G/Day Folks, for those of you who don't know my role on the TAA National Committee, I am the Traditional Skills Officer. I am looking for wide variety of Craftsmen INCLUDING JUNIORS who would like to participate and display their Skills and items such as handcrafted Bows, Arrows, Knife making, Leatherwork or any other Traditional Archery related Gear in a craft display at the 2018 National Muster in October at Tenterfield Traditional Archer's

It's not important that your Traditional Craft Skills are finely honed, what is important is that you are out there preserving the Skills of our forefathers and are keen to ignite the passion in others to continue the legacy of passing on Archery's Traditional Skills

If you are interested please contact me via my email address or send me a Personnel Message

2018 National Muster Update

From Bob Rogan, Tenterfield Traditional Archers

Re: This year's Muster in October.

We had a club meeting yesterday and resolved to:

Provide roving security during the day at the camp ground whilst members are at the shoot.

Provide a shuttle bus to and from the camp ground at no cost to anyone who uses it. It will only be a small, possibly about 10 seater but can run back and forth as needed.

We will also possibly have a car parking attendant at the grounds just to manage vehicle parking to ensure unimpeded exit for when they are leaving etc.
