Behind The Scenes with Unison Corporate Team Building Event

We have been incredibly lucky with the weather so far, so we were pleased to be running a corporate team building event recently in the warm for once! No waterproofs needed. 

After the safety briefing, basics of shooting and of course, more about us as a club – our have-a-go archers were ready to get on the shooting line at Sywell Shooting Ground and put their new skills to the test.

It didn’t take long before a few archers were already ahead on pace, so we decided to up the challenge and set the target a little bit further back.  We can’t have it too easy now can we? 🙂 After shooting a few rounds each, we added in the challenge of score keeping and competing against team mates until we were left with the top three archers of the day. Adding up the scores from a head to head round, the top three were rewarded with an exclusive NAC medal! After a short (but prestigious) ceremony, the final winner was chosen. No speech needed but a group photo was taken at least for the next newsletter! (see below)

 We had great feedback from everyone and a few enjoyed it so much, they decided to join the waiting list for beginners sessions. Even better! We love sharing our passion for archery. 

Book your next event with us!

If you want us to run a similar event that doesn’t involve the usual office based team building exercises, we can help get you away from your desks and on the field! Email us on secretary@northamptonarcheryclub.co.uk anytime and we’ll get back to you asap. A huge thank-you to all of our have-a-go heroes from Unison – we look forward to seeing you soon on the next beginners course.

Mick Wins Bronze At Stage One of National Tour

Podium – National Tour Stage One, Barebow

Congratulations to Mick Lovell who won a bronze medal at Stage One of the Archery GB National Tour on Saturday 30th April, at Lilleshall. This is the first time that Barebow has been included in the National Tour as a separate category and Mick certainly made the most of this! The day presented us with near-perfect weather. This is an excellent start for Mick at the National Tour & we look forward to seeing him compete at others through the season.
