Archery and Clay Bird Shooting can be experienced at Terrace Downs Resort, nestled on the edge of the Rakaia Gorge just 15 minutes from Methven and Mt Hutt in Canterbury. Newzengland operate 7 days a week (bookings are essential) in most weather conditions. Their Mini Olympic Challenge combines clay shooting, archery and golf chipping. A great group activity for friends and family, work colleagues, and hens or stag parties. All activities are safe, cater to all abilities and are heaps of fun! Owner Neil is a fantastic instructor (he spent 12 years as a senior instructor at The Royal Berkshire Shooting School in England) and the location is amazing.

CLAY SHOOTING
Watch as a clay bird is catapulted through the air. Trace its path with the barrel, keeping your eye focused on the clay before pulling the trigger. Your adrenalin will be racing when you blast that clay into smithereens. Safe family fun with an experienced clay shooting expert.

ARCHERY
Have a go at Archery in their beautiful pine forest range. The eye squints, the arm muscle tightens, the bow is drawn back and the arrow flies. Thwack! Off in the distance the target is pierced…. Well, at least that’s the theory! Give it a go, who knows maybe you really are the next Robin Hood!

MINI OLYMPIC CHALLENGE
In the Mini Olympic Challenge everyone competes in clay shooting, archery and golf chipping to see who gets the highest score. A great competition for mates, work colleagues, hen/stag parties. All activities are safe, cater to all abilities and are heaps of fun!
