In the year 2102, the archery range is an unmarked place in Appalachia's woodland area. It is located on the boundary of the Forest and the Savage Divide, midway between White Powder Winter Sports and the Top of the World. The site consists of a half-moon-shaped clearing surrounded by thick forest growth.
This is what makes the Appalachian Archery Range so special. No other range in the world is home to an entire forest! The ARchery range is a protected space, and we hope that it will always be available for people to come and use its facilities free from charge.
The range has three marked target areas: a small field for younger children, a larger one for older kids, and a huge open area for adults. There are also two lanes for bow hunting, one on each side of the forest. On these lanes, you can shoot at wooden targets or live animals (such as deer).
The range has been used for years by local archers who want to practice their shooting skills. They come here to compete in regional tournaments, to get ready for the International Bowhunting Festival every other year, or simply because it's fun!
Also worth mentioning is the fact that the range is always open, even when there are no events scheduled.
Archery in the Schools National Program. The mission of Archery in the Schools (AIS) is to bring archery programs and activities into schools across the United States, with a particular focus on reaching out-of-school-time populations such as youth at risk, students in under-resourced schools, and children with disabilities.
AIS was founded in 1972 by a group of archers who believed that everyone should have access to outdoor recreation opportunities, especially youth from marginalized communities who were not being given equal access to traditional sports. AIS has grown over the years to become one of the largest nonprofit organizations in the country with chapters in all 50 states and more than 150 local affiliates.
In addition to bringing archery programs into schools, AIS also provides training and resources for teachers and parents/caregivers. There are several ways that AIS can help improve your school's program including providing free equipment, conducting trainings, and organizing fundraising events.
AIS operates under the belief that "every child can be an archer" by offering free instructional materials, holding workshops, and creating videos to help teachers and administrators create successful archery programs in their schools.
Archery Manufacturers' Association. This is the name of the organization that governs most aspects of archery including design of all equipment used in competition and on the street.
They were originally called The National Archery Association, but they changed their name in 1990 to better represent the diversity of sports that use an arrow as a projectile.
The only thing that doesn't belong to the AMO is safety gear such as helmets or elbow pads. These items are provided by individual manufacturers who sell them through Archery Trade Shows. There are two major trade shows each year where all sides of the industry come together: Spring Fair and Summer World's.
Each year new products are introduced at these shows and sometimes old favorites are revived too. Either way, it's a great opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the latest products available. In addition, there are many other events throughout the year where you can see demonstrations and meet people from around the world.
Some famous people have been involved with archery either personally or through their companies.
Archery is an optional activity for both men and women in the Commonwealth Games, which debuted in 1982 in Brisbane with 11 countries sending participants. The archery program will be held at the Archery Park in Glasgow from 7 August-10 August 2014.
Of the total number of medals available in the games, the majority will be awarded to athletes who place high in the individual events they enter. However, if an athlete places high enough in the team event to qualify for the finals, then they will also receive a share of their country's medal quota for that event.
The best example of this is the case of England, who sent only female archers to the Calgary games in 1988 but won three gold medals - one each in the women's team free game, the women's team recurve, and the woman's individual recurve.
England also won the silver medal in the women's team open game. So even though they didn't place high enough to qualify for the final match, they still received a share of their country's medal quota for that event.
Another example is the case of New Zealand.
