It was a beautiful day at the range today, with sun so bright you needed sunglasses and shorts!
This month’s achievement shoot was a great deal of fun. Though it went a little slowly, we awarded many pins, including:
- Will and Brian: first outdoor pin @ 30 meters!
- Zach: his last 30 meter pin. It’s on to 50 meters (half a football field!)
- Arthur and Chris: Each earned their 5th pins at 30 and 40 meters.
- Elliot: Continued to show that you can outshoot people 10 or more years older as long as you practice more than they do. He earned his blue pin (#6).
Our next achievement shoot will be Saturday May 6th, and you can register right now on Facebook or through Eventbrite.
The complete list of pins and scores can be found on our student archery page.

We are switching to outdoor shooting distance season after one final indoor distance achievement shoot this Saturday. All adults and kids who are past the beginner stage will soon be practicing at 30 meters. How far is thirty meters? it’s 98.4 feet, so about 100 feet.
It’s a few feet longer than the distance from home plate to first base in major league baseball. It’s the length of a 737-500. It’s about a third of a football field, so imagine standing at the 33 yard line and shooting the “1st down” sign on the goal line.
We will be holding new archer lessons approximately every six weeks through August when we’ll add new ones to our schedule. Our new archer lesson schedule through August is as follows:
- March 11 (11am-1pm),
- May 27 (11am-1pm),
- July 15 (11am-1pm),
- and August 26 (11am-1pm).
Registration for these will be done through Eventbrite.
