Learning to take proper aim

Working on the proper form to get more consistant results on the target

Curt's one on one instructing developes abilities

Here Curt takes time to make sure that the proper hand placement is being used. This will help to achieve more consistant scoring results.

The March p.m. class. They're all smiles too

Age or gender make no difference in this fun and challenging sport. New equipment innovations in recent years have made it possible for nearly anyone to pull, hold, and shoot today's bows and arrows.

Nice to see more ladies taking up archery

Now more than ever archery is for anyone who wants to try it. The ladies in all these photos enjoyed themselves and were putting a shooting clinic on for us guys and our egos.

Locked on for success with good shooting form

Archery allows us to set, work toward, and achieve our own goals in a fun and challenging environment. And yes, even you can do it. Let one of our instructors work with you and see for yourself how fun this sport is, and how good you can become

Instructor Bill Robb helps shooters get better

Archers get lots of shooting time and instruction in our classes.  It's nice to note that the only complaint we keep getting class after class is that the shooters want more classes/time to shoot even more. That makes us feel like we're doing something right

Large to small... These bows fit nearly everyone

John Georgen helps Ethan remember to keep his head from leaning back

A happy March a.m. class. We had a blast!

Archery is also a great family activity!!! Grandparents, moms, dads, and kids are all encouraged to join in on the fun of this sport.  

Proper positioning helps get good results

Here's a good example of proper shooting form. (sometimes you guys make me so proud)

Sometimes a little extra help gets results

Our instructors work very hard at giving whatever help they can in trying to minimize shooting mistakes

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about! 5 bullseyes!!!

With a bit of help from us, and a lot of practice from you, the end results can turn out to be quite impressive. AWESOME shooting Kim!!!  I hope you didn't think I was kidding about these ladies putting on a shooting clinic
