    Default Any archery enthusiasts in the house?

    me & me non-photographic other half thinking of taking up a hobby, and i thought of archery. anyone here who shoots arrows for leisure? i'm done some research online and there seems to be 2 courses available... 1 for NUS Archery Club and 1 for the Archery Club of Singapore. any1 belong to these clubs? i'm keen to find out more...

    thanks in advance!

    alternatively, any members of a firearms organization like the Singapore Rifle Association around? i've always wanted to take up skeet shooting...

    Hmm posted to tis thread early but my post didn't come out..

    anyway, just for your infor there's another place to try out archery if you're intersted....
    ever since the one at marina ( Universal Archery ) closed..

    It's called DM Archery and is located at the 5th lvl of Bukit Merah SAFRA...

    The place is run by 2 brothers : Daniel and David Mok
    Tel : 63464788

    The opening hr daily are from 1.30pm till late..
    can give them a call before you go down to check if they're open..
    it's a friendly little shop...

    best thing about that place is that it's indoor.. so you don't have to sweat when trying archery out
    hehe..



    Well hope you enjoy the sport
    can email me if you've got enquiries : justins@cyberway.com.sg

    erm, i'm not sure actually... compound seems a little overkill since i'm just starting/learning. still haven't decided. i'll probably start with recurve (that's the beginner bow rite?) and then move on to compound.

    shadus, sure can start together... the more the merrier. but you beginner or like intermediate/advanced? later i paiseh leh...

    Not really. Beginners can start with compound too.
    Me shot recurve long ago before. Then due to reasons, i stopped. Now still got interest in archery as a hobby. but greatly prefer indoor shootings

    start wif recurve oso good as i'm not sure if the indoor range is build for compounds or not.

    It's more fun if you make your own bow and arrows....

    shadus, any suggestions on a good place to learn/start? trying to avoid the NUS club or Archery club of singapore, as they're all super inconvenient for me...

    Kebun Baru Community Club in AMK has a very active archery club. They have practices every Saturday & Sunday at Kebun Baru Primary School.

    The person to look for is Yee Wee, he's the Archery Secretary in the Youth Executive Committee.

    The club is very active in competitions around the island and even overseas... they have beginners to experts, recurve to compound bows...

    which part of island you stay, shadus? that will prolly determine the location somewhat... but there aren't many indoor ranges rite?
