The 5 last notes
I won(t participate any longer if the people have no face and it is impossible to see a smile.
This is a photomontage - not an original !
the new saison 2020 - 2021 has started at th association Compagnie des Archers du Bandiat.
We meet every Saturday at 2 p.m.
All persons interested in field archery are welcome. (Part of our members are English.)
We always shoot in the woods in small groups of 3 to 5 archers.
Because of the situation we can't yet decide for a date of the next competition.
Certainly we will organise a competition for the 20 years of our association in autumn 2021
The journalist Xavier Lavallée allows us to publish his picture from the competion on March 8th 2020. No one of the archers usually taking pictures was present and it was a cloudy day, which is never inspiring for photographers.
Reminder: You can consult the results in "Downloads" section of the site.
As we don't know what will be allowed in July, and on a proposition of the major of Javerlhac, the Compagnie des Archers du Bandiat decided to
cancel the archery competition of July 12th 2020.
