Welcome back everyone!
Another summer has come and gone, and everyone is back into the swing of things. First and foremost, welcome all returning and new archers along with alumni. What a busy semester it has been so far, and we’re not even at midterm season yet! We had a record number of sign-ups during the Involvement Fair. Almost 300 students signed up to participate, and we had over 60 people RSVP for the first practice of the semester.
During practice we separate new archers from those who have practiced with the club before. With the new archers we go over safety protocol and whistle commands, basic equipment terminology, and the essentials of how to shoot. Soon they are on the line and shooting bails. Throughout practice we watch and give correction on form and praise for good technique. At the end of practice the officers put out balloons for the archers to practice and hone in their skills. Also our coach Jeep Hauser has returned to Sunday practices! It has been wonderful having him back and he has been happily sharing his knowledge and teaching new and returning archers.
We have also rescheduled our on-campus team practices in PED. New and old team members meet twice a week to improve their skills and prepare for competition. If you are interested in joining team practice please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Officers and members alike have been working towards a new, redesigned logo for the club/team. While we have not yet finalized the logo we are working hard at creating something that truly represents the group as dedicated, talented archers. We would love your help! If you have any design ideas, please snap a picture or send a scan to email@example.com within the next two weeks. Your submissions don’t have to be masterpieces, even doodles will do! Credit will be given to all contributing artists. So look forward to the reveal soon! Along with a revamped logo we have new officers (or old officers in new positions) so check out the “Meet Your Officers” page, and well…meet your officers!
A special focus this semester has been our social media platforms. We have created an Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook page to spread the accomplishments of the club and team, events, and general interest in archery. Please remember to follow and stay updated with practices, events and archery facts!

We hope everyone’s semester is going well and we look forward to seeing you at practice! And remember to always #ShootOn
