FINALLY, WE GO OUTSIDE!!!!!

JOAD Youth Archery will resume activities outside beginning this Saturday April 7, 2012.  For now there will be only one time slot on Saturdays for outdoor JOAD which will be from 9am - 12 noon. Don't forget to bring a lawn chair.   First time archers should contact Coach Lynn to schedule attending an introductory course.

The temperature in April is unpredictable so be sure to watch the forecast and bring warm clothing when cool Saturday mornings are predicted.  Tight fit layering insulation is best to wear to prevent the bowstring from interfering with your clothing.  Loose fitting and bulky jackets make it impossible to shoot without bowstring interference.

COMING SOON IS THE SPRING 900 ROUND TOURNAMENT MAY 12 & 13.

We go outside just in time for some good practice before the Spring 900 Round Tournament, which will be held Saturday May 12 and Sunday May 13.  Soon I will be e-mailing you a flyer with the entry form and information on the divisions, distances and cost of the tournament.  The following is some of the information:  You may shoot your official score either day.  The event will be held on Huntsville Archery Club’s archery field behind Custom Archery Center.  You will shoot at three different distances.  The distances will be determined by your age and whether you shoot recurve, traditional or a compound bow.  Awards will be given out Sunday at the completion of the tournament.

See you Saturday,

Coach Lynn

THURS: NOVEMBER 22 - 2007 

Due to the large number of archers participating, it has become necessary to hold 2 sessions for shooting indoors on Saturday mornings. The idea behind this is to keep the number of participants in each session as even as possible and reduce the number of archers per session to a comfortable number. Hopefully, this will not be an inconvenience to any of you.

INDOOR SESSION TIME SCHEDULE:

The first session will be from 9am to 11am. Archers whose last name begins with letters A through G will shoot during this session. The second session will be from 11:30am to 1:30pm for archers whose last name begins with letters H through Z.

All new archers will initially start at 11:30am for their first 3 lessons and thereafter will follow the designated schedule.

For those car pooling, with archers that would qualify for both sessions, please try to choose the class that has had the least number of participants. Please try to make it at your designated time, however if you find it impossible to make your designated time you may participate during the other session. See coach for exceptions.

WED: SEPTEMBER 5 - 2007 

One of our youth archery JOAD members, Lori Clements, was diagnosed with leukemia a few weeks ago. Most of the new archers may not know her; she and her sisters, Rebekah, Amie, and Elizabeth have not been to Saturday morning classes most of the summer but they have been participants in the program for quite some time. Lori is being treated at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis.

You can go to HERE for more information on Lori. I also encourage you to sign the Guestbook and write her a note of support and encouragement.

 I’ve had a banner made and would like for the kids to hold it up while we take a picture of it this Saturday (Sept. 8). I’ve taken a few but would like more. I will send the banner and pictures to St. Jude’s while she’s in the hospital. It would be great if I could have as many kids as possible in the picture. I will also have a card for everyone to sign. I plan on taking the picture around 10:30 Saturday morning. Even if you do not plan to participate in the archery class that morning maybe you can still stop by to get in the picture and sign the card.

Thanks in advance for your participation,

Coach Lynn
