Went down to the Canberra Archery club for a beginner's session and used an bow and arrow for the first time. Seems to take minutes to learn and a lifetime to master. You get a nice bow, some coloured arrows, a leather thing that goes on the fingers of your right hand so you don't need to draw the string with your bare fingers and a guard worn on your left arm the purpose of which is uncertain to me. They asked me if I was left or right eyed. Huh? A quick test reveals right eyedness.
