Beginners Archery Course
A beginners archery course will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.
This class is for ASC Members and their children 8 and older. The class will teach you basic archery safety and teach you the basic bow shooting skills. Bows and arrows will be provided.
The first 90 minutes will be instructional with plenty of shooting followed by 30 minutes of additional supervised shooting.
For children under 15, a parent or guardian must remain for the entire class. Register through the following link: http://ascintroarchery.eventbrite.com
First come, first serve, as class size limited due to available instructors.
I have received multiple e-mails requesting beginners archery training classes from club members and non members. I am in the process of procuring equipment to meet this demand, however for club members; I can currently address archery training on a two or three participant basis. A beginnerís archery course is being planned for May.
It will be announced on the website once the date is finalized.
Four new bag targets (for the range) are now on order and will be delivered shortly.
As previously announced, we are ordering several traditional recurve bows (in various weights) to add to the clubs inventory of Genesis (compound style bows). They should arrive during the month of May and will be announced on the website as well.
There was a club work party on Saturday, April 20th and I would like to thank everyone that came out to help at the club and on the archery ranges specifically.
Work party crew consisted of the Lampes Family, Gena Tsakiris, Maureen Campiola, Jerry Rybicki, Bill Mowatt, Jimmy Lumbard, and Matt Lumb (Tomís son).
Please join us. I welcome comments, suggestions, and participation that will help grow ASC archery. You can find me at the archery range, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
