archery Stag Party in bristol
A test of nerve, skill, accuracy, hand/eye coordination, poise, balance and the ability to handle potentially lethal weapons... All in the hands of a group of hungover blokes. Yep, game on!
You'll be given safety instructions, then a lesson on aiming and firing the arrows. And while we might jest, please do listen up because these things really do have the lethal potential and at the very least could leave you having to answer some very awkward questions from the bride-to-be about the groom's new piercing.
After a practise session it will then be time for you merry men to get your game faces on and in a series of rounds you'll see exactly which of you is the best shot.
England has a fine tradition in archery, therefore to uphold this heritage StagWeb expects that every stag will do his duty.
