Atlanta Archery Club Weekly Newsletter - February 3, 2023

The Experience Of Competition

As many of our archers are competing in the GA Indoor & JOAD championship next weekend it is important to focus on the personal experience rather than the outcome of the event. For some archers, it will be your first tournament experience; for others, this will be yet another notch on your quiver.

Regardless, it is important to remember that we only win or learn and to keep our focus on that aspect of the event. Just showing up is a win for an athlete at any level because it takes courage to step up and compete. Earning a few more points than last time, coming home with all your arrows, getting familiar with the format of the event, and connecting with other archers are just a few examples of winning. Let's keep our focus on winning and learning by focusing on the experience of competition.

The whole coaching team is extremely proud of all of our archers and your great courage to compete. See you on the Range.

With Gratitude,

Coach Yale : )

Trade Show Notes

From Jan 10-12, we attended the largest archery trade show in the country to learn more about how we can serve you. We got tips on how to make our range run even more smoothly, and we got a peek at some great products like 3D and new kinds of targets, fun target papers, lighted nocks, all kinds of bows and arrows, and more.

Stay tuned for updates on our new location at 11261 Alpharetta Hwy! We are making great progress!
