The club is finalizing preparations for the 1st Leg of our Triple Crown Tournament and we want all of you to be aware of key upcoming dates. First we are holding Introduction to 3D Tournament classes; these are coached free classes available to all. Kids are absolutely welcome! The first class is Saturday March 20th, the second is Sunday March 21st. Registration on the club website is required. More classes will be scheduled based on demand. Registration for the April 24th, 1st Leg event will open on March 12th. Event participation will be capped at 100 archers. Check out the event calendar on our website to register for these events.
The club is looking for folks who would like to help Richard Garritson, and James and Clint Velasquez with the leadership of a field archery league. Our club has historically had a competitive field archery league called the Spring League, which has slowly declined in participation. Given our rapidly growing membership, the club wants to rebuild the Spring League with the primary goal of building a new group of field archers. Using the same approach as the Triple Crown, the Club will offer informative lessons on competitive field archery, make the league more ‘fun’, and provide a schedule that accommodates many, especially families and kids. So, polling our members’ interests and leading some teaching events are needed for those unfamiliar with field archery competition. Given our investment we want to use the website for league registration, score keeping and collecting any fees needed to support the league, etc... So, step one is to create a Spring League page under tournaments on the website then design/implement event registration and score keeping.
