I’m a lover of artificial light, but if you must insist on being lit by the big yellow orb, then there are now domes that sit on the roof, that collect sun-light very efficiently, pushing it down a mirrored tube, and into what looks like conventional light fittings. No need for windows. No glare (although what you mean by glare isn’t technically glare (at least not in the UK)), but it gets rid of that too! Cheaper than windows as well. For me, a couple of 60WATT bulbs would be infinitely preferable. DV

Way cool. I wonder if we can get it installed here….. <returns limping and clutching head> Nope, I have been informed that budgetary constraints mitigate against it. > For me, a couple of 60WATT bulbs would be infinitely preferable.

Uh uh. I’d go with hundreds. Tom

I think that shows a remarkable lack of dedication. go get you some roof-light-thingys! > For me, a couple of 60WATT bulbs would be infinitely preferable. > Uh uh. I’d go with hundreds.

I grew up in a 600year old house that is very dark. I can see in very poor lighting conditions, and am much happier under artificial light, and in slightly damp places (as it were). DV

You might want to check out my club’s website: http://www.geocities.com/archersofcaledon/ This was designed and built strictly as an archery centre. It’s a real joy to have a facility of this calibre for shooting. We’re in Caledon, Ontario, Canada.  If you ever travel across the pond, please drop by – you’d be most welcome!

Requirements for an ideal Archery Centre…. 1. An indoor area with comfy seats where archers can have a nice cuppa and jaw about stuff between ends. 2. An automatic scoring target so scopes are unnecessary and we can all get on with it at a reasonable speed. 3. A professional coach available to offer really helpful tips when requested. 4. A decent shop where they really do keep the advertised equipment in stock. 5. A tuning advice service – run by someone who actually knows how to do this correctly.

from.. I am also an architecture student in the UK, and am returning to archery now. Can I sugest that you use the following terms.         – "Ego Lodge"         – "Bio-Dynamic Quiver Store"         – "Sustainable boss recycling cycle" mmmm architectural bullshit… Lots of space. Good netting. Good cafe and a shop. All that’s needed. DV

Which Uni? If you are Uni, you might remember last year’s BUSA Outdoors (hosted by Imperial) at Lilleshall. That’s (I believe) the UK’s National Sports Centre. It’s kinda an Archery Centre as well, due to the fact that GNAS is there. Tom’s Thoughts for an archery centre? 90m indoors would be nice. Space for certainly clout and possibly flight outside. And tack on a decent size shop. Oh, and for location, somewhere where you don’t get much in the way of wind. (As in, 1500 feet above sea level could be a bit iffy.) HTH Tom

Just had another thought – a high altitude will mess with your arrow flight due to different pressure. The higher you go, the further your arrows fly, the higher your sight marks. Likewise, the lower you go towards sea level, the lower your arrows will fly, and your sight marks will be. Like a certain Jason Elam trying for a 58 yard FG against the Ravens at sea level when he’s only really capable of it at Mile High …. idiot. Tom

Hiya, I am a final year architecture student in the UK, but perhaps more importantly a regular archer. My thesis design project is to design a ‘National Archery Centre’. On this basis I would welcome feedback on existing good facilities i could perhaps visit, what you would want in an archery centre and any other information you may feel i would benefit from.. Thank you in anticapation. Regards, Simon Rispin
