Archery Day - Mourne Archery Centre
« on: November 15, 2010 »

I spoke to Katy today from the Mourne Archery Centre to find out about organising a group session for all those NI-Wilders who fancy having a crack at a bit of Archery.  

The Mourne Archery Centre is a family run business and welcome groups of 2-30 and will provide all the equipment and tuition.  It's a relatively cheap day out, costing £5 per hour and I reckon two hours would be plenty to get us started.

They are open Sundays from 2-6pm and I think a Sunday would be the best day to go down as most peeps are free on a Sunday, with only the most unfortunate having to work  :'(

If you interested in having a go and possibly meeting for a bite to eat, and a quick pint after, around Newcastle, then throw up a reply post and register your interest.  If we are going to do this I think we should aim for (No pun intended) either Sunday 21st or 28th of November; or Sunday 12th December.

Be warned, archery is very addictive.  If you have one to many hobbies already then maybe this is not for you  ;)

How does Sunday the 28th November suit everyone?  The 28th gives us a bit of time to get things organised (not that this one needs much organising, we just turn up... Sober!!!).  The 12th of December, that I suggested, is the day after our Christmas Rampage in Belfast, which might not be the greatest of ideas  ::)

The earlier we do it, the more time you'll have to ask Santa for an Archery set ;)

Last minute requests really upset the Elves!!!

Katy from the Mourne Archery Centre has advised me that the cost is only £5 per session and not £5 per hour, like I had said in my original post, so this is great value for money.

Katy also recommended the "Maghera Inn", which is just on the next corner to the Archery Centre, so it looks like we have a venue for a bite to eat and a pint afterwards, for those who want to stick around.

The 21st doesn't give us a lot of time to get organised and from past experience most people will be ready for an afternoon on the sofa, watching the Grand Prix, recovering from a night in the hills on the 5th.

I think Archery is something you would want to be doing fresh and relaxed  8)

I hope to be there too (do we have to wear tights!!!) + a kid or two  (for archery - not the drinking)

Maghera Inn does great food ( http://www.themagherainn.com/dining-1/sunday-menu ) but i'd be as happy at KFC or Top Of The Town in Newcastle
