Congratulations to Ken Jones. He is the new NAA Representative for Florida.
USA Archery Camp series is coming to Florida
I was also wondering if we could get the information below posted on the official Florida State Association website and any other media web pages.
Registration is now open for the 2015 USA Archery Camp series!
FLORIDA - 2015 JOAD INTERMEDIATE CAMP INFORMATION
JOAD Intermediate Camps are four-day camp experiences for archers who want to prepare to compete and take their archery skills to the next level! Archers will learn the National Training System (NTS), the mental aspects of sport, goal setting and receive individual instruction from Level 4-NTS and Level 5-NTS coaches.
Participants must own their own equipment, have a minimum of a USA Archery Recreational Membership, and be ages 8 to 20.

Added the ability to pay for shoots.
looking for hunting pictures for the
Archery magazine. If you have some
you would like to share, please send
them to Tim or Oliver with text of who
is in the picture, where it was (the
State the animal was shot in <not -
it was alive> we are not looking for
the address of your hunting site) and
what kind of animal if it is not
obvious. I will create a Hunting
Picture page and of course the Release
would want to use the picture as
well. Thanks. Oliver.
The Vegas Shoot dates have been
set for 2016. February
We are going to have a Team Trophy at the Field. More details to follow. Won by Gold Coast. Second place - Aripeka, Third place - Ft Lauderdale.
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.
The NFAA National Indoor was awarded to Louisville for 2014, 2015 and 2016 and will be held
March 14 – 16, 2014, March 13 – 15, 2015 and March 18 – 20, 2016.
NFAA's KOA Campground is operational and listed on the KOA website. NFAA is a 20% minority owner. All archers attending any of the Tournaments get a 10% archery discount at the KOA.
July and August are very warm here in Florida (yes, I'm telling you something that you already knew). In an attempt to improve shooting and working conditions, we have moved State Championships out of July and August.
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
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.
Is it legal or illegal? What happens when a rule is questioned
