Muttley Crew Shoot - 25/10/20

We regret to advise you, that after a lot of thought being given to how we could put on a restricted shoot, we do not believe that we can accommodate one. This will be the third shoot this year that we have needed to cancel, one to a storm, and two to the pandemic.

Our shoot dates for 2021 will remain on the shoot calendar in the hope that matters change for the better. All bookings that we have attempted to roll over will now be cancelled, and we will advise when, and if bookings will be taken for our February shoot in 2021.

We trust you will all understand the situation, and we hope to see you all in 2021. Best wishes to all our fellow archers and we wish you all, well.
