This weekend, Stowe Archers was proud to host our first Outdoor 3D Shoot of the 2017 Season. This month we decided to try something a little different and shoot both Saturday and Sunday. Despite cold and wet weather on Saturday, attendance was promising. Going forward, we will continue to shoot the 4th Sunday of each month (April through August) as well as the Saturday before.
Most scorecards weren’t turned in, however, the available results have been posted down below. In addition, targets and distances have been included for those that were curious about a particular target.
We would thank to thank everyone that came out to shoot our course this month. We had some fantastic feedback and everyone seemed to enjoy the tough shots and use of terrain. Thanks for making the April Outdoor 3D Shoot at Stowe Archers a success!

Since the beginning of January, the Stowe Archers indoor range has been buzzing with activity. Throughout the week, archers would come in and practice for our weekly 450 League on Tuesday nights.
Ever since Walt took over the league three years ago, small tweaks have been made each year to try and make the teams as competitive as possible. This year handicapping was changed from a 10-Week Average to your Season Best.
For some archers, this change lit a fire under them and the competitive juices began to flow. For other archers, this change lead to lopsided scores. While no one complained, as league administrator, I preferred seeing tighter scores and a broader distribution of points throughout the season.
Despite lower total scores, the 2017 Stowe Archers 450 league Finals were fun to watch. There were some excellent matchups – I hope you enjoy the video and commentary below.
On February 18th, Stowe Archers hosted our first Indoor 3D Money Shoot of 2017. Interest was high and we filled two lines without much trouble. We had a couple of no-shows but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the feedback has been fantastic. We are thrilled that everyone had a good time and hope to see everyone back soon.

For the past couple of weeks there have been a lot of members at the Stowe Archers Indoor Range practicing for the upcoming Lancaster Classic. There has been a ton of buzz surrounding the event (there usually is, it is a hugely popular event) and I thought it would be nice to try and have a place for our members to track the event and cheer on the home team.
Just like last year, scoring is being done Live by Rcherz. Below is a list of our Members (my apologies if I miss anyone) if you’d like to root for the home team.
