Re: Camp ovens

Guy, You may want to check out the Australian Camp Oven Festival which is held in Millmerran just west of Toowoomba every second year - the next one is on over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th October 2020. Camping bookings normally open in May and they fill up fast but it is a great weekend. There ar...

Re: Bow Division for Bio Composite Bows.

Kendaric,

I hear you but I guess for my part, I saw "When strung and at brace height, the string must not touch the belly of the bow at all" and thought "longbow". Although I accept that is a simplistic view, but I like simple.

Re: Bow Division for Bio Composite Bows.

Daryl, You may already know this but there are actually three styles of longbow outlined in the TAA Equipment Guidelines. 1. Longbow - as you have described it above. 2. Hybrid Longbow - basically a reflex/deflex longbow as long as the string does not touch the belly of the bow when strung. 3. ELB -...

Re: Bow Division for Bio Composite Bows.

Hey Daryl, I have for many years shot these Grozer bio composite bows and have sometimes been put into self bow as you say and occasionally even recurve divisions. More recently, at most trad shoots, I am in the "Horse Bow/Asiatic Bow" class as per the TAA Guidelines. For me the issue is more about ...

Re: NAFA Traditional Rendezvous; 31st March/1st April 2018

A great weekend even though numbers were down on previous years. Comm Games starts this week and the rain on Friday probably scared some folk away even though Saturday and Sunday were fine. About 50 archers enjoyed two 15 target ranges (shot both days alternating 1 arrow and 2 arrow rounds) along wi...

I hear you Greybeard.

Have you noticed a "slowing" of posts and comments on OzBow as more people have begun to use Facebook?

I have experienced this personally more than once. And I'm told the same thing applies at 3DAAA club trad shoots as well. One rider here... t...
