Archery League Begins in January at Owl Brook Hunter Education Center

HOLDERNESS — This winter, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will once again offer free archery leagues for both beginners and experienced archers who want to learn new skills or improve their current skills. Each archery league will meet one night a week, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. for four consecutive weeks.

The January advanced league will be held every Tuesday evening beginning January 7, 2014. Beginner/instructional league will begin on Thursday, January 9, 2014. The February advanced league is held every Wednesday, beginning on February 5, 2014. The beginner/instructional league is held every Thursday beginning February 6, 2014.

"This is a great opportunity to get out of the house to participate in an activity that normally takes place in the summer and fall, as well as meet new friends," said Tom Flynn, Facility Manager at Owl Brook Hunter Education Center. "So, whether you are an experienced archer looking to keep your skills sharp over the winter, or someone who just wants to give archery a try, come join the fun!"

Participants in the adult league must bring their own equipment in good working condition. Only field tips or target points will be permitted, no broadheads. All equipment will be provided for the participants in the beginner league.

Registration is first-come, first-served, so if you are interested, call soon. Participation will be limited to 10 people in each league. You must be able to commit to attending all four weeks in order to register. To register, call Tom Flynn or Eric Geib at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center at 603-536-3954.
