This weekend, other volunteers came from Bitola and we met them. They were from Estonia, Turkey, Macedonia and Netherlands. They hosted us last weekend and then we hosted them this weekend in Prilep. We were very crowded with volunteers here and it was nice.
I decided to arrange a Turkish course with the help of my Mentor Aneta's r after I came to work as a volunteer in Info Sega.
Before I came to Kavadarci, my motivation for the project was very high. Of course, I came across some difficulties before coming here. I began to realize differences and similarities between Turkey and Macedonia, especially in Kavadarci because the entire time I've been here until now.
There is something that you can not imagine before you go for visit.
Let`s tell you about general information about archery;
Archery is the practice or skill of using a bow to shoot arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus meaning ‘bow’ or ‘arch’.
Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat and was invented in the late Palaeolithic or early Mesolithic periods. The oldest signs of archery’s use in Europe date from around 10,000BC, while in Asia and the Middle East evidence suggests archery originated even earlier. Some of these evidence in my opinion come from Ancient times of Mesopotamia. As my ancestors have been living these territory a hundred and a thousand years. It passed away generation to generation. Also we are Kurdish people called the tîr û kevan(bow and arrow) .In modern times, it is mainly a competitive sport and recreational activity.
A person who participates in archery is typically called an archer. Someone who is fond of or an expert at archery is called a toxophilite – ‘lover of the bow’, from Ancient Greek τόξον (tokson ‘bow’) and φίλος (philos ‘friend’).
As a sport, archery requires skills of precision, control, focus, repetition and determination. It is available to be practised by all, no matter age, gender or ability, and is a widespread pastime in both developed and developing countries.
