Winter Leagues

First of all, thanks to those who came and helped replace the faces on our butts on Saturday the 5th. We had a good turn out and we were able to get them all replaced in about 2 hours. Check out the pictures here. Now we’re all set for winter leagues.

On that note. The turn out for our sign up and sight in week has was pretty lacking. Make sure everyone knows that leagues are starting tonight at 7:00 PM. Let all your buddies know so we can have a successful year.

Local archers can hit their butts with both hands.

Over the last two weekends several members of our club and other local archers participated in the Utah Open in Salt Lake and the Idaho Open in Pocatello.

I thought I’d take a moment to list some of the local archers who shot well.

Utah Open:
Seneca Francis — 1st Women’s Open
Darrin Baird — 1st Men’s Bowhunter
Kerry Baird — 3rd Men’s Bowhunter

Idaho Open:
Seneca Francis — 1st Women’s Open
Amber Christensen — 3rd Women’s Open
Shelby Remund — 2nd Women’s Bowhunter
Kerry Baird — 1st Men’s Bowhunter
Darrin Baird — 2nd Men’s Bowhunter

Those of you at the meeting last night are already well aware of this. For the other 98% of us here’s the plan for the Fall league we’ll be having this year.

Fall League will start on November first at 7:00 PM at the archery building and will run for the next 6 weeks on Thursday and Friday night. The cost will be $25.

On Thursday nights will be the “League” night and on Friday we will have novelty or teaching nights.

Novelty Fridays
Week 1: Bow Tuning
Week 2: Poker Night (bring quarters)
Week 3: Intro to Tournament Shooting
Week 4: Team Shoot
Week 5: Blind Draw Teams
Week 6: Open, if you have any ideas for what you’d like to do this week email us with the contact form.

Compounds at the Olympics

Check out this article I was linked to from the NY Times.

Compound Bow, a Sport’s ‘Ugly Stepchild,’ Is Still in Exile

Doug Mills/The New York Times

At the 2012 Games, archers used recurve bows at Lord’s Cricket Ground.



LONDON — More than 100 athletes competed for 12 Olympic archery medals over eight days at the majestic Lord’s Cricket Ground, but the archer who may be the most dominant in the world spent most of the time sitting at home in Idaho.
