COOK INLET ARCHERS
WORKING TOWARDS EDUCATION, DEVELOPMENT AND RESPECT FOR BOWHUNTERS
AND A FIRST-CLASS FACILITY FOR PROMOTING AND IMPROVING THESE IDEAS.
Hello CIA members.
After 25 years of hosting, Cook Inlet Archers have only had to cancel a few 3-D archery shoots. January 20th 2013 was one of those days. The ice was everywhere, then add high wind conditions and we had to make the call of “unsafe to shoot”. Hopefully everyone made it through the toughest part of the winter without too much damage.
Our next 3-D scheduled shoot is March 17th. Shamrock Shoot should be a nice day for getting out into this spring weather we’ve been having. Registration is at 9:00 and lunch is on us.
We’d like to offer advertising to those of you who own a business. We will post your business card or flyer in our newsletter and on our website for a reasonable fee. Contact Billi Perkins firstname.lastname@example.org to get started. If you are interested in buying 3-D targets to donate we will advertise your donation as well. Thank you Dan Branvold for the first contribution of $100. Dan’s business will be included in the newsletter for 8 months, once I figure out how to scan it into this newsletter. :)
Hope you all had a fun novelty activity in February. We had a biathlon course set up with 5 targets to hit. All done on snowshoes or skis. Vikki Gross won the skiing division, and Robert Palmer won for snowshoeing and shooting the best and fastest. Who knows what the crew will come up with this month. COME OUT AND SHOOT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF!
As mentioned above, Cook Inlet Archers have been around for 25 years. In celebration of this accomplishment we have a design we are putting on a t-Shirt and offering to sell to members on a pre-sale basis. Look for our samples at the registration table in April. We are proud of our continued success and would like you to show your pride too by buying and wearing the CIA 25th year design shirt.
Thank you to the following members for renewing or first time joining the IBO: Kim Watsjold, Robyn Elkins, Michael Herrington, Wayne Armstrong, Vikki Gross, Gary Perkins, Mike Quinn, Dale DeFrees, Dan and Barb Branvold, Russ Oyster, Glenn Durkie, Jeff Roehl, Bill Brickley. With your help, we are able to keep our insurance that allows us to hold shoots. THANK YOU!!!
Have you noticed some flyers around the area? We have! Some of our volunteers have posted recruitment posters locally in hope of bringing in new members. You too can bring in fellow archers. Thanks to Peg and Caitlin Quinn, and Dan Asman for their work!
Speaking of new members, if you have friends or neighbors with kids wanting to learn archery, please bring them out to our shoots. We have plenty of volunteers who are willing to take the kids for a round and let them experience first hand 3-D shooting. We even have equipment to loan for the day.
That’s all folks. Until next month, stay safe and enjoy yourself.
Billi Perkins, Secretary
