New/old fun--archery

I remember loving archery at camp—those huge oilcloth targets over a straw backing. The strain of pulling the bow. The weird language—noccing, fletchings, etc.

Now, since THE HUNGER GAMES, it’s back—and not just for backwoods hunting.

Here in little old Chandler AZ, there is a summer school with archery in it. The state Fish & Games Dept has a program for archery in the schools.

It may be offered before and after school, too.

Archery is fun and teaches control and hand-eye coordination. It’s also competitive.

See if your kid is interested. Or maybe you are.
