Latest News from the Easton-Newberry Archery Center

By Eric Blalock

With indoor season in full swing, the Easton-Newberry Archery Center staff has been preparing for a busy season. Whether it is archers training for tournaments across the nation, or our own local events, the indoor range is bustling with archers.

The staff and coaches here would like to congratulate our facility members, and the Community Olympic Development Program (CODP) class participants, for an excellent start to the 2016 indoor season, most notably, their success at The Vegas Shoot. Three of our CODP class participants finished top 15 in their respective divisions, while two of our facility members finished 12th and 4th in theirs. We look forward to their continued success, as well as, our other CODP class participants as we move towards U.S. and JOAD National Indoor Championships.
