2012 The Year of The BB300
We take up archery for a variety of reasons, for me it was the lasting memory of watching Richard Green playing Robin Hood every Saturday evening that left me with an interest in archery.  Mark you more than 40 years passed before I actually lifted a bow and tried the sport for myself.  That first time releasing the arrow was wonderful, and I hit the boss, so this quickly became the sport for me.... who knows I could be a natural, shooting for Essex and England..... Ok, so that is going a bit far but if you can't dream.......
