The 4th TAA Selfbow Workshop Announced

Posted on August 4, 2017 at 3:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Perry Jackson will be conducting the 4th TAA Selfbow Workshop up at Chevallan Archery Park over the Weekend of October 21st and 22nd of October 2017. There is also a shoot up there on that Weekend so after the Workshop there will be plenty of like minded Folks to show your new Selfbow's off too. Maybe even get a Shot in.

Just in case you have not been up to Chevallan yet it is located just East of Gympie Queensland, it's a great Traditional Archery Venue and Gary and Tamara are wonderful hosts

The Workshop Booking Form is on this web site in the "Shoot Calendar & Information" section, the direct link is:
There is only 8 places Folks so get in ASAP.

Gary and Tamara at Chevallan Archery Park will be supplying some Bays in a large Shed for the Workshop to be conducted so we will be under cover. They are also offering to Cater at a very reasonable price for the Workshop, Camping is available at no charge. If you require Catering please advise me and I will pass on the information to Chevallan Archery Park. If you have special accommodation requirements such as access to Power for a C PAP Machine etc please advise me and I'll let Gary and Tamara know.

Look forward to seeing you all.

regards Perry Jackson

Perry can also be contacted via email: [email protected]
