The Americas Masters Games were formed to compliment the Worlds Masters Games and are to be held every four years in the Americas, and are for competitors aged 30 and older (although for archery it is for those aged 50 and older). The Games cover a wide range of sports and this year were comprised of competitors from 52 countries and in archery I believe there were competitors from 22 countries.
No Shooting Broadheads or Crossbows on Butts
A reminder that broadhead arrows and/or crossbows are to be used in the sandpit only and are not to be used on the target or field butts as they wreck the butts.
A great big thank you to Carlee, Frank, Jim and Paul for their hard work in replacing the inside target wall, it was badly in need of replacing. Their time and effort will greatly improve the shooting enjoyment of all who shoot indoors.
A big thank you to all of you that came out and helped at our spring work party. It was great to have such a large turnout on such a nice day. We all had a good time and accomplished a lot. Click for more pictures
