Archery [ 70 ]

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. […]

Finding Flaws at Close Range

Finding Flaws at Close Range

I wanted to take a ride over to Stowe Archers but the thought of climbing a snow covered hill brought back memories of last year when I went sliding down the hill, backwards. Having […]

That’s a Technical Foul!

That’s a Technical Foul!

One day we’ll look back and laugh at the time I got shot in the eye… Monday nights at Stowe Archers is reserved for a weekly Youth Program. Anyone under the age of seventeen is welcome to come out to the club and use our indoor range, free of change (equipment is available also). The program has become rather popular and a handful of the more active club members also turn out (some to bring their kids, others to lend […]

Running for Vice President at Stowe Archers

Running for Vice President at Stowe Archers

A few weeks ago, I found myself in a bit of a bind. I spent the morning sitting in a tree and took what I thought was a solid shot at a doe. I was unable to find my arrow and spent over an hour turning up every leaf in the vicinity. Fearing that my arrow was sticking out of a deer somewhere on the property, I did the only thing I could think of, I reached out for help. […]
