1066 Field Archery was set up by Roger Massey, himself a keen Field Archer. Roger is a member of two Field Archery clubs down in East Sussex, Senlac Field Bowmen and Archers of Battle. He is a National Field Archery Society (NFAS) Coach and loves nothing more than shooting with friends, wanging arrows at 3D targets in knarly woodland. Along with his son Jack, he regulalry attends competitions in the South of England, in addition to National Championships.
In 2017, Roger won the NFAS Southern Championships shooting in the Gents Hunting Tackle (HT) Category and Jack won Junior Boys in HT. Jack was also succesful in winning Gold in the NFAS 3D championships, out doing his Dad who came 2nd out of a field of over 75 archers in the HT Category. That was back in May 2017 and Jack has only just stopped referring to his dad as the first loser!
In addition to shooting HT, Roger also enjoys shooting American Flatbow, English Longbow and pretty much anything that bends.
For Roger, Field Archery offers much more enjoyment than just shooting arrows. He enjoys understanding how things work and making things. It started with arrows, then strings, then casting 3D targets and more recently making Flatbows and take-down recurves. It's something special to turn up at a competition and shoot a bow you've made and have the arrows you've made land where you want (most of the time)!
Roger has been lucky enough to shoot with many very experienced field archers who have been more than happy to share their knowledge gained from experience. This is something he's always more than happy to pass on.
