Competitions Need Judges - how about becoming a judge?

Without judges, no competition can take place and, in Somerset, judges are few and far between. Why not join this select band? Whether you are a competition archer or only shoot for fun, judging is a way to put something back into the sport you love. AGB has put an introduction to judging on their website,  if you are interested, please click on this link.
If you would prefer to see what is involved without commitment, please email me and I will try to arrange for you to ‘shadow’ me at one of the forthcoming competitions.
