(In Norwegian: Bueskyting – Hundeidvik bueskyttere)

The archers meet once a week in Hundeidvik. On the 10th November six of the members participated in their very first championship in Ålesund. Among them, the family of Tor Aage, Tone and Halvor Langdal (10), who say they are happy to have a common interest.

The one with the best results in Ålesund was Simen Alvestad; the fourteen year old reached second place in class Recurve 4 – for those aged 10-16.

The archers welcome new members and you may borrow equipment.  If you prefer to buy your own it will cost approximately 3000 kroner.

More families are part of the group. Ole and Irene Høibak are both archers. “Being able to take part instead of watching our children perform is nice. We like doing things together”, Irene says.

Ole, who is leader of the club, has been performing the sport since his childhood in Northern Norway. He tells us that the archers in Sykkylven are aged 8 to 50, and live all over the village. You can come and go as you please. In Hundeidvik, the archers shoot 30 arrows before taking a break, then they shoot 30 more.

Would you like to participate?
