Keep Your 3D Archery Shoot Safe with Inexpensive Trail Markers

Keep Your 3D Archery Shoot Safe with Inexpensive Trail Markers

On Sunday, Stowe Archers held our monthly membership meeting. Several members arrived early and were talking amongst themselves when I arrived. The discussion centered around the quality of an area 3D Shoot and the lack of trail markers on the course. As I was getting ready for the meeting I listened to a story one of the members was telling. He and a friend were at a 3D Shoot that wasn’t marked very well. They wound up getting turned around […]

People don’t realize how much work goes into hosting a 3D Archery Shoot

People don’t realize how much work goes into hosting a 3D Archery Shoot

Generally speaking, most people arrive at an archery club for a 3D Shoot, pay their $10, and proceed to walk through the woods shooting at a variety of foam animals. What many people don’t realize is that there is an awful lot of work involved in putting on a successful event. As President of Stowe Archers, I know all too well how much work goes into a given event. I thought it might be interesting to break down what actually […]

Join an Archery Club and Help to Make it a Better Place

Join an Archery Club and Help to Make it a Better Place

One day, after school, I was at my Grandparents house playing on their Commodore 64. Out of the blue, my Grandfather got up off the couch, walked over to the closet, and pulled out a long and skinny bag. Inside the bag was an old wooden bow that belonged to one of my Aunts. He strung the bow and had me try pulling it back. “Don’t let go of the string, just see if you can pull it back and […]

Archery as a Life Sport

Archery as a Life Sport

Back in High School I remember sitting on the gym floor as the Physical Education Teachers stood in front of us explaining the concept of Life Sports. As the name implies, these are sports or physical actives that be done by people of all ages and walks of life. During that school year we were introduced to a couple of different Life Sports. We went out on the football field and played a round of modified golf (there were no […]

2015 Stowe Archers 450 League

2015 Stowe Archers 450 League

Several months ago I was sitting down in the Stowe Archers Clubhouse attending one of our monthly membership meetings. The club was in a lull, stuck between our busy Outdoor 3D Season and the fast approaching Indoor 3D Season, when the subject of Winter Leagues were brought up. The club was in a bind since there was no one to run the Indoor 450 Spot League. I offered my time with one big stipulation. I was happy to run the […]

Red Wing Hunter

Red Wing Hunter

On May 23, 1962 my grandparents walked into George’s Archery Shop in Philadelphia. At the time both of my grandparents were avid archers and my Grandmother was in the market for a bow. As the story goes, she searched through the inventory of Red Wing Hunters and selected one in particular to bring home. I wish there was more of the story to share but details are sparse. My grandmother thinks that George’s Archery Shop was located on Aramingo Ave. […]
