^^ Am I the only one disappointed by the arrow speed? It looked like they are slightly dodgeable, especially at longer distances. Still pretty cool though.

You are not. They're bound to be, considering the big, heavy and anti-aerodynamic tip at the end. But they have to be, in order to prevent injury. Thing is, it looks like a close-quarters thing, those arrows don't look like they could do long range

You can definitely dog out of the way, if you are quick enough. They are supposed to not be 'dangerous', and you can only really shoot within the bounds of the area they have set up. But the bows were for a range of power. If you have a powerful enough draw you could shoot pretty well from the back. 

 

You can use the heaviness of the arrow as an advantage, and shoot over the top of their cover and get them that way. But you need to leave cover to pick up the arrows, or the area is getting crowded, etc.

 

tldr its like dodgeball but with arrows and cover

Personally I would choose the cool factor of dodging arrows/seeing people dodge arrows even with the disappointment of your own shots missing :D

Lol yep. It was with Army Cadets in the UK, but I'm pretty sure they do group activities that you can hire them for.

Happy New Year! My new year's resolution is to continue to challenge my immune system in as many divey taco joints as humanly possible, and to vastly increase my sports bra collection.

 

 Other people may have different ambitions.
