This years Boxing day shoot theme will be “SHREK THE MOVIE” so if you are a Donkey on the edge after too much turkey why not come along to the land far far away (aka Countesthorpe) to release your inner Ogre.
We have been advised that the Sport Hall at Brockington will be unavailable for 2 weeks due to it being used for exams. The next indoor session is expected to be 20th December.

You are all probably aware we have a Paralympian in our ranks in the shape of our Chairman Fred Stevens. What you may not know is we have another archer aiming to follow Fred’s path and represent TeamGB at the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020, in the form of Steve Gill.
If you would like to help Steve on the road to Tokyo he is always appreciative of help arrow pulling and tea/coffee making down at the field.
And if anyone would like to help out with funding his endeavours you can make a donation here;
It’s been a great start to our shooting year, and for that we at DMU Archery owe a huge thanks to you all at LAOFAC. We have now concluded our beginners course and have handed out certificates in a little ceremony (Stuart Lowe can attest to the lameness of said ceremony!) and we’re ready now to move indoors for the season. Therefore, we won’t be coming down to the field as a club now until warmer weather arrives. You may yet see the odd DMU archer though we hope.
As such, it’ll be a while until we see you all again. Could you please send your coaches that helped us out a massive thanks from us for giving up their time to help students join our great sport. I would personally, but I only have your emails above.
So, more directly – Thank you ever so much Alan for supporting us once again for our course and helping us get through my role’s transition with the direction of the beginners course.
We wish you all luck with the indoor season and will see you in the new year!
Wish us luck against UoL for our first friendly on the 5th Dec! We’ll be pitting our novices against each other.
