04/07/14 - The outdoor 10 week 3D league will be starting up on April 20th, read about all the details here.

03/09/14 - Hello fellow members, the club is going to need volunteers this year as we have in the past, concerning set-up and tear down of the 3d course.

Volunteer help is what makes this club a success.

In an effort to reward or give back, a list of members will be kept in a log book, each time you help set-up or tear down, it will be noted. A raffle ticket will also be filled out and given to you, the other half of the ticket will be put into a bucket. Our last shoot will be September 13th, at that time we will draw one ticket, whoever is picked will receive a gift card.

This is not meant to be a competition, just another way to say Thank You, for volunteering in any way.

*Note first shoot is scheduled for March 22nd from 8am-12am (weather permitting)

There is a Facebook page for Straightened Arrows, it is a group page, the public can view it, but cannot post pictures unless they are a member. We will be taking more pictures in the future, just to let others know what is going on.
