Folks, the 9th and the "FINAL" Pre-Spring Arrow Fling, hosted by the "American Traditional Archer", will be at Tannehill Historical State Park in McCalla, AL, February 23rd, 24th & 25th, 2018. I'd like to thank ALL that have helped and supported me over the last 8 years.

This event has also helped me to raise and donate over $42,000.00 to the local Boy Scout Camp that sits adjacent to the Park. Of course without the generous donations from many outstanding bowyers, archery companies, Vendors, and many others, all I'll get to later, it would've been nearly impossible to raise that much money.

I'll keep posting more and more information concerning this event along the way.

Thanks

Folks, being that this will be my last Pre-Spring Arrow Fling, and as most of you know I use this event to help raise money for the Boy Scout Camp that sits adjacent to the Park, I'm looking for any of you that would like to donate something to help me make this the largest fund raiser yet.

So far, over the years, I've donated over $42,000.00 to this camp.

Folks, here's the Tannehill General Store. If you're camping, primitive or RV, this is where you'll pay to camp.

Terry Harris

Don't forget the Sweet Shop, great ice cream and home made milk shakes.

Let me also add, I should have put in here with the photo of the main gate. When you camp at Tannehill, you don't pay a gate entrance fee.

If you're not camping or staying in a motel or even locally and you're coming back and forth, you need to pay one time to enter the Park. After that, the Park has given me Park Passes to give you all so you don't have to pay again.

The bridge you cross that connects the maim Park to Farley Field. Farley Field is where all the activities take place.

I plan on making this shoot. Hopefully, I'll be well enough to shoot but if not, I'll just come hang out and visit.

Kevin, you can come hang out all you want.

BTW, if you look to the left while crossing the bridge into Farley Field, you'll see the Grist Mill.

As you enter Farley Field, there's a couple of pavilions and a bathroom on the right.

Looking ahead into Farley Field, you can see one of the three bathhouses in Tannehill State Park, two are up in the main areas of the Park. There are also plenty of hook-ups for camping as well as unlimited primitive camping around Farley Field.

You can also see the pavilion where the registration takes place.

Hope to make it this year. It is a very good event and really hate to see it go away. Pappy

From: THarris

Pappy, rumor has it that the Buck Hollow Buckhunters Club, in Dickson, TN, will take the dates for the Pre-Spring Arrow Fling, which will be a three day event starting in 2019. The dates in 2019 should be February 22, 23 & 24, 2019.

Not sure if it will still be the same name, but I think they'll work as hard as possible to make it a great event.

Terry Harris

I always look forward to coming to this event from Ohio to escape the winter for a few days. I will miss this event, and I plan to be there in February.

Down by the registration pavilion. That's the bathhouse. The road that goes around the pavilion is Vendors Row, makes sort of a horse shoe.
