FCL July Introduction to Archery Class

Introduction to Archery

On Saturday, July 15, 2017 the Fitchville Conservation League and its volunteer instructors offered an Introduction to Archery Class for the area communities. Over 35 students participated in the safety class and the live archery session. FCL Vice President Gary Bradt, the lead instructor for the event started with a short demonstration of proper archery form. The students were then divided into 5 groups and five stations were established each with its own instructor and the fun was on. This free class was funded by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Fitchville Conservation League.
