On a cool May Sunday afternoon, the first session of the 2015 Beginners' Course took place at Gt. Preston. This was the first time we had run the course outside, and Karen and Ken had done a lot of preparation work to convert our previous six session indoor course into the new format four session outdoor course. But despite the chill in the wind, everyone seemed to enjoy the session.
Here are a few photographs from the afternoon.

Students take the shooting line for the first time.
Each student received 1-on-1 tuition from the club's qualified coaches.
There was lots of time during the day for plenty of practice.
Catherine watches closely as the next shot is prepared.
Following the interval, practice continues.
For a change, balloons were put on the targets to give the students something different to shoot at. A yellow balloon is just visible on the target second from the left.
An arrow caught in flight on its way to hitting the final balloon of the day.
