Traditional Archery training, Sunday January 13 2013

Beyond our intensive individual training in Traditional Archery, on Sunday 13th January 2013 our members from different parts of Greece but also from abroad had the chance to perform simultaneous training, proving for once more that distance of location is not an obstacle for us.

Athens, Thessaloniki, Komotini, and Brighton-Great Britain, for once, came together on Sunday morning in a common practice session of close range shooting, during which we tested some of our new bows and arrows.


Mr Aristodemus Nikiteas from Bringhton - Great Britain  shot some of his new war/hunting arrows. As he reports :
11/32 (8.7 mm)  shaft, tapered to 11" from the traditional  nock and 5 " from the arrow point to 5/16 (8.00 mm). Original shaft's spine #43, arrow length 30.5 ", - fitted with a hand made  stainless steel flat broad-head 137 grains,-  arrow balanced at 63% from the nock and arrow weight of 454 grains. Shot to 30 m with Hellenic type bow #52 @ 28". The spruce  arrow is fletched  with 4 X 4" turkey feathers....  and the earth moved!

We renewed our appointment, setting up the schedule of our individual training, with full intend for primary research and methodical work!
