A list of all Scottish archery competitions is available from the Scottish Archery Association website.
Been a while since we’ve had an event to announce but its pretty big. We will be returning to indoor shooting in September. The current plan is to go indoors starting:
Wednesday 15th September 7pm – 9pm Saturday 18th September 1pm – 3pm
The booking system will continue to operate so please book early as we suspect its going to get a little frisky. We really are constrained in spaces due to spacing indoors and the narrowness of the hall. Sharing will be caring wither our editor likes it or not!
Sundays will continue to be an outdoor session throughout the year. Starting around 10am and running till hypothermia starts to become a real issue (probably between 12 and 1pm).
Throughout June, July and (all being well) August, GA will be shooting Wednesday evenings (6pm til dusk) and the weekends (2 sessions 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm) both days. COVID might be a pain the arse and a horrible disruption to our lives, but we’ve actually never had so much archery going on down the field. Details on times/how to book.
Glasgow Archers have a new landlord. Its Hutchison’s Grammar School and the good news is they intend to keep Craigholme (to be called H@PP – Hutchisons @ Pollock Park) as a community sports hub. They even don’t seem to mind the infestation of archers they have inherited. Early days but much hope for the future.
4 months on and we’ve still little information to go on. However, after our long weekend of access 2nd – 5th April … we arent going to get any more – at least not under the current administration. Events may be on the horizon.
Not so much an event as an announcement. As of 6/12/2020, Glasgow Archers have had to close their doors for the foreseeable future. Nothing to do with COVID, the facility we shoot at has been sold and our let has been terminated. Hoping that the new owners when announced will be amenable to having resident archers.
Due to a recent cancellation MRM Archery have 3 places available on their beginners course November 7th & 14th at Westquarter & Redding Cricket Club, Falkirk – 10am to 12noon. Places allocated on a first come, first served basis. These beginner courses teach the basics of how to shoot safely and are required to enter any archery club. Email email@example.com if interested.
The Glasgow Archers Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, the 18th of November at 19:30pm. This will be an online meeting so get ready to exercise your franchise from the comfort of your own desk, couch, recliner chair or while tucked up in bed. Details of exactly how we will do this will follow as soon as we’ve tested our chosen platform out.
Going into October, we are having to shoot outside. Yup, every session is now a frostbite/ Ironman! Shooting times are Saturday mornings 9am-12 noon and Sundays we have 2 sessions .. 9-11am and 11-1pm.
If you haven’t shot outside in winter before … perhaps have a look at this article. Dressing for Winter. It may speed up the learning curve! ;o)

GA will be opening to members of other clubs from Monday 13th July – 1st session on that evening. You must be a member of Archery GB & Scottish Archery and have your own kit.
