Golden Gate JOAD archers and volunteer staff upped their game at our November 9th Achievement Shoot. Achievement Shoot Wrangler Shabbir and Head Coach David Chan worked to give our indoor distance achievement shoot a more competition-like feel, adding AB and CD lines and timing, along with a professional timing system. Thanks to all those who turned out to shoot in the perfect weather at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park Archery Range.
