The Sport Manawatu team headed to the Manawatu Arch- ery Club in Palmerston North and we tried our hand at using a bow and arrow. You start off by working out which eye is more dominant. You're then given clear instructions on where and how to stand. We had six shots each. If you're like me, your arms will be shaking by the end of your six attempts. We attempted a few shots inside the hall at short range to get our techniques correct and then we ventured outside to try our newly learnt skills in natu- ral conditions at longer range. I have to say, I'm glad there was no one standing behind my archery board for the first few attempts I had. It was completely different outside and I think I would be a better flag shooter as most of mine went way pass the board. After a few more attempts I was on the money hitting the bulls eye. I guess practice makes perfect or my competi- tive side kicked in. Archery is a great sport for boosting your mental and physi- cal health and fitness. It's great for improving patience and, of course, teaching an important safety lesson. It's also really good for improving your focus as it requires mental fitness; archers develop their focus, flexibility, and attention skills. It also works on your upper body strength -- the stronger you are in this area the more control you'll have over the arrow. Archery is an inclusive sport, it can be done by able-bodied and disabled people. People with the most severe disabilities and even the blind are able to join in by using special tactile equipment. I recommend giving archery a go as a family activity or some- thing to do as a workplace for team bonding. You'll soon see who's the most competitive and it's an activity that both men and women can excel at. If you are interested in trying archery or a new sport, there are a number of teams or clubs in our region that you can join. For more information visit sport manawatu.org.nz/find sport.

BOWLS Johnston Park Bowls History was created for the Johnston Park Bowls club when two members met in the final of Bowls Manawatu's National Club Singles event for women played on the Palmerston North Bowling Club greens on Saturday, January 28. Robyn Schischka and Lyn Jensen both had to defeat formidable players to reach the final of this centre event and never before has the Johnston Park Bowls club been represented by both sides in the final of a centre event. Robyn's greater experience was invaluable as she reached the target of 25 shots first, defeating Lyn by 25-14. This is Robyn's fifth Manawatu Centre title, having won two previously when living in the Wairarapa, to go with two triples titles in this and the previous season, and now qualifies Robyn for the coveted Gold Star award. Incidentally, Robyn's husband, Brian, has reached the semifinals of the men's event to be played on February 18.

Inner peace, peaceful sounds and playful pups CLUBS AND GROUPS Gen Kelsang Demo is the Resident Teacher of Amitabha Kadampa Buddhist Centre in Palmerston North. The New Zealand-born Buddhist nun has studied, prac- tised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under the guidance of her spiritual guide, Vener- able Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, since its beginnings in New Zealand. In her traditional yellow and red robes, she is a distinctive figure in the Manawatu and recognised for her gentle man- ner and kindness. For the past six years she has been teaching meditation classes at Whang- anui prison, helping to bring peace of mind to prisoners. Her weekly drop-in classes at the Community House in Manchester St, Feilding, are well attended by regulars but are open to anyone who is interested in learning how meditation can help their life. On February 11, she will be giving a free public talk on meditation from 7pm to 8pm at which all are welcome. FEILDING MUSIC SOCIETY: The Feilding Music Society has been a part of Feilding for the past 80 years. It provides a monthly concert for the enjoy- ment of its members and the wider public. Although as a music society we provide classical'' music, the programmes are very much broader based and now encompass contemporary and humorous items. They include a variety of items, ranging from choral, piano and other instruments to verse and vocal solos. The FMS Ladies' Choir, under the auspices of the society, has been in existence since the inception of the society and in that time has had only two conductors. Following the resignation of our second conductor, Margaret Crichton, from the beginning of this year the choir is being led by Margaret Ward, with Christine Edge continuing in her long-standing role as accompanist. The choir was originally formed from the membership of the society to provide items at its monthly concerts, singing mainly classical music. As times have changed so the repertoire has changed to accommodate a wider variety of tastes. As part of the changing image of the choir, we are now able to combine with a recently formed men's choir. The choir is also available to provide entertainment to vari- ous groups within the com- munity. At the beginning of this, our 80th year, we would love to wel- come new members to the society and also the ladies' choir. For further information, phone President, Christine Edge 323 7715. Secretary, Jan Thomson 323 1165. Music Director, Margaret Ward 323 1332. Feilding Dog Training Club By Des Richards Waitangi Day saw great dog activity at the club grounds at Timona Park.
