Atlanta Archery Club Weekly Newsletter - January 6, 2023

We Are Strong & We Shoot Straight

Our Purpose: To facilitate personal growth, empowerment & fun through the practice of Archery

Our Mission: To be the top destination for learning the Science, Philosophy & Art of Archery.

To foster a club culture that encourages wholeness as human beings & as archers born from the freedom to be ourselves in the world.

New Year, New Form?

While in the pursuit of success, sometimes we need to face big challenges to make big leaps in improvement. For instance, you might review your whole technique with a caring and objective perspective to make necessary fundamental changes, and other times a small shift of a degree or two can close the gap to success.

Next time you're on the range, B 4 you make any changes to your form, go step by step through the progression of your shot flow. While doing so, ask yourself if it feels like a ballet dance or chopping broccoli.

Identify areas where you'd like to be smoother, and let's connect on how to improve your shot flow.

ALICE "She drank from a bottle called DRINK ME And she grew so tall, She ate from a plate called TASTE ME And down she shrank so small. And so she changed, while other folks Never tried nothin’ at all.” ― Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends

Be like Alice. Try things.

I wish for you, me, & all human beings a year of health, wealth, happiness, & living free― free to be!

With Gratitude,

Coach Yale : )

were held in Oulu, Finland in 1991? It was also the first international target archery event to include the use of a compound bow!

The Indoor Archery World Cup was rebranded in 2019 to become what we now know as the Indoor Archery World Series. It's been the highest level of indoor archery competition since 2010. Plus, as a bonus, competitors are given the wonderful opportunity to visit destination cities all over the world during the annually held events.

Did you see that USA Archery recently changed their logo?

Here are a few shots of the new look:

Don't worry about having to update any of your previous awards or pins though. USA Archery has encouraged everyone to have fun mixing the old logo with the new ones. Achievement award pins will be updated ongoing, so we'll most likely see them slowly implemented one at a time.
