The FITA has been cancelled due to Hurricane Irma.
This is a long shot but I am racking my brain to figure out how I lost an arrow.
At the recent Sunshine Games held at Gold Coast I had one end with a miss but I assumed it was an unshot arrow. Now I wonder if I did actually shoot it and missed. Either that or I lost it on the field somehow. I was on target #6. Anyways, if it was turned in here are the specs;
Easton X-10, 650, 29" correct arrow length, green 1 3/4" spinwings, orange pin nock.
If by some wild chance you found it, let me know.
Just came back from the NFAA National Meeting. Really disappointed. Directors practically passed everything placed in front of them. In my opinion, one bad idea after another (except for mine of course). NFAA got rid of Competitive Bowhunter (one anchor point and no sight), Bowhunter Freestyle Limited, Longbow, all kids Compound Limited Freestyle classes, Pro Olympic (put in because the Pro Rep promised us the Olympic shooters who never came) and Pro Limited Freestyle. Dues were raised but that is the cost of doing business. Costs have gone up and we haven't raised NFAA dues in years. Here are the unofficial minutes from the meeting that I received from Tim.

The August 2017 Release is available now. Email Tim if you'd like to forgo getting a paper copy.
The 2018 Sunshine State Games will be at Gator (Field and 3-D) and Newberry (720 and 900) on 9-10 June.

Congratulations to Kevin McCloskey and Oliver Austin who were put into the Hall of Fame this weekend.
The date of the 2017 FITA Field being held at Newberry has been moved up a week to Nov 11-12 because the prior date conflicted with a Gator home football game and motel rooms would be expensive and very hard to find.

The way that I was previously placing pictures on the website was tedious and time consuming and as you have noticed I have not been posting them on the website for quite some time. However, I have been saving all of the pictures that people have sent me waiting for time to place them on the website.
I appreciate all of the pictures that I have been sent and know that the you appreciate seeing them.
I am trying something new, quick and convenient (yes, there is such a thing) for pictures. Every picture that I had waiting to be posted has now been posted and is viewable on the website. Please take a look and see what you think.

conveniently and timely onto the website: so please
send me your tired, your poor huddled pictures waiting

Any FAA member who wishes to forgo receiving a hard copy of the Release in the mail may do so by sending Tim an email requesting you be taken off the Release mailing list.
I have created a new page for Archery Instruction. We get a lot of queries about archery coaching. If you would like to be added, please let me know.
This needs to be passed around and acted upon - It is specifically against NFAA rules to draw above horizontal... it's also against NAA rules. The practice of drawing a bow up in the air is unsafe, and many archers do it due to heavy poundage or simply out of bad habit. Pushing the bow out with the bow arm... or better yet, pushing it slightly downward... can assist in drawing it back. One arrow loosed high in the air and killing or damaging property three blocks away can set our sport back for years... much less ruin the day of the individual with the bow and the individual harmed by it!
With new automatic SPAM blockers, many of our members aren't receiving messages I send out to FAA email list. If you used to get emails from Tim and you haven't seen one lately your email might have Tim blocked out by your SPAM Blocker will either need to list me (email@example.com) as an acceptable incoming address or will need to go to the FAA Website to get current information.
