What does Merida and Katniss have in common? 


They are both good in Archery, oh, not pala good lang, they are super duper good in that aspect. haha...And because I like Katniss and Merida, I also want to experience playing Archery. #bucketlist

Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow which is "arcus" in Latin. 

Mommy Ethel, a fellow Mommy Blogger invited a few Mommy Bloggers to try archery at Kodanda Archery Range. I was lucky nakahabol ako sa list, thanks to Mommy Rackell who informed me about it.  Kaya naman sabay ang schedule namin ni Mommy Rackell. Mas masaya kasi if may kasamang friend di ba, hehe...

Kodanda, means "he who has a bow"(sanskrit origin).

Me and Mommy Rackell

Before playing, the staff of Kodanda, Kuya Ver, assisted me in putting the necessary gears for playing. 

thank you Mommy Rackell for the photos :-D

grabbed from google
Then another staff orient and taught me the proper posture and correct handling of the bow and arrow and how to hold, aim, and shoot. First reminder is that we should listen daw muna sa whistle before shooting baka nga naman may matamaan kami. Then another whistle if kukunin na namin ang mga arrows sa target sheet. 

I am ready to play! 

feeling Katniss and Merida!

And because it is my first time, kinakabahan ako baka kung saan tumama yung arrow, worst is baka tumama sa ibang tao...hahahaha...

Playing archery is aiming for the bull's eye, in my first few shots, sa gilid lang ng target tumatama ang arrow. After warming up (naks), naka-bull's eye ako mga friendhsip! Yehey! (insert happy dance)...

bull's eye #proudofmyself

I did not know paano ko ginawa yun, I only followed Kuya Ver's instructions eh. I am so proud of myself. I am not bragging ha, it just gave me confidence, kaya ko pala mag-excel kahit first time kong ginawa. Kaya lang di ko na naulit ang bull's eye. hahaha...

After playing for an hour, this is my target sheet looks like, not bad for a first timer. ^_^

Thank you so much Kodanda Archery for the experience. It is truly thrilling and fun!

  1. Looks like pwede na pang double kay katniss :3 I hope I can try it too sometime. THAT is definitely on my bucketlist ;D

  2. Super bitin yung 1 oras mommy! Ang sarap lang ng feeling, let's try it again.. Crossed out na sya sa bucketlist natin ha and of course Congratulations! Naka bulls eye ka, samantala ako saktong sakto.. Sakto sa labas ng paper. Hehe.

  3. Naku, I went there by myself lang. Sama dapat si hubby kaso nabusy sa work. Buti nalang na enjoy ko din. Feeling Katniss takaga ko!

  4. one of the things i wished to try but too bad we are so far away and i don't think we can have facilities like that in our place in the near future. such a nice experience

  5. Galing! I'm inggit because I've always wanted to try archery, too. Parang ang astig lang. That and gun firing!

  6. I tried this once a few years back in one of our outings. Unlike you, I didn't get the bull's eye but it was fun!

  7. I joined the archery club when I was in high school, only hanggang first two meetings lang ako then tinamad nako. It was after classes kasi so medyo late na. Though I would love to give it another try. Hopefully mapuntahan ko yung place sometime next year :D

  8. That looks a lot of fun! I wanna try archery too. Galing mo! Not bad talaga for a first-timer. :)

  9. Do they have equipment for kids? I was hoping we could try out as a family.

    1. Maybe they have, kasi kasabay namin that time is mga students eh. :-D

  10. Wow, I would've joined if I knew about this. Looks like you really enjoyed this experience. ^^ Mayaya nga si loves. haha Thanks for the info Mam Lally :) Kudos for the bullseye *clap clap*

  11. I'd love to give this a try! It looks like so much fun!

  12. I like to try archery too. Parang Daryl of walking dead naman (maiba lang hahaha). Galing mo mommy ha.

  13. awhile back my son was jonesing to be an archer because he's seen too much of Brave and Juan Dela Cruz, maybe i'd let him try Kodanda when he's a bit bigger. + maybe i should try it, too! this really looks like a very interesting sport

  14. Would love to try that someday :-) My daughter loves to play archery at home hehe.

  15. Wanted to try archery too! I wonder if I can do a bull's eye too! Congrats sissy! :)
