As we transition into the indoor season, things have finally started to slow down slightly at the Easton Newberry Archery Center. Outdoor tournaments are coming to an end, with only the Florida Archers Association’s State FITA Field and Florida 4-H’s State 3D Match remaining on the schedule.
The staff and coaches here would like to congratulate our members and the CODP (Community Olympic Development Program) class participants for an excellent 2015 outdoor season. The CODP class participants finished the season with an outstanding 57 podium finishes, 34 of which were first place, at State tournaments. Their national success in 2015 was unparalleled to any seen here at the Easton Newberry Archery Center, with 38 top 10 placements, bringing home 9 gold medals and 18 overall podium finishes.
We want to wish the best to eight of our members as they travel to Chula Vista, California for the Junior Dream Team selection camp. Also, a big shout out to our members, Meghan Collins, Ryan Oliver and Adam Heidt, for making the Cadet USAT Team.
There are some exciting events in the coming months. On January 16th the Easton Newberry Archery Center will be hosting a one-day Judges Seminar led by International Judge, Mike Cullumber. We are kicking off our indoor season with the 2nd Annual Gator Classic on February 5th and 6th. Only a couple weeks later Easton Newberry Archery Center will be hosting, for the first time in Florida, the U.S. National Indoor Championships and JOAD National Indoor Championships on February 19th through the 21st.
