Dunster Archery Week 2024 Entries Open

At last, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the release of this year’s Dunster Week prospectus and entry form.

Please take your time to read through the prospectus and in particular take note of the comments around completing your entry form correctly, including all the necessary details and additional comments if needed. Remember, you have one form to fill in, I have hundreds to process 😉

I’m sure you are aware, 2024 marks the 150th Grand Western Archery Meeting and there are a few things going on to mark the occasion. I really hope as many of you as possible can make it this year and join in the fun!

Friday’s Western will see the inaugural “Dunster Vintage Challenge” instigated by Pat Wright, Pete Webb, and Lee Parsons. The idea is that you shoot a recurve or compound from the 80’s or 90’s; Yamaha, Marksman, Hoyt, Browning etc, (anyone out there still have a Nishizawa??), aluminium arrows are a must and if possible, sights and stabilisers from the same era. Is anyone brave enough to shoot with a Kevlar string? Dress code will be GNAS dark green and/or white, or classic 80s/90s clothing which meets current dress regulations which will unfortunately discount double denim 🤣. There will be suitably vintage trophies up for grabs and maybe even a little something for the best turned out bow and best dressed archer. If you would like to take part, please mention this in the “Additional Information” box on the entry form as I would like to put everyone taking part on adjacent targets.

I think (hope) this covers everything and I look forward to receiving your entries.

Best wishes and good shooting
