COPS ShootAugust 9th
The COPS event is a charity event to support C.O.P.S (Concerns of Police Surviviors), and is for all ages and archery skill levels. Registration will begin at 0900 Hours, and the cost will be $10.00 per archer.
Events will include a 3D Archery shoot, Archery Poker, the infamous Iron Buck Challenge, a Water Jug shoot, our fun-for-all-ages Zombie Course, and a raffle, for which Hoffman Archery and Most Wanted Outdoors will be providing two brand new Matthews bows.
You can find more information and photos from last year's event at MostWantedOutdoors.
At this time, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting classes at out club grounds on the following dates:August 24th, 12:45 p.m. (FULL) August 24th, 2:00 p.m. (FULL) September 7th, 12:45 p.m. (FULL) September 7th, 2:00 p.m. (FULL) At this time, we are planning more classes to accommodate those with interest in learning the sport. Please check back!
The cost will be $20 per person, and the class will last for one hour. We will provide both recurve and compound bows, but if you have your own equipment, we recommend that you bring it along with you; it's always better to learn on the bow you'll be shooting from now on!
Space in these classes is limited to eight people so that each archer can receive personal attention from our dedicated coaches, and due to high interest, classes will fill up quickly. Please contact Kristina Miller to reserve a space in class. If the classes are full, you may be placed on a wait list.
Please DO NOT attend classes unless you have signed up and received verification from us. Space is limited, and any archers who did not register will be turned away.
If you are interested instead in private coaching, please let us know. Include whether you are interested in recurve/traditional or compound, and we will put you in contact with the proper coach.
We appreciate your patience and support while we work to provide these classes, and hope to see you there!
