The more I talk with folks about our class, they seem very excited to attend but have scheduling conflicts, or want to know if they can come once a week, and some want to only learn archery. I'd like to take this opportunity to explain that while we want everyone to be able to come to our class & learn everything we are teaching we understand that the world does not revolve around us & that you have things to do. But this is an ongoing class, just like school, if you miss a day here & there no big deal but if you can't catch up or don't demonstrate an ability to perform the skills we are teaching, we won't be able to give you a completion certificate for the Course, which we would like to do for everyone who attends.
While we wish this was our only job, unfortunately Joseph has a full time job and classes are held after he gets home from work. Of course this is somewhat inconvenient for some as class is held at 6pm or dinner time for most. This is also our first time offering this course, so we are trying to work out all the kinks & accommodate the community as best we can and the easiest way to do that is to get your input. (Joseph will be happy to make this his full time job if we have enough regular students.)
This all in mind if you would like to attend class we are happy to schedule another group meeting time. But we need some feedback. I can't really stress that enough. What time & day would be most convenient? (PLEASE see the poll below) What are you more interested in, archery or just woodland skills? (PLEASE leave comments to this blog)
Our course is designed around the objective that both go hand in hand. If you plan a walk in the woods, your bow & your gear go with you. You never know what might happen out there & while you don't need to be a hunter to carry your bow with you it's always fun to stump shoot just to hone your skills.
If you are interested in nothing but archery Sunday's at 4pm (a course day) is when we encourage you to join us on the range. We don't expect you to stay for the rest of class but you can get tips on your form & learn some of the history of archery, since "the history of archery is the history of man" Sunday's are great for hanging out on the range. Bring your gear or rent ours, remember NO compounds or crossbows! While we are purists, recurves are welcome.
