I have long wished to have a go at archery. I figure that come the inevitable zombie apocalypse, it would be useful to have expertise in a non-technology based weapon.

Back in May, I was having a conversation with my boss about our group's previous xmas outing, in which we did paintballing. In previous years we have done go karting, and he wanted to keep the competitive activity theme. I mentioned that I think that this year we should do archery. My boss agreed and reminded me of this last month, so I arranged for our little team to do archery. That was yesterday.

It was great fun, and I did okay actually. Didn't embarrass myself at all and in fact, I was in the winning team (we split into 3 teams). I also got a hug off one of the instructors because I brought home-made cookies (Snickerdoodles if you was wondering).

Back in September, my husband, knowing of my interest in archer bought me a lesson. However, when I tried to book it, the first weekend that was available to book, and that we were both free was this weekend, tomorrow in fact. So, tomorrow I will be having my second go at archery this weekend.

I have checked, and there is an archery club local to me. I think that I may look into the costs and see what joining entails.

Next year, I am trying to persuade him to allows to do axe throwing, but that is proving somewhat more difficult.

Have any of you ladies done Archery before, or any other activity that may prove useful come the Apocalypse?

No I haven't but it sounds good fun I'd love to try. I would imagine it's quite difficult to pull back the bow if you're not used to it. By that I mean it's taut so you need to put some muscle in.

I've been Go Karting in Greece, loved it to bits. I have to admit I a jealous of your outings, sounds like Health and Safety haven't had a word. YAY for normal fun.

So, how did the second lesson go and the third?

The second lesson went great. Out of a group of 12, (my husband was the only person I knew), I came 2nd. YAY!

Poor hubby came last. I guess come the apocalypse, I will have to be the brains and the brawn

I had to do archery in this camp thing at school a million years ago. I was one of the better people in class but I remember my arm being sore the next day and the first time I shot one, it went right in the ground! LOL! Sounds like fun though!!
