Stowe Archers Monday Night Youth Program

Stowe Archers Monday Night Youth Program

Having been a member of Stowe Archers for almost a year now, I’m well aware of their popular Youth Program. On Monday nights, throughout the school year, Stowe Archers opens up the clubhouse and invites kids ages 17 and younger in to shoot. There is no cost for attending, although donations are appreciated, and equipment is available for anyone that does not have their own. Instruction is available for first-time archers (or anyone that needs it, all you have to [...]

2014 Cilsanws Challenge

2014 Cilsanws Challenge

A couple of days ago I was scrolling through my Facebook Timeline, trying to kill some time, when I came across a couple of photos from Jesse Broadwater. The photos showed archers shooting a rather extreme course with severe uphill and downhill shots. A day after Jesse Boradwater posted his photos, I stumbled onto a link on Archery Talk pointing to the very recently released videos from the event. I connected Vimeo to my Roku Player and spent the afternoon [...]

I think it may be time to upgrade my arrows

I think it may be time to upgrade my arrows

I like to think of myself as an off the shelf kind of guy. I don’t own much specialized equipment and pride myself at being able to perform fairly well with what some might consider middle of the road equipment. I don’t have a ton of disposable income so anything I buy has to be both affordable and quality (which is harder and harder to find these days). For an all-around archery setup, I went with an Elite Pulse, Gold [...]

Wapiti Archers of Pennsylvania

Wapiti Archers of Pennsylvania

The weekend before last I found myself with free time. A four year old daughter and wife in nursing school doesn’t lend itself to many open weekends, so when Sunday rolled around and I had absolutely nothing to do, I jumped at the opportunity to take my bow out and do some shooting. I’ve been talking about making a trip out to Wapiti Archers for the past several months but just haven’t been able to find the time. Coincidentally, this [...]

Sneaking Away for a Field Round

Sneaking Away for a Field Round

These last few weeks, or perhaps I should say months – everything has been running together, have been rough. If I’m not working long hours, I’m taking care of my daughter (which is a pleasure most of the time, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes she can be a little monster), or working around the new house. I haven’t shot a USPSA Match in nearly two months (which really bums me out) but I have been able to get out [...]

Stowe Archers Outdoor 3D Shoot: June 2014

Stowe Archers Outdoor 3D Shoot: June 2014

This month has been a bit of a mess. With an upcoming move fast approaching, I’ve had to shuffle my schedule around quite a bit. I missed the Lower Providence USPSA Match and would have missed the Southern Chester USPSA Match yesterday had it not been cancelled. Today would normally be the day that I attend the Ontelaunee USPSA Match. Due to a schedule conflict at the club, the match was pushed to next weekend. This rare free weekend, and [...]

New Holland 3D Archery Program

New Holland 3D Archery Program

Earlier today I got word from Annette Evans, IDPA Match Director at New Holland Rifle and Pistol Club, that New Holland has released their 3D Archery Program Schedule for the 2014 Season. New Holland will be hosting shoots which consist of 28 Targets at a cost of $10 per archer. One very unique aspect of the program is that it is Handicap Accessible (which is unheard of at most clubs due to wooded courses). While I’ve never been on the [...]

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 5

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 5

Week 5 of the Stowe Archers Field League has come to a close. Over these last few weeks, I’ve learned something. I find that I enjoy Field Archery just as much, if not a little more, than I do 3D Archery. I think it has a lot to do with the number of arrows shot. Instead of one arrow per target, thirty total for a typical 3D Shoot, I’m shooting four per target, 56 for a 14 Target Round. That [...]

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 3  

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 3

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been spending my Friday Afternoons at Stowe Archers. Troy an I have been getting together to particulate in the weekly Field League. This past Friday, however, heavy rain put a damper on our plans. Instead, I headed out to Stowe on Sunday to shoot before the monthly meeting. Not having a partner to talk to, I decided to bring a couple of video cameras along to help fill the time. I set one camera [...]
