The scores count for the norwegians trying to make the cut to go to the European Championship in Tallinn.
We had people here from 7 different countries last year, it was a blast! And everyone is welcome!
One of our clubs archers (Michael H) is just back from the Bearpaw shoot at Eisenbach in Germany. Some more of my archery buddies are heading off to Confolens, France (Euro Bowhunting Championship) in June ... we Irish get around.
There some photos from our last club shoot (Mayo Archery Club) up on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/mayoarchery). It looks similar to what's on your shoot webpage. Best of luck with it.
I believe there is to be a direct flight from Dublin to Ålesund starting soon! I may be going there this summer to visit my nephew, who knows, I might pack my bow...
Some good pictures on your FB page, kinda similar, yes! We have a "3 targets-in-18-seconds"-target in our "Vikingstien" (the viking path, our For Braggingrights Only trail. A lot of fun to shoot, and also a good way to check how you function with a little added preassure
There's always next year, perhaps you could put us on the list of possible destinations...
So here is one of the shots in the new trail that we are making for the Norwegian Open in July. Now, if you miss... get another arrow out of your quiver, because you will not find the one you shot. It will be on its way to the Shetland Isles!
We have Kullamaa vibufestival in Estonia 16-17th Aug, same format as WA3D with elimination rounds, finals etc and covered by Estonian Tv, last year 7 countries participated, maybe a good warmup for your team members in prep WA3D Euros.
