I may have mentioned that particular ambition before. The reason I bring it up today is that we finally made the phone call and arranged to meet the people from Norther Archers archery club. We hopped in the car and went to the range to say hello and fill out application forms for the beginner’s course. It’s probable that we’ll have to wait till January to actually do the course but at least we’re on the waiting list.
We may still investigate other clubs as there doesn’t seem to be much accommodation for the kids at Pennant Hills and I know at least one other place says they’ll accept kids as young as 6.
When we were asked “Why archery?” I just had to confess to my long standing desire to be an outlaw.
One of the guys said “Didn’t you want to be Maid Marian?” (Because little girls always want to be the princess that needs rescuing but never the hero?)
“Hell no, unless I can be the Maid Marian from the kids’ TV show that Tony Robinson did.”
He looked thoroughly confused.
