The Easton Salt Lake Archery Center has been as busy as ever! We’ve seen classes, corporate events, team visits and more the last few months.

We held a level I and II coach certification class the first week of August and people came in from all over Utah as well as Montana, Oklahoma, New York and even Turkey. They spent two days learning in the conference room, shooting in the indoor range as well as touring the library and the rest of the center. Everyone left happy and we got a few glowing reviews on Facebook from this course.

They took a break from their workday and came over to shoot the Olympic distance, compete in archery tag, shoot at glowing targets in the cosmic room and try their hand at skeet archery. We really enjoyed having them in the center and love getting the chance to show people just how much fun archery can be!

Also in August we had a JDT camp at the center. They worked hard indoors all week and spent one afternoon letting loose and playing archery tag and shooting skeet. TOP Archery Canada also spent a week with us. They spent time in the classroom with guest lecturers, range time with coaches and they also made time for archery tag while they were here. We love hosting these youth camps and watching these kids learn and achieve their goals.

Departments from Clearlink, Intermountain Healthcare, Rural Water Association of Utah and more have come in to learn a new skill and come together as teams to figure out how to best achieve a common goal during our team building round.   We also saw several birthday parties in the center.   Everyone who comes in for any of these activities is invited to come back and join us for our “FUN”damentals classes.

We’ve had several staff changes in the center the last couple of months. Trevor Thornton was promoted to Center Director. Trevor has been working at the center since the beginning and is passionate about the Easton Foundations and is striving to continue moving the center in a positive direction.   Alli Rutland was promoted from Administrative Assistant to Center Manager and Wendy Brimley was hired as our Events Coordinator. Wendy will be taking over all aspects of the events we hold in the center and has brought a positive energy to the center that everyone loves. We also hired Amber on as a receptionist after over a year of working for us through a staffing service. We’re excited to have her on as an official part of the Salt Lake team. All of the staff here at the center are looking forward to working together to help the center reach its full potential.
