Two years ago I was asked by the management team at Walesby Forest Scout Activity Centre, to put together a team that would be able to provide a taster to archery for approximately 3000 Scouts and Guides, this was to be delivered over a one week period, between July 27th to 4th August 2007. This was to be the week when the World Scout Jamboree Camp was to be held and Walesby Forest was to be a satellite link to the main Jamboree, at Hylands Park in Essex.

During the early months, it was difficult to recruit people to the team. This was due to several factors, the main being, people were unable to commit their time so far in advance due to work commitments and family requirements.

After a slow start and several broken promises, there were enough people to run the first training course. Two training courses were run at Walesby Forest Scout Activity Centre and the nucleus of the team began to take shape.
