About-Hardy Country Bowmen
Hardy Country Bowmen is a small friendly club, set in private grounds in the small Dorset village of Milborne St Andrew. In 2014, the club decided to change its name from "Crossways Archers" to "Hardy Country Bowmen"as the club had no further link to Crossways village. It was deemed necessary therefore, to change the club name, primarily to save any confusion as to where the club was situated. As the club remains in Dorset, it was decided to change the name to one that represented a club within the "Hardy" county boundary.
The club resides in secluded private grounds in Milborne St Andrew, approximately seven miles NE of Dorchester on the A354 (Blandford road). The club has some thirty members covering a wide spectrum of age and occupation.
Bow styles vary from the English Longbow and modern recurve, to the mechanical wizardry of the compound.
All bow styles used within the club grounds follow the "Rules of Shooting" stipulated by the UK's archery governing body, ARCHERYGB.
Club Shooting Times: Normal club shooting days are Sundays between 10:30 and 16:00. However due to the current Covid 19 situation the club has split its members into 'bubbles' who shoot for staggered 1.5 hour sessions.
