New Bosses from The Harpur Trust

We are delighted to announce that two new Pro-Boss archery bosses have been purchased for the Club with support from The Harpur Trust 450th Celebration grant programme, which is a grant programme specifically aimed at supporting small local organisations that would benefit from additional funding.


You can see the bosses being tried out on our field for the first time here. They are made of a resilient multilayer foam base with high density inserts and are much easier to carry and position the previous foam bosses. The majority of use will be indoors where the former heavy bosses were difficult to carry into the hall.

proboss-v2-layoutThe layout of the bosses was designed by OVA in collaboration with Pro-Boss who put them together to our specification, and made the bosses useable in multiple configurations.

Many thanks to the Harpur Trust for their generosity, and happy 450th birthday!

Sunday 9th October

1We will be shooting outside today in the sunshine.

It’s forecasting 14 degrees in the sunshine but the wind is quite chilly, so bring warm clothes, plenty of layers, and something that you can shoot in that won’t catch or snag on your arm.
