Medieval Archery – with a modern twist!
Archery has been a tool and skill humans have been using since the Stone Age. By the Middle Ages it was extremely important for all men to be practiced in archery. This is shown by a Law passed in England in 1252 stating that all men aged between 15 and 60 must have a bow and arrows of their own. And not only in England, who remembers the story of William Tell!
While archery may not be the force (pardon the pun) today as it was back then, what child (big and little) doesn’t want to have a go. And if I was a betting person I’d wager there may even be subliminal Physics Class lurking in the background too! Parents, think of this as hands-on-learning. Don’t worry, they’ll be safe!
New to this year’s ‘Kids Dig it’ Medieval Family Fun Week.
That is why we are introducing a new element of archery to our ‘Kids Dig It’ Medieval Family Fun Week in 2017. We are very excited to introduce XFire Games’ Archery Skirmish. Yes, its Skirmish, but with arrows!!
Archery Skirmish is the latest in XFire Games’ Next Gen sports, lending itself to people who need to “feel” the true sense of a battle. So in the Spirt of all things experiential, we just had to have it! Appropriate for children aged from 12 and up, this high-adrenaline sport which helps encourage team work, hand/eye coordination, fitness and achievement is sure to be a winner! So tell your kids its out with the Sedentary Screen Time and in with the Bows and Arrows!
XFire Games equipment is cutting edge when it comes to Archery Skirmish, the bows are strung to 30 pounds (no metric when it comes to the laws of Force with archery) so you know when you’ve been hit. But, guess what, you wont’ have the bruising like in paintball. The face masks not only look cool but keep your face out of reach from those pesky arrows.
And the arrows, with their patent foam patent tip, are able to travel over a 35m distance with precision accuracy… so if you find yourself staring down the stems of an opponent’s arrow, get ready to move quickly!
We know your kids are going to love this event, so book now!
