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, co-ords: 585573, 160690,  Lat/Long: 51.3151,0.66144507

 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 all the KAF events detailed in the calendar below. Entry to the county champs does incur additional costs.

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 six 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 £5.00 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.
