Sent September 8th 2014

First, in case you have not heard, Brady Ellison just won the Grand Prix Final held in Switzerland, barely more than a week after winning the World Field Championships.  Two distinctly different styles of archery, and somehow I think if there were a World Clout Championship event tomorrow his skills might prevail there, as well.  For more information, check the USA Archery site, and for links to videos, stories, and photos, the World Archery Site... We hope to have in the next newsletter, a writeup on the ma...

Amazon has a program I have registered the TSAA for, one that gets the TSAA FREE MONEY. (yikes!)  - When you sign up for SMILE at Amazon, a small portion of each purchase you make gets donated to a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization of your choice.

Saturday July 19th. 2014 in Bryan, Texas, hosted by the Brazos 4H JOAD Archery club* *Clout is shooting old-style, in a high, over-the-castle-wall, method.  The archer aims at a target ON the ground that is as much as 180 meters away.  It is surprising just how accurate an archer can get with just a little practice!  For those that haven't shot a clout event before, Rick Stonebraker will provide some tips and how-to information on the morning of the event.&...

The Target Championship and the JOAD Target Championship for the Texas State Archery Association were held simultaneously as two lines in Columbus, Texas June 7 & 8, 2014. It was a very dynamic mix of archery demands.  Coaches Tom Barker and John Magera (in alphabetical order) provided this summary of the event: It's not bragging, if you can really do it.    Babe Ruth said that. (yep, that's Babe Ruth).  I bet you thought a Texan said that and yes, we just did, because....... Those of us ...

US TEAM SELECTED FOR WORLD FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS! For the full story, check the USA Archery website. Congratulations are in order for all of the archers for their performance at the National Field Championship this last weekend. It was a challenging course with lots of sun, humidity, and not a few mosquitoes! We were extremely fortunate as far as weather goes – the venue had more than FIVE inches of rain fall in just hours, the day after competition finished! If it had hit a day earlier, just think of how much fun they...
