Sign up soon for free archery leagues


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — HOLDERNESS — Interested in keeping your archery skills in tune once archery season comes to an end? This winter, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will once again offer free archery leagues for both beginners and experienced archers who want to learn new skills or improve their current skills.

Both leagues will be held at Fish and Game’s Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, 387 Perch Pond Road in Holderness. Registration is now open.

Two separate archery leagues will meet one night a week, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for four consecutive weeks:

A competitive evening adult archery league will meet on Tuesdays (starting Jan. 8).

There will be a beginner-level instructional league designed for youth and adults who want to learn the basics of archery in a fun noncompetitive atmosphere. The beginner league will meet on Wednesdays (starting Jan. 9).

To register, call Tom Flynn or Eric Geib at 536-3954. Registration is first-come, first-served, so call soon. Participation will be limited to 12 people in each league. You must be able to commit to attending all four weeks in order to register.

Participants in the adult league must bring their own equipment in good working condition. Only field tips or target points will be permitted, no broadheads. All equipment will be provided for the participants in the beginner league.

Activities at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center are funded by federal Wildlife Restoration Funds, supported by the purchase of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment.
