Archery Evening

On the 22nd of September 2017, myself and other 148 (Barnsley) cadets went to 23 (South Elmsall) Squadron to partake in an evening of archery.

We helped set up all the equipment and were split into groups where we took turns to shoot, collect arrows and so on. To enable us to shoot we were shown how to hold the bow and fire effectively by trained staff. We all had at least 6 shots each, and it was clear to see that the cadets including myself thoroughly enjoyed it all, as archery is a relatively new activity for Barnsley cadets.

Also, we integrated well with the other Squadron and displayed efficient team work and leadership throughout the evening. It’s safe to say we all look forward to the next time we have an opportunity to do archery! Many thanks to the staff at 23 (South Elmsall) Squadron for hosting the evening for us.
