Low key, but fun-filled!
How’s that for our description of the upcoming September 9-10, 2017, “Strictly Sticks Traditional Archers” 2-Day shoot?!!
Yes, The Crew has a pretty full set-up planned, and it looks like there will be all-kinds of Archery shooting possibilities, for EVERY type of Traditional Archer, young or seasoned, experienced or new-shooter!
A hillside’s worth of 3D targets for our regular marked course; our unmarked Hunter course (where only the two people setting up the course know how many targets there’ll be!); a “Hoot ‘N Holler” course; and introducing a “block target” course SPECIFICALLY FOR BLUNT-TIPPED ARROWS (no field points or broadheads…bring some blunts!!!!).
Plus, a long-distance “50/50” target to test you. The “Fred Bear Challenge” held Saturday evening inside the club, with competitions for ages 16 and younger, then for ages 17 and older. The “Eagle Eye Competition”, with ongoing qualifying on Saturday and Sunday and the shoot-off at 1 PM Sunday.
And the kitchen will be active, too, with Breakfast and Lunch both Saturday and Sunday, and the Traditional Spaghetti Dinner around 5 PM Saturday (before the “Fred Bear Challenge”)…..all reasonably priced and satisfying.
Plus, there’s a limited amount of primitive camping space for folks who wish to arrive Friday and camp until Sunday, in the parking area edges, and under a few building structures if needed. There’s a shower room, and restrooms that will be open. And enough dead/scrap wood around the hillside for those welcomed campfires.
“Strictly Sticks Traditional Archers” knows we aren’t Denton Hill, or Baltimore, or even a few other more regional events. But, we’re not really trying to be. We’re “Strictly Sticks”, a unique little happening tucked away in Alverton, Pennsylvania. Laid-back, low-key, fun-filled. And all depending on if YOU decide to visit us!
This year, we’ll be trying a few “Announcement Schedule Boards” for folks to see at-a-glance the whats and whens things will be happening, to “tweak-up” the original flyer that’s been posted online and found at various local Archery venues. And, we’ll trying out a few other events, if all things (including the weather) are co-operative. You may even find yourself shooting from clubhouse property you’ve not been on before!
So, what’s it cost, you ask? How’s this sound: Ages 17-older, $10 per day or $15 all weekend; Ages 12-16, $5 entire weekend; Ages 11-under, FREE all weekend!
As noted above and on the flyer, “Sticks” has an inside air-conditioned building, restrooms and a shower room, and enough chairs both inside and outside to just sit-down and “take it all in”. The beverage coolers will be stocked with water or soda and will be available throughout the day.
Does this sound like YOUR kind of Archery 2-day weekend? If so, then we humbly invite you to stop over with your bow, arrows, family and friends, and make it what YOU want the weekend to be!! Once you are here, it’s all up to you!!
The Crew will be awaiting, and welcoming!!
