Muscovy Archers is a friendly archery club local to the Liskeard/Dobwalls area. Formed in the mid-eighties, the name of the club was not inspired by Russia or Cossacks but by a flock of black and white ducks that used to share the farmyard with the aspiring archers, with little idea of the danger that they were in. Perhaps surprisingly, none of the ducks suffered any harm as the archers learnt their craft.
We have an indoor range which we meet at on Wednesday and Friday evenings each week. We also hold field archery events in various woodlands attracting archers from all over the South West. The club has a range of archery equipment which members may use and we produce our own monthly newsletter to keep everyone up to date with news and events. We also hold archery evenings for other clubs and organisations and we attend country fairs and rallies to raise funds and promote the sport.
As members of the National Field Archery Society (NFAS) we have full public liability insurance and the NFAS also issues a bi-monthly newsletter.
