Our first shoot was yesterday, and it went great!
The archery range has never looked better.
We have more help this year at the range, and because of this we have a new roof on the pavilion, each of the target butts, and the grounds are manicured and the 3D trails are all neat and cut.
Everybody has been working hard.
We had almost 40 shooters yesterday, which includes a girl-scout group that came out at 2pm for their first shooting lesson.
They had a ball.
One of them spied the 3D foam hog target at the 20-yard target and pestered me until I caved in and brought it over in front of the targets.
They had that hog looking like a pin cushion after most every round.
It's very gratifying introducing kids to archery and I'm considering maybe chairing a youth archery program at Izaak Walton, but only if we have enough help otherwise at the range.
Thanks to the Maryland Bowhunter's Society Central Chapter for loaning us bows and arrows so we can run these youth events!
