The Leicestershire and Rutland Archery Association (L&RCAA) was formed in May 1950 and is run by volunteers from different archery clubs within the county. The County committee meets once a month (except July) at the Kirby Muxloe Sports Club.

If you are a club within Leicestershire and Rutland, you are entitled to appoint a representative to come along to the meetings and report back to your club.

We extend a very warm welcome to any archer within the county and we are anxious to dispel any fears you may have about coming to the meetings. It is a good opportunity to meet socially with your fellow archers and to hear how county business is conducted.

Junior Shoot

Please see this poster for details of the next Junior Shoot.

L&RCAA's Second Bow Workshop

L&RCAA is offering a second evening Workshop for SENIOR archers who shoot either recurve, longbow or compound. There will be three separate events taking place at the same time - each event aimed at one of the bowstyles. The aim of these events will be to broaden the archer’s understanding of care, maintenance, improving shooting technique and competition preparation.

The COMPOUND session will be aimed specifically at those people who are beginners, interested in knowing more and may be thinking about buying a compound bow so no prior knowledge will be assumed.

Both the RECURVE and LONGBOW sessions will begin by examining bow setup. They will deal with measuring and recording settings, basic tuning and the selection and care of arrows amongst other things.

Areas for discussion and development will be open for selection by those attending. If, however, anyone has a pressing question which may need some preparation to answer on the night please email it to Jayne Curnock at the address below and she will forward it.

The event will take place at Syston Rugby Football Club, BARKBY ROAD, QUENIBOROUGH, LE7 3FE, Wednesday 22nd June 2016. Start time is 7:30 pm (prompt) until 9:30 pm.

Please register interest in the COMPOUND session by emailing Alan Tonge at alanptonge@hotmail.com and for the RECURVE or LONGBOW sessions Jayne Curnock at mmarcheryclub@tesco.net.
