DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide do-it-yourself tactile equipment for archery competition for individuals who are blind. There are three types of tactile equipment recommended for blind archery: a foot locator, a tripod, and a tactile sighting device. Foot locators can be made of wood based on diagrams from BBS Archery. A basic telescopic camera or music tripod which can be easily transported can be adapted to hold a tactile sighting device. Finally, a tactile sighting device is anything that can be used short term to enable the user to have a reference point using the sense of touch on the back of their hand. Examples include pressure buttons, half of a rubber ball, or a door stop. Anything that is soft or has a springy response can be used. The spring nature is important to prevent injury to the back of the bow hand. TITLE: British Blind Sport: Archery Section 3—Tactile Equipment. JOURNAL: BBS Archery: New Archers Welcome Pack.
