Targeteers Learn about Field Archery
September. 24, 2005
Headquarters, Chandler, AZ
Dave Twigg, of the
Usery Mountain Archers (UMA), spoke to the Mesa Targeteer's Intermediate and
Advance classes this Saturday morning.
The information focused on
the NFAA style of field and hunter round know distances, 4 arrows, “walk up”
and “fan pattern” shooting. Dave also mentioned “FITA Field” marked
and unmarked distance target shooting opportunities.
Field archery including bare bow is a great way to try out for a US World
To encourage youths to give
field archery a try, the UMA invited the JOADs to shoot their first “Fun
Shoot” field round for free and “Fun Shoots” thereafter for ˝ price.
The normal tournament fee
is $10 per round.
(The Maricopa County park
entry fee of $5 per archer is a separate fee that is not discounted.)
