TAKE AIM - Archery NI StrategyIt is with great pleasure that the Archery NI Board presents Take Aim, the detailed strategy for 2020-2025. We have previously issued a summary version of Take Aim which has detailed the objectives which we would hope to achieve in the next 5 years, growing the sport and ensuring a successful and sustainable future for archery in Northern Ireland. The strategy is ambitious yet achievable, but the targets set out for the next few years can only be realised with the support and engagement of a number of stakeholders including, but not limited to, Sport NI, Department for Communities, Archery GB, local authorities and institutions in the education sector. The closest and most important stakeholders in delivering the strategy successfully are the clubs and members of Archery NI at all levels and the Board urges everyone to support the strategy and contribute to ensuring that the sport grows to achieve the success it deserves. The document (full version and shorter summary) can be found on the Governance page under the section titled Archery NI Development Plan files.

Important announcement Archers, Unfortunately, and with great regret, I have to advise we have taken the decision to cancel the Ron Bell Memorial shoot due to take place on 4th & 5th April. This is not a decision that we have made in haste, or without proper consideration. We have been closely following the news and advice from Government and we believe this is the correct thing to do given the current situation. We sincerely hope that you all stay safe and well and hopefully we all meet in the woods again in the not to distant future to share the craic and shoot a few arrows. Lough Cuan Bowmen
Early Season 720 It is with profound regret that I am postponing this competition but will look to establish a date so archers goals, dreams and ambitions can be kept alive for 2020. The fluid nature of the Covid19 situation changes daily and our future freedom to enjoy our sport in the next couple of months is being challenged. Archers are rightly nervous and as our numbers would be less than 100, with spacing on the line opportunities for human contact cannot be ruled out. I am not the only T.O having to make such a decision and I won’t be the last. Keep smiling try to keep shooting and I will get the date rescheduled as quick as possible in this Corvid19 climate.
