Fun , Family and Fellowship
You will find that the Field shoots that are held at all levels (Club, Branch, National and International) are so much fun, you will meet people from all walks of life with a common interest in Archery. It is a healthy activity as you are walking around the archery course, in generally shady, and a bush seting. Being sun smart helps the enjoyment too. It is an activity that the whole family can enjoy together. The fellowship and the sharing of knowledge or just plain sitting around a campfire in the cooler months chatting about everything is a wonderful thing to experience.
