NFAA National Meeting. A lot of items passed (not all of them good). Directors created a record number of classes/divisions. The Senior age got moved to 50 and up, there is a new Senior division called Silver Seniors for 60 and up, Master Senior got moved to 70 and up. Silver and Master Senior get all styles so you no longer have to shoot Freestyle, Limited Freestyle and Barebow to shoot Silver and Master Senior - you can shoot Bowhunter Freestyle, Traditional, Longbow etc.. Limited Freestyle Pro is back (for the 6 people in the country that shoot it). Bowhunter Freestyle was added for Cub, Youth and Young Adult (we already had Youth and Young Adult here in Florida but now you get it at Sectional and National Shoots). Pro's get the X ring as a point for Field and Hunter. The regular score will be listed along with the X count and then combined for the total. Traditional gets a 12 inch stabilizer (voted against it and was surprised it passed). Oliver.

Congratulations Ryan Oliver on his National Championship Title earned at JOAD Nationals in Sacramento, CA for the Bowman Recurve Division in July.
I'm back home from Yankton...
Hi Light of the multiple championship week was Jesse Broadwater's winning everything, including the car. His shooting was fantastic with a world record at 30 meters at FITA and his scores at the NFAA Field were 560 Field, 559 Hunter, and 587 Animal.
The flooding from the water release at the dam wiped out about 60% of our field ranges for the time being, but we managed to make three ranges shootable near headquarters and the Dakota Range in the Lewis and Clark park was used for the FITA Field. The City Range at Paddlewheel Point had 20 of 28 targets under water, so we manufactured a 28 target range shooting North and South off of the grass road just North of the Tree Line... worked out quite well. We had 12 South Dakota inmates working with us who did a marvelous job. Those who know the four headquarters ranges will understand when I tell you that the old riverbed was full of water just about to the old banks with large fish available and happy with the new territory... needless to say, the South part of Badlands, Louis & Clark, Missouri, and Rushmore ranges were totally lost to the water, and another ten as well from the North portion... We used the North portions to manufac! ture a new Badlands and a new Rushmore range with the addition of three targets West of Archery Lane and three targets just south of the KOA campground and three targets East of the road tot he East of our ranges... It was a real pleasure seeing deer and fawns every day on the ranges...
Our Headquarters now has a fully operational KOA campground on our property and one of the finest permanent FITA fields in the country with a covered walkway all the way down the shooting line. Easton is donating money to help with the expansion of our indoor range to an indoor 70 Meter facility...
Frank Mosser from Kentucky was a great help working in Yankton before the tournaments!

more comfortable and the rates are better.

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.
That said. We are now ready to post
pictures quickly, conveniently and timely onto the
website: so please send me your tired, your poor
huddled pictures waiting to be viewed by all.
Take a look at www.floridaarchery.org/pictures.htm
Here are the final layouts of the NFAA ranges in Yankton, this also includes the practice area and parking. Here is the latest layout of the ranges. (file is 4 MB).
We also have the individual layouts of each of the ranges, each layout is around 1.5MB. Crazy Horse, Lewis and Clark, Badlands, Rushmore, and Missouri.
Splitting the Indoor did so well for the archers and for FAA that we are going to split another shoot this year as well. Just in case you hadn't noticed travel is expensive. Ft Lauderdale Archers and NADA in Newberry are going to split the NAA Indoor and the NFAA Indoor like we did this year. Ft Lauderdale will be in February and Newberry will be in March. Also Ft Lauderdale Archers and Gator Bowman are going to split the Marked 3-D. That will be held on the same weekend with the same yardages and targets.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) as an acceptable incoming address or will need to go to the FAA Website to get current information. Tim.
