We have had a good week with the target bosses this week.
Our two 90 cm foam bosses have been getting a bit of a pounding over the last year and had become very soft in the centres, and as a result the stopping power has been greatly reduced. We hired a steel strapping tool and Pat, Graham and I repacked both last Thursday which has improved their condition considerably, and both now perform much better. For the materials used, thanks go to both:
On Saturday, Graham and I collected 4 x 130 cm used but good foam target bosses, and 1 stand, from Dave Michael (Hereford Company of Bowmen) in Rotherwas. These had previously been part of a sponsorship deal between Daves’ company and Herefordshire Archery Association and were used by Lugg Valley Archers.
We would like to extend the gratitude of our club and our members to both Dave and Andrew Hubbard (COO of Bathgate, the sponsors) for these targets that will certainly get well used in the coming weeks and months.
