Fairbow at Stratford Archery Club

Fairbow Archery Show
What a disappointment!  Visited the Fairbow show on Saturday and it was a dead loss.  The arrow making was interesting and the guy was really friendly and knowledgeable, but there was only one stall selling gear.  It certainly wasn't anything like the picture on the right.

Was also expecting to shoot for free as advertised and it turned out to be £19.00 per session and we were told to come back at 2.00 as the morning session had started and the second session was full.

Watched as some other people left too.  One woman who was contemplating buying a bow was told that after 3 arrows she couldn't shoot any more unless she paid another £9.00 for 3 arrows.

Another fellow archer from my club had a totally different experience and shot for free from 12.00 until 4.00, tried out different bows and had a great day - that's what I was expecting.  What a let down and I'm so sorry for my brother-in-law and wife who travelled from Wales for this event.  We all left feeling quite fed up.  It could have been amazing if there were more stands there and we actually got to shoot.
