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.
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 (email@example.com) as an acceptable incoming address or will need to go to the FAA Website to get current information. Tim.
