Boorman School of Archery

For the past few weeks, my husband Steve and I have been attending an archery course through Boorman Archery.  We have been under the instruction of some amazing teachers, Sheila and Muriel.  They were REALLY patient with all of us in the class, and had plenty of great advice and stories to share.  

They took us through the basics and focused a lot on our form.  We had a chance to try out a few different types of bows... from recurve to compound, and even a long bow!   I gave myself some pretty interesting arm bruises along the way, but it was still a great learning experience.  It was great to be able to be learn proper form and start out in archery focusing on the basics rather than getting wrapped up in the gear and equipment first (especially when you have no idea what you want/need at first!).  That way we walk away with advice and knowledge to start out!  

Yesterdy was our last class, so I brought along my camera to take a few photos.  We "graduated" and earned our certificates from Boorman School of Archery too!  

If you’re interested in archery, I would highly recommend taking a class like this through Boorman Archery!   It was really a lot of fun and a great experience!

PS.  For those that are interested in the archery course and live in the Lower Mainland, BC – you can sign up and register at Boorman Archery in New Westminster, BC.  The course takes place a couple doors down at Royal City Archers.
