Feedback and Thanks

Below are the Comments, reviews and thanks that the club has received from people who have attended a Braintree Bowmen event.

Beginners Course

"Both Wilbur and I were very happy with the course and always looked forward to our Sunday afternoons. ......I think you have a first rate course structure already.  Not too many students, always someone willing to help and answer questions or just to chat/discuss any issues....”

"It was a wicked day....thank Emma, She was calm natured, friendly, polite and gave feedback in a concise clear manner....Her obvious love of archery definitely rubbed off on me and she wasn’t too harsh when I made mistakes...."

Archery Experience


"......My 9 year old son and I both thoroughly enjoyed out taster session at Blake End. The welcome was warm and friendly, with tea and bacon sandwiches in abundance. The necessary safety/equipment briefing was informative and clear, and we both felt comfortable when we started to shoot.  Our instructer, Pam, was very patient with us, giving helpful tips whilst managing our expectation that we would hit the bullseye every time!  We both came away having enjoyed the experience, with my son keener than ever to become involved in the sport....."

"Hats off to everyone today, I could only help from just after 1pm today but those who had been there from 9:30am are true legends and well deserving of a feet up relaxing evening, the relentless sun and stream of people was exhausting.  As a bonus for me I convinced my daughter to attend with me and having gone through the queue twice and then having another two goes at the end has told me how fantastic she thinks archery is and would like to attend a training course as soon as possible. A good day indeed......."

Just to say a big thankyou to the Braintree Bowmen, it was a very successful afternoon. You seemed to have a steady flow of customers so I only needed to give you one "plug"......"

Friendly Competition Shoots

BBQ Shoot, August 2012

Thank you and Braintree bowmen for a brilliant day on Sunday, .......and for looking after my wife food and drink wise. I know Tracey was nervous and the greeting we got from you helped her to calm down and enjoy the day. I also wish to say a personal thank you to you and your club for allowing me to bring Tracey, when you start out as a judge its hard to get invited to shoots because no one knows who you are or what you are like. Your club has a very friendly outlook and atmosphere which I wish I could take all my candidates to.........."

Field Shoot Feedback

Dear Nigel, and all those many who laid the course [and brought it in], those who did the catering, those who did the scoring !
Just a short note to thank you for a very welcoming, well-organised and successful shoot.
The venue is great, the facilities a luxury !
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were please to sense the general atmosphere of the shoot was a very happy one.
Some of you may be disappointed there were guys who could not go beyond looking out of the window at home – don’t be.
When you get a bit of adverse weather and still shoot, it binds people together with a sense of camaraderie – you also get a reputation.
So please take unreserved pride in yet another great shoot.
For ourselves it brings only good memories.
Thank you – all – again.
Kind regards
Brian and Catherine Mooyaart (Gosfield 2016)


"Just a quick email to say thank you on behalf of Parkfield Archers to your club for putting on another fantastic day. See you next time! "

I just wanted to again thank you all for staging another fabulous field shoot......Please pass my congratulations to Richard  Burgess for designing and building a testing, yet achievable, course.

"A great day. My son thoroughly enjoyed the shooting, probably his most enjoyable day of archery. Even his poor sister who we had to drag along for the day enjoyed it. We thought the organisation and catering were excellent.  Can't wait for the next one. Thank you"

Many thanks for a great day out!!!


On behalf of all 6 of us from Bowmen of Ardleigh I'd like to say that we had a superb day today. The event was run really well and from our point of view ran fantastically. Catering was also extremely good (the pulled pork was wonderful!!!) Once again thanks for all the hard work that obviously went in and I'm sure we all hope to see you again next year! !!

Dear Pam, thank Nigel for his very informative newsletter ,although I don't spend as much time as I could at the club ,I have really enjoyed my time since I took up archery and I know I could not have joined a better club .. Personally I think I am making progress ,entering competitions and getting better scores, but I think I need more coaching to iron my faults out. ....."
