Community Calendar Spotlight on Garby Big Woods Reverse's Archery Range

Around the corner from my house there’s an archery club that holds local and state tournaments. Whenever I drive by during one of their events I think, “man, that looks like fun”.

Last weekend they hosted the Ohio Society of Traditional Archers and I came home a spent about an hour researching the differences between a long bow and a self-bow. Basically both are primitive style bows that measure roughly the height of the archer, but self-bows are made from a single piece of wood with no other backing or laminates.

If your interested in learning more about archery, there’s a beginning archery class this Saturday from 9am to noon at the new archery range at Garbry Big Woods Reserve in Piqua. Pre-registration is required and participants must be at least eight years or older.

List your event on the WYSO community calendar and we might spotlight it on the air!
