Building an Archery Series: Estimating Costs

Building an Archery Series: Estimating Costs

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been pouring a lot of time and effort into the idea of starting up a Paper Animal Series at my local archery club. I tried to model it after the old Keystone Federation shoots and the more time I spent working on the project, the more excited I became. There is one aspect of the event that I’ve been avoiding – the finances. It hasn’t been nearly as fun but I’ve spent the […]

Building an Archery Series: Modified Animal Round (Revision 1)

Building an Archery Series: Modified Animal Round (Revision 1)

Ever since posting about the Modified Animal Round that I’ve been working on, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to some of the issues I’m facing. Most notably, how many shooting positions am I willing to pound into the ground before a given shoot? I approached my father with my dilemma. Like my Grandfather, my Father was also very involved in Wapiti Archers at one point in time. He no longer shoots but he is a wealth of information […]

Building an Archery Series: Modified Animal Round

At this very moment I am sitting out on my deck wearing a flannel shirt. I have hot cup of coffee next to me, a cigar burning in the ashtray, and I can see my breath in the cool morning air. Fall is quickly approaching and when it arrives, change will sweep across the archery community here in Southeast Pennsylvania. September marks the last month that Stowe Archers will host an Outdoor 3D Shoot before Spring. Many of the area […]

Quality Time In The Woods With My Daughter

Quality Time In The Woods With My Daughter

This weekend Stowe Archers was holding our monthly Outdoor 3D Shoot. Things have been kind of crazy at home with the new baby and I wasn’t able to make it out and lend a hand with setup. When I came across some downtime yesterday I decided to run over to the club and range the targets (I like to have a reference of targets and distances for each month). I looked over at my daughter and asked “Hey, I have […]

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 […]
