Archery 2.0... because it's always fun to shoot sh...tuff.

As promised, I was able to secure a second date for archery.

I've brought over the first 14 that were waiting for spots on the March 8th event. Because I'm unable to request payment when rsvp'ing I ask that you send payment via PayPal or e-transfer to [masked] (yes, only 1 t) within the next week. If you have not done so I'll need to remove your name to allow someone else to join who is serious about coming.

Hope to see you there.

The Wall Street Journal and The Globe and Mail recently hailed the simple bow and arrow as the ideal weapon of choice in the event of a planetary zombie take over. We WILL need to learn how to protect ourselves and using anything else is far too messy.

So... let's try archery.

Shawn's Archery was recommended by The Ontario Association of Archers' which speaks volumes as the caliper of his instruction.

We will receive 2 hours of instruction which includes:

- Safety briefing

- Introduction to equipment

- Basic shooting technique including hand, eye and  body placement

- Scoring

And of course... shooting a bunch of arrows with some accuracy games to finish it all off. No, I will not put an apple on my head so don't even ask.

We'll be finishing up around 6pm so I'd like to grab appetizers and/or dinner and/or drinks at a local restaurant afterwards. I'll add a separate meetup event when we get closer for ALL members to come hang out with us.

The cost of $39.55 is all inclusive and is due when you rsvp via PayPal or by e-transfer to [masked] (yes, only 1 t). Security answer for e-transfers is: archery. If you don't receive an email notification from your bank that the payment was accepted it means I didn't get it and you should followup with me and/or your bank.

Hope to see you there. This is going to be fun!

      I made sure I was only wearing my slippers so hopefully it was more of a foot nudge and less of a kick. ;)

    That was a pretty cool event on Saturday afternoon, I must say. I enjoyed the class...and the science behind it all.

    Hey guys... only one more sleep :-)

    We can't start until everyone is there so please be there at least 15mins early. If you're usually running late for things plan to be there 45mins early and you'll be right on time. Parking is a pain so you'll need extra time to find a spot. There's free street parking on Bowden if you can find it and paid at the Carrot Complex on the other side of Danforth. The place we're heading for dinner is in the next block so you'll only need to park once.

    The church faces Danforth and the entrance is off Bowden, down the stairs to the gymnasium.

      My apologies Dutch, was facilitating a workshop for an organization that teaches the adult blind and we went into overtime.

      March 22

    • Dutch

      No worries Richard. Sh...uff happens. :-) Unfortunately they still charged me for your spot so I can't give you a refund.

    That was a lot of instructive fun. Could have shot at things all evening if I was allowed to. Great idea Peter, and thanks for arranging this 2nd go.

  • Rohan D.

    Are there any spots left? I'd love to check this off my list..

    February 20

    • Dutch

      Hey Rohan, Only 2 haven't paid but there are so many waiting for a spot I'm afraid you're out of luck. I'll do it again in June.

      February 20

    • Rohan D.

      I understand.. Thanks..

      February 21

  • Dutch

    I'm only waiting on Debra and Daphne to confirm their spots. Everyone else is paid in full.

    February 17

  • Wendy B.

    Hi Peter, I e-transferred my payment for this event. Please confirm you have received it.

    February 17

  • Dutch

    Come on guys!!! I don't want to chase you all for money. Almost a week ago I created this new event and 3 days ago I sent an email to all on the rsvp list to request payment. Only 4 of 14 have paid. This is not my career but something I do for fun.

    If you're no longer interested in going... change your rsvp. Sunday night I'm removing all those that have not paid.

    • Berna

      Ahhh Sorry about that Peter! I am one of the ones who was interested but March 8th keeps looking tricky for me. I guess i'll pass for this one.

      February 7

    • Dutch

      Hey Daphne. Are you still interested in coming.

      February 17

  • Richard C.

    Sorry Peter done. I was confused by an email that said I was dis-invited, I assume now that was for the full class offering. Looking forward to shooting something.
