Kent Archery Field 2024
Kent Archery Association venture into Field archery continues.
All events are hosted at the Gorewood, Petts Lane, Nr South Green Kent ME9
7RR, which is in close proximity of junction 5 of the M2 motorway Location:
Grid Ref: TQ 8557 6069 • X/Y 3 word location Deferring.Harder.Unstated
co-ords: 585573, 160690 • Lat/Long: 51.3151,0.66144507
Currently the re-development of the M2 J5 interchange is causing major traffic
problems. Hopefully by early spring there will be an improvement in access to
the Gorewood venue.

This is an excellent venue which has a long history of holding events of National
Championship standard.

At present these events are scheduled to be 12 or 16 targets, using World
Archery Field target faces and National Animal. Distance will be
marked/unmarked. Therefore some skill in distance judging will be required.
This makes it ideal for both experienced and novice field archers to partake.

The membership fee for the 2024 KAF season will be £20.00, and is open to all
KAA members. This can be paid by either cheque, or a direct bank transfer.
Membership fees will be due by 22nd February. A member of KAF will be
entitled to shoot at the 9 KAF events detailed in the calendar below.
KAF members will also be entitled to a reduced entry fee for the KAA Field
Championships 2024.

As detailed in the previously circulated KAF Terms of Reference, members will
be required to assist at some of these workday events. The work required will
vary from clearing and maintaining the course, to measuring targets and
preparing target faces.

The ten events that the KAF have committed to providing in this year will also
be open to KAA members that are not members of KAF. For these people there
will be a shooting fee payable of £6.00 per person.

At present there will limited shooting at the Gorewood venue outside of the
events detailed in the 2024 schedule. This is owing to current access
restrictions on the Gorewood venue. We now have an excellent venue and an
event calendar for the coming season. If you have any questions, please email
the KAF chairman at:
