Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Shopping Centres Scare Me

I feel trapped. There isn’t a single time I attend where I don’t check my proximity to the exits, or imagine what I’d do if there was a fire, or worse, a shooter. The sense of being enclosed is unnatural, I can’t tell what time of day it is, I lose my sense of direction. It’s designed to be disorienting. It feels otherworldly. And never in a good way. They are designed to make you stay longer. They are by design, disorienting.

Junior Development Days are being conducted for young members of the Byron Shire Archery Club.

The purpose of the development days is to help young archers of the club gain the necessary physical and mental skills to reach their archery goals, whether that is to win the club championship or become an international champion.

In the first sessions the club introduces the importance of keeping a shooting diary and setting goals.

The second half of the sessions uses video playback to analyse the archer’s techniques noting where improvements can be made. Participants range from complete newcomers to regular competitors.

In May the club will be holding the second annual South of the Border Showdown, a tournament aimed at young aspiring archers.
