Cloth of Gold is holding an Introduction to Field Archery on Sunday 16th of October 2022, if you know of anyone who would like to have a go, they must be an experienced archer with affiliation to the EFAA, GANS or another archer association.  All the information you need is below. 

An open invitation to all Archers (target or otherwise) to take part in our field shoot.

We are holding this day for those who do not normally take part in field archery, but we also welcome other experienced field archers from clubs other than NFAS.

There will 20 x 3D targets, double pegged. The “A” pegs are shot first then the second round is shot from the “B” pegs. A full explanation of this and scoring will be given prior to the start.

The course is designed so that you have the opportunity for a tea break at regular intervals.

Please arrive by 09:30am for registration and briefing prior to a 10 am sharp start, the finish will depend on how many attend but you are free to leave whenever it is safe to do so.

Participants take part in groups of no more than 5 which includes one Cloth of Gold member.

There are many deep ponds in the wood and we use these to make the shoot more challenging but it does mean that there are steps and slopes to be navigated and is therefore not suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking.

The cost for the day is £10 which includes tea/ coffee etc. (Juniors/Cubs £5)

We ask that anyone wishing to come lets us know in advance so we can manage refreshments and estimate club members needed.

No Broadheads or Bodkins.

Bring some lunch and sturdy shoes/boots.

To book a place please email or for further information call our club chairman Lawrence Wiles on 07814014991

If a member of your club is organising a group then you only need to advise them of your intention to attend.

We are located at Stable Wood, Red Lion Lane, Great Gaddesden, Hertfordshire HP2 6EZ

The course and the practice butts at Cloth of Gold will be shut from 20th September to 2 October, this is so that a new course can be relayed for the open shoot on the 2nd October. Sorry for any inconvenience but you will have a new course to shoot afterwards.
