5 years of World Archery April Fools jokes
April Fools is a well-known tradition in European and North American culture, an opportunity on 1 April each year to deliver a harmless hoax and see how many people you can, well, fool.
At World Archery, we’ve been playing the April Fools game since 2014.
2014: Inverting the rings
Still the best to date – and we’ve even seen people trying it.
2015: Biggest fan
Because so many 10s!
2016: Four-vane minimum
More and more people are genuinely shooting four-plus vanes indoors.
2017: Less power
Possibly upset a few people…
2017: Schloesser switch
This could realistically happen.
2018: Speed shooting
A completely new discipline of archery?
Do you have an idea for next year? Tweet me @thecwells because my sense of humour is questionable at the best of times!
