Local Archery Note
- To Owen and any other Artemisia Archer that might be interested,
Two NAA Instructors courses are being offered at Salt Lake
Archery. The Level 1 course is offered on November 18th. It's a $30
and included is all materials plus lunch and dinner (This is an all
A Level 2 course is being offered on Friday the 16th through
Sunday the 18th. This is an $85 course with the materials and meals
included. (Course runs 4 - 10pm Friday, all day Saturday and 9 am -
4pm on Sunday).
I don't know who is teaching the Level 1 course but I know Randi
Smith, one of the national JOAD coaches is teaching the Level 2
course. Anyone interested in additional information please feel free
to contact me.
On to items of shooting interest. The Utah Open is on December
1st and 2nd. This is a full FITA shoot (60 arrows) on a standard 40
cm 18 m FITA shoot but they do have a traditional division. Entry
fee for the traditional event is $20. Should be a fun event in the
traditional shooters as there should be several that will take the
line. (For any of you interested the Championship division is $100
and the Open division is $50).
We are in active conversations at the DATUS club to put up a web
page that will include ALL shooting events, ranges and leagues state
wide (This will include all SCA archery shoots and events). Talk has
been bantered about including nearby shoots outside the state. While
these web pages will list numerous mundane events I can think of 4
major tournaments over the next few months with traditional divisions
of interest to SCA archers (Most are 18 m FITA shoots but one is an
indoor American Round).
