First Archery Tournament of the Year

Our first Indoor Archery Tournament of the year is coming up on Saturday, March 11th! For fair competition, competitors will be separated by age, gender, skill level, and type of equipment. The shooting distances will also vary by age, younger archers shooting at closer targets than older archers. The first group will shoot 1:00-3:00pm, and the second group will shoot 3:00-5:00pm – call John at 689-3514 to sign up and pick your time slot! There will be prizes for all classes, but more importantly, it’ll be a great day to have fun and meet people with the same interests! If you don’t feel you’re competition ready, John has classes available – he is a Certified Level 3 Instructor through USA Archery, so he’ll be sure to teach you something no matter your experience level! Classes are $5 per hour, with a suggestion of 4 hours – open shooting is free for your class. If you’re only looking for practice, open shooting is just $2 per person, or you can purchase individual or family memberships by the month or year. Classes and Open Shooting are most Saturdays (Classes 8-10, Open 10-12), but please call ahead to check availability. The Indoor Competition is $10 per archer, which includes the cost of our equipment should you need...

Our first project will be decoupaged votive candle holders – a simple but fun project for anyone familiar with crafting, and an easy starting point if you’re new. Tissue paper & decoupage glue make for an easily replicated project with few needed supplies, and with a glass candle holder base, they’re safe for actual use and not just display. Come join us for snacks & fun! The first class is Friday, February 10th, starting at 5pm until approximately 6:30....
