What we're about

ArcheryFrom Wikipedia

Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow) with the use of a bow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bow_(weapon)), from Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, its main use is that of a recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically known as an "archer" or "bowman", and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a "toxophilite"

Vern's Birthday, meet and greet fundraiser

Shortstop Bar & Grill

Vern is board member at the Agawam Bowmen. It is his birthday. The bar is giving the archery club 15 percent of all food orders if you have the flyer or a picture of the flyer at this event. Sorry there will be no archery at this event. But money received will go back into the club that allows us to shoot monthly for free.

3-D Archery, Agawam Bowmen Club, Southwick MAss

Agawam Bowmen Club Inc

This is on a Sunday morning and is a 3-D animal archery shoot. It is open to the public and registration sign up is 7:30 am till 11:45 am. It cost $12 for adults. Kids under age 10 are free. Youths are $8. We have some food for sale, sometimes breakfast and always lunch. You will need your own equipment, maybe bug spray, maybe a small water, and good walking shoes. If you need equipment, the club does have a couple loaner bows, but they maybe in use. It takes about 2-3 hours to shoot all 30 targets, you only shoot one arrow at each, then walk to the next target. For most this is a fun event although some take it more seriously, we do have awards in many different classes. We will break into groups of 2-6 and sort of like golf, we will laugh and cheer each other successes. Folks if you can't make it please change your RSVP a few hours before the event. Last minute changes will be marked as no shows. Feel free to cross post this to other meet up groups or message boards. More info about the club can be found at www.agawambowmen.org, We are always looking for more members. Tom

Thinking about buying a new recurve bow?
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

http://www.fsdiscountarchery.com/pserazorbackbow.aspx If this works I just posted a link to FS Discount Archery and a 62" three piece recurve bow that I like. Most adult females and youths can pull around 25 pounds. Unless you are very tall and that will change your draw length. With a recurve bow the more you pull it the more the weight is added at about 3 pounds an inch. It is the same if you are shorter, then it would be minus 3 pounds an inch or so. This is also a nice beginner bow. http://www.fsdiscountarchery.com/greatreearcherymoheganyouthandbeginnertake-downrecurvebows-freeshipping.aspx Folks: Always check your eye dominance before buying a bow.
