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


Oh... Defo on the tights... I must have forgot to say it's mandatory in my original post  :D

The menu for the Maghera Inn looks very good.  I live on KFC, and junk food in general, so I think I'll treat myself on Sunday... Hope my body doesn't reject the good wholesome offerings from the Inn.  :P

... and KFC don't do Beer!!!

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  ;)

Following on from a great day's sport I have been having a wee search. http://www.archeryworld.co.uk/index.html seems to be a great site offering equipment and advice.

Sounds to me like somebody is getting the Archery bug   ;)...   Another great place to get Archery Equipment and good honest advice is Kilmore Archery Centre .  Prices are very competitive, even compared to stores, and the owner Wellesley will fit you for the correct bow and arrows.  I am a big fan of shopping on-line for almost everything, but from experience I think your first bow is something that needs to be fitted.  I think I was just lucky with my first set-up. There was definately a lot of educated guessing going on that could have been avoided  :P

Today really was a great day out.  The Mourne Archery Centre is so relaxed and welcoming and definately know how to make the sport of Archery fun.

Wrap up warm though, it does get a bit nippy!!!

Here's a few pics of the day...  Unfortunately not the best pics I've ever taken.  I was a bit busy bursting balloons from 20 paces:
