Shoot archery like Gale (not as well as Katnis, but not too shabby, nonetheless)

Actually, I'll probably shoot more like Peta, but one can dream. The Gainesville event happened while I was working in Wisconsin, so I had to jealously read about it.

For a suspiciously cheap $20, we get lessons and equipment (bows, arrows, & arm-guards). For those who already know what they're doing, you can go ahead and start shooting while we're getting up to speed. While driving there, you'll be able to see the targets from the road.

Note: to avoid getting the gritty sand in your toes, wear close toed shoes.

      This isn't a repeating meetup, but we'll probably be doing this again. Sorry to hear about your car.

    How much is it for those who have equipment and know what they're doing?

      I think that's kinda strange too... I've been to many archery ranges and they always welcome people with their own equipment. I guess this place is different.

      Quite possibly. The explanation I was given was they can vouch for the safety of their own equipment, but not someone else's. You'd think a waver or something would relieve them of that responsibility, but I'm just happy I found somewhere local that caters to beginners.

      So unfortunately, the youngest you can be to shoot is 8 years old. Children younger than that are allowed to come and watch. Sorry :-/

    Not as cheap as the last archery event, but I'm sure less of a drive! LOL. And $20 is about normal for an archery private event. Hopefully this set up will be decent outdoors. I've never met the guy who runs it. I only got the name from the Newberry people for you. Remember to wear closed toed shoes!

      I've never been there myself, but I'm expecting plenty of equipment. He mentioned to me on the phone that he's expecting a large group of around 60 earlier that morning and he's well stocked for it.

    • christine

      If he can host 60 ppl and have equipment then it should be ok then. See you in February!
