Club bows and arrows are available to hire for those who do not have their own equipment, are just starting out, and are looking to experience archery before making any commitments. A fee is payable to cover insurance and an additional fee will be payable for each club arrow lost or damaged. A shoot fee is applicable on designated “Club Shoot” days. New members are expected to purchase their own equipment by the end of their probationary period.
It is advisable to contact one of our coaches before purchasing a bow as they will be able to steer you in the right direction as to what weight and draw length you require. Better to purchase a bow that suits you as you will be able to shoot this comfortably and will in turn enjoy the sport more if you do not spend all your time looking for lost arrows.
The club runs a canteen during every shoot with a variety of food and drinks available for sale at reasonable prices. (No EFTPOS available).
A shoot generally runs from 9am to around 2pm with a lunch break in between. Members are requested to be at the club, nominated and ready to shoot by 8.30am.
Details of our Shoot calendar, contacts, newsletters and club shoot results are regularly updated for your perusal on our Facebook Page. Type @GympieFieldArchers into your Facebook search field to find us.
