can be accommodated per session and two session can be scheduled for a Saturday. The course is run over three Saturdays, a session lasts around two hours, and there is a mini competition, ranking round and eliminations, in the last session. The result is a great deal of excitement and competing for the “medals” which in this case is a large chocolate, a medium chocolate and a small chocolate and for competitors who do not eat chocolate they may donate their winnings to the coaches.




The course is presented each quarter as soon after the new school term starts as possible. There is no advertising other than word of mouth and the first session of the July course is almost fully booked already. But the most important fact is that from each course a number of the participants join the club an get involved in the sport, which, after all, is what it's all about isn't it?
