Shadow: Pet Portraits

2013 State Outdoor Archery Tournament – Day One

The archers had quite a challenge battling the winds and the afternoon heat at Ben Avery Shooting Facility today. They did an amazing job! We are looking for another great day tomorrow. Hopefully, the wind will be more of a cooling breeze than an almost blow the printer off the table strength.

Great job to everyone who persevered and especially to the ones who enjoyed their first tournament today! I just love seeing the smiles on their faces between ends and the concentration when they are shooting.

Enjoy the video…

Desert Sky Archery

This was one of the last weeks we were practicing at Arizona Archery Club. The team has since moved to Ben Avery Shooting Range. The kids (and their parents) are learning a lot and becoming better archers. Thanks to Rick for everything he does to support this organization!
