Introduction to Archery
In 5000 B.C., Egyptians used the bow in their war against the Persians. Since then, we've heard of Robin Hood, the Green Arrow; Bean Pearson,etc...
From medieval and legendary times to the modern heroes, archery has fascinated people from all nations for centuries and centuries. Today, we'll get a first hand study and look into classic archery.
Attendees will be broken up into small groups to work on an individual basis with master instructors. Classes will earn the tools involved, how to handle the bow and arrow, the best way to maximize points, handling targets of varying distances, and much more!
This is held indoors, so the event is done rain or shine.
Suggested Attire: Casual
Directions: 7700 Bull Run Drive
From Washington and east/southeast: exit I-66 at US Route 29. Turn right at the light to head south. From west and southwest: exit I-66 at US Route 29. Partway down the long exit ramp, turn left to head south on US Route 29. From north: Take VA 28 S to I-66 W and exit immediately onto US 29. Turn right at the light to head south.
Go about one and one-half miles. Turn left onto Bull Run Post Office Road. Go about half a mile. At the sharp turn, bear off right. After crossing over I-66, immediately turn left. This will lead you to the Shooting Center. The range is downstairs in the building.
NOTE: If you have a GPS and get the address for the Park from their web site, it will mislead you because the Shooting Center has the same address. It will tell you to go straight ahead when you cross over I-66. THIS IS INCORRECT FOR THE SHOOTING CENTER. It is necessary to turn left as soon as you are off the bridge over I-66.
