The Club That Friendship Built by Nell Wade

THE YEAR 1935 SAW AVIATRIX Amelia Earhart fly solo from Hawaii to California. Nylon was invented and Elvis Presley was born. Babe Ruth broke the record for most home runs and retired, a legend. And 1935 was the year a serenely beautiful strip of semi-tamed woods, streams and meadows just outside the sprawling city of Los Angeles became the site of the “longest continuously operating NFAA archery club in its original location” in American history. This was the year Pasadena Roving Archers was born. The Arroyo Seco (which means “dry gulley”) has always been a very special piece of land.. Fed by a stream that comes from far up in the San Gabriel Mountains, and well-hidden beneath towering sandstone and granite cliffs and thick foliage, it is endowed with a lush natural beauty. In earlier times, the Arroyo Seco was home to an immense variety of wildlife including deer, cougar, and even grizzly bear. 8 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

October | November 2010

The first aboriginal Native Americans who inhabited the area were the Tongva tribe. It is easy to imagine that there were Tongva archers on this exact site long ago; hunting for their tribe, proud of their archery skills, and possibly even holding archery competitions on the spot where today’s Pasadena Roving Archers now hold their contests. As civilization progressed and the population grew, the Arroyo Seco had its share of famous—and infamous—visitors. During the mid-1800s, legend has it that notorious bandit Tiburcio Vasquez used the secluded Arroyo as a favorite hideout. In 1911, after visiting the Arroyo Seco, President Theodore Roosevelt was so impressed; he remarked that it “might make a great park.”1 In the early 1930s, a small band of archers began to gather at the Lower Arroyo Seco. They saw this undisturbed strip of land as a perfect spot to hone their shooting skills and meet up with other archers who were interested

in field or “roving” style of archery. Through group effort, a common dream, and plenty of hard work, in November 1935, Pasadena Roving Archers (PRA) archery club was founded, making it even older than the NFAA itself. Henry A. Bitzenburger and his wife, Matilda “Babe” Bitzenberger, were the co-founders of PRA. Henry, a Los Angeles archery dealer who, in the late 1930s, was considered to be one of the country’s best archers, was also PRA’s first president. PRA’s second president was Stew Foster, another outstanding archer who also had an artist’s eye. His design for the PRA insignia—the striking image of a kneeling longbow archer—is still in use today. Many newcomers showed up each week to try out their bows and arrows at the beautiful and challenging Lower Arroyo Seco range during the 1940s. The range gained more field target butts and the first PRA clubhouse. The small 15’ continued on pg. 10 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

PRA members are working with the City of Pasadena to get approval for the design concept and then the task of fund raising begins (Illustration by Van Webster). Wife of PRA’s founding president, Henry Bitzenberger, Babe was an outstanding archer in her own right. Here she is seen pulling arrows from her last target as she won her second NFAA tournament at Salt Lake in 1947 (From “First Fifty” by Edward L. Ryman). Pasadena Roving Archers holds archery classes on Saturday mornings. We have enough gear to accommodate over 90 archers per session (Photo by Gary Spiers).

x 25’ building was built completely by hand and by club members. Teamwork was the name of the game as members carried building materials and tools, even heavy bales of straw to use as targets, down steep paths and across the Arroyo stream, stumbling over boulderstrewn trails and slippery rocks, as their clubhouse and range came together. It is believed that massive flooding in the Arroyo destroyed the first PRA clubhouse some time between 1940 and 1941. A second, bigger (30’ x 35’) clubhouse was built in 1945, just north of today’s main target area. The crowning touch to the new clubhouse was a neon sign on the front that proclaimed “PRA.” In the late 1940s, Henry Bitzenberger invented and manufactured his world-famous Fletchmaster fletching jig, one of the most accurate fletching jigs ever designed, and still used by many of today’s archers. In 1949 the entire nation sat up and took notice

when PRA hosted the Fourth National Archery Tournament on their Arroyo Seco home range, drawing an estimated 1,500 competitors and spectators. It was one heck of an exciting way to end the decade! A number of archery clubs populated the San Gabriel Valley area during the 1950s. The Pasadena Target Archers (PTA), started in 1925, had their range set up on the east side of the Lower Arroyo, at the southern edge of the PRA range. The Sagittarius Club range was located northwest of Pasadena, near the town of Sylmar. When the Sagittarius Club lost its land and had nowhere to go, PRA helped out by opening up the unused northern portion of the range to them. This generosity ended up benefiting everyone. For a short time, the shooting style choices being offered at the Lower Arroyo Seco were pretty amazing. An archer could choose to shoot the York and

Clockwise from top left: PRA member Bryan Kaya watches a group of first time archers line up their shots. First time archers are taught in groups of 8-10 people with a certified instructor or coach. On any Saturday PRA may have 3-5 separate first time classes running simultaneously. Coach Obaka Adedunyo watches a group of intermediate archers as they practice on the 20 yard line (Photo by Van Webster). Kenneth C. (K.C.) Clark was Pasadena Roving Archers President in 1968 and Lyetta Clark served as president in 1973 (from “First Fifty” by Edward L. Ryman). Games are an important part of encouraging archery participation. Here first time archers are lined up on the 10 yard line to shoot balloons. There’s a prize for each winner (Photo by Van Webster).

American rounds at the Pasadena Target Archers range, the Hunter and Field rounds at the Pasadena Roving Archers range, or the Broadhead Animal Targets at the Sagittarius range, all within walking distance! During this time, the laminated recurve bow with a center shot was gaining popularity at the range and even beginning to overshadow the traditional and much-loved longbow. Not everyone was onboard with the recurve. Legendary archer and Sagittarius Club member, Howard Hill, was not a fan. “A straight-end longbow that follows the string slightly, with a good cast, carries a heavy string, is pleasing to draw, and is comfortable to the hand can be shot more accurately under hunting conditions than a recurve bow.” 2 However, as the 1950s progressed, more and

more people who were not interested in bow hunting favored the recurve, and it became a permanent fixture at the range. The 1970s was a time of gains and losses for the club. The decade saw a steady increase in PRA family memberships, as more and more archers introduced their children to the sport. This trend continued throughout the decade, due in large part to the family-friendly atmosphere. Since 1972, PRA has had an agreement with the city of Pasadena to teach archery to any and all who are interested and offers classes, which have become a hallmark of the club. PRA also received its first NFAA five-star rating in 1974 and, three years later, a second. During the ‘70s, the new compound bow gained popularity at the range, impressing many archers with its power

and accuracy. This was also a decade when vandals broke into the clubhouse, stealing almost all of the club’s valuable equipment. When word of the theft got out, generous members and local archery dealers quickly stepped up; donating enough in funds and equipment to make sure that the club was able to carry on. As the 1980s began, PRA suffered from steadily decreasing membership. At one point, membership was so low; there weren’t enough members to elect club officers. A general membership meeting was held to establish the future direction of PRA. That evening, only nine people showed up, and that evening—nine critical club board positions were filled!

upon to train the actors in the art of archery, most notably for the recent blockbuster, Avatar. The Basic Archery Instruction

Clockwise from top left: Pasadena Roving Archers member and instructor Robert Storts supervises the balloon round for first time archers at the PRA Saturday Morning Instruction Program (Photo by Van Webster). Long time and still active Pasadena Roving Archers member, Dr. Ron Wong, is shown shooting his flight bow in Wendover, Utah. Ron was the 1983 flight archery champion and winner of the prestigious “Wescott Medal” (From “First Fifty” by Edward L. Ryman). Pasadena Roving Archers hosts a fundraising 3-D tournament each spring. Here archers line up to register for the 2009 edition of the Oaktree 3-D (photo by Gary Spiers).

Although small in number, the club’s members continued to strengthen the bonds of friendship with free barbeques and nighttime “flashlight” shoots. In the middle of one of the night shoots, the sky was suddenly flooded with light. A police officer (and fellow PRA member) was shining the searchlight on his helicopter down onto the archers to help guide them. By the end of the decade, club membership was, happily, once again on the rise. In 2000, PRA members were excited about what lay ahead for their club. But in the early hours of April 13, 2002, a fire started outside the clubhouse and quickly spread to the targets and bales inside. Club officers rushed to the scene, but the clubhouse was a total loss. Many members who were active at this time describe this as the single worst event in the history of PRA—some of them view it as one of the worst times of their own lives. The clubhouse—which many viewed as the heart and soul of the club—was gone. But times of tragedy often bring out the best in people, and this was no exception. Club members and scores of people who used the Arroyo Seco offered to contribute money and


October | November 2010

resources. Neighboring clubs and organizations made generous donations. Archery dealers donated much-needed equipment— and lots of it. In November of 2002, a man from northern California who was visiting the Arroyo Seco and learned what had happened surprised everyone with a gift of an 8’ x 20’ metal shipping container that locked tight and was basically impervious to break-ins. By December, the new storage locker was in place at the range and is still in use today. It is now 2010 and PRA is going strong, with membership approaching 300, thanks, in large part, to the close and essential relationship PRA enjoys with the city of Pasadena, who owns the land. The City of Pasadena has been a long-time supporter of the range and PRA, and its generosity and spirit of cooperation have been crucial in keeping archery alive in the Lower Arroyo Seco. Saturday morning archery classes are more popular than ever, attracting thousands of new archers each year, and any archers visiting from out of town are always welcome to come shoot at the range. When a Hollywood film calls for breathtaking but believable archery skills, the experts of PRA are called

Clockwise from top right: Pasadena Roving Archers began offering free introductory archery classes in the mid 1970s. Here you can see PRA members and young enthusiasts getting started with archery (From “First Fifty” by Edward L. Ryman). Today, Pasadena Roving Archers continues to offer free introductory classes to beginners as well as intermediate instruction and advanced coaching for tournament archers. With as many as 8 classes running simultaneously on a Saturday morning, the instruction and coaching programs draw up to 120 archers to the range each week (Photo by Van Webster). Inset: The early days of archery at the Pasadena Roving Archers range drew out successful archers and rugged individualists. Here is Wright Huff striking a dramatic pose in 1940 (From “First Fifty” by Edward L. Ryman).

Program (BAIP) classes take beginning archers to the next level of skill, and Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) classes nurture the best young archers and help them pursue their dreams of Olympic-level competition. And PRA has recently become a 501(c) 3 public charity, allowing the club to collect tax-deductible donations towards rebuilding the clubhouse. Seventy-five years have come and gone, and PRA is still spreading the word that any and all are welcome to discover the joys of archery within the Lower Arroyo Seco’s magnificent borders. concluded on pg. 35

this in the world with the home crowd cheering me on.” The bronze-medal match for Rodger Willet Jr., of Glouchester, Va., was near perfect in form finding the hit zone 14 of 15 shots. He opened up a commanding lead that France’s Pierre Julien DeLoche could not make up. Willet finished fourth at the 2010 Archery World Cup in Turkey earlier this year. Men’s Compound Team: 2009 World Championship gold medalist Reo Wilde of Pocatello, Idaho, paced the U.S. squad to the gold medal over Canada, 7-5. The set score swapped back and forth and the U.S. had to fight back for the victory. Wilde was the catalyst who anchored the team title by striking the hit zone on 11 of 12 arrows. Gellenthien was solid with 10 of 12 hits. Jesse Broadwater of Jennerstown, Pa., making his first World Cup appearance, fell in the middle of the team and performed superbly in earning his first World Cup gold medal. “It was a good night and the weather was nice, but the wind got a little tricky,” Wilde said. “You have to make sure your team has a chance and to not let them down. I thought Jesse was a little nervous but pulled through well. I have friends here that have never seen an archery competition and it was great for them to see it in person and root us on from the stands.” Men’s Team Recurve: The United States team claimed their first recurve team medal for the 2010 World Cup season by easily defeating China, 222215.

The men’s individual compound match lived up to its billing as the rivalry between 2009 World Cup Final runner-up Braden Gellenthien of Woodbridge, Va., and El Salvador’s Jorge Jimenez took it to the wire, and the fifth time these two have squared off. Gellenthien took an early lead by earning the first set for a 2-0 lead. The second and third sets were tied between the two, but Gellenthien maintained a slim 4-2 advantage. Gellenthien climbed closer to another World Cup gold medal by winning the fourth set for a 6-2 cushion. Braden cleared the hurdle in the last set by finding the center on the last three arrows for the 7-3 medal victory. “The wind was a major factor in this match,” Gellenthien said. “It was not the greatest weather conditions. I was really happy to shoot in the team event earlier tonight for a little extra experience. My preparations for this event is what separates me from the rest of the field. I was able to duplicate my shots, just like in practice. The last shot was dead nuts. It is incredible to do this in front of the home crowd. I feel like I’m going to cry. There is nothing like

The IFAA, in cooperation with NFAA-USA and its member Florida Archery Association (FAA) have approved the Everglades Archery Club to host the IFAA-sanctioned 2010 NAFAC on 10-12 December 2010. FAA will lend assistance and administration to the shoot. The Everglades Club is located south of Miami in Homestead, Florida. If you have never been to Everglade Archers range, you are missing a very diverse shooting experience. The venue offers shots over the lake with mild up-hill and downhill settings. There are no other ranges in Florida like this one. You really do need to be in Florida at some time during the “winter” months. What an excuse to go South with the Snowbirds and enjoy, even for a few days, what they enjoy all winter. Many “Snow Birds” will already have made their way South for the winter. We invite you to come on down! The Price is Right — the time is right!! With the normal format of 28 Animal, 28 Field, and 28 Hunter, the range is set up for four across shooting and you will have plenty of arrows to shoot.

2010 WORLD ARCHERY CUP STAGE 3 and Vic Wunderle of Charlotte, N.C., in addition to USA Archery resident athlete Jake Kaminski of Chula Vista, Calif. The trio opened the first end with a threepoint advantage, 57-54. In the second end, the U.S. increased their lead by five, 114-109. The third end brought Ellison to the line first, who opened with a 9 count. Kaminski started a slew of four consecutive 10s, with Wunderle closing with a 9 count to increase their lead to 167-160. The Americans maintained their lead to close out the round and claim the gold medal and finding the center 10-count 11 times. Kaminski, competing in his first World Cup, propelled the team by shooting two center Xs in the second end. “Brady communicated well with each of us on how he was adjusting for the wind gusts,” Kaminski said. “I would look at my surrounding and adjust accordingly. I fell back on my training and shot sequence. I was just feeling the shot. It helped in being confident in my equipment as I’ve been working with my equipment to make it solid.” Women’s Compound Team: The gold-medal final between Team USA and Canada was alternated back and forth during the first four ends and was tied at 4-4 set points each. The U.S. squad pulled ahead in the fifth being led by a strong end from 2007 World Cup champion Jamie Van Natta of Toledo, Ohio, Diane Watson of Hud-


son, Fla., and 2010 World Cup Stage 2 individual champion Erika Anschutz of Hamilton, Ohio. The three remained solid in the last end to secure their first World Cup team gold of the 2010 circuit. The match rested in the hands of the last shooter in order to keep the medal match ending in a shoot-off. “I kept telling Jamie and Diane that Canada was giving it to us and we just needed take it,” said Anschutz. “We had to believe we were worthy of it. We have gotten better all year as a team. When I let go of the last arrow it went a little to the right. I was just telling myself to make it a good shot.” Mixed Team Compound: In what has turned into a fan favorite event for international target archery, the U.S. team of Van Natta and Willet, Jr., settled for the silver medal after losing to Russia, 5-3. Women’s Individual Compound: World Indoor champion Sandrine Vandionant of France defeated Doris Jones of Canada for the gold medal, 8-4. Van Natta and Irina Markovic of the Netherlands went the distance after being tied 5-5 after the fifth set. The sixth set was the bronze-medal clincher, only after the judge confirmed Van Natta’s first of three arrows was in the hit zone as the arrow was piercing the line. Van Natta won by a 7-5 final score for her second medal of the night. Women’s Team Recurve: The Korean team, who has won every team

competition since the team event was added in 1988, continued their dominance at the 2010 World Cup. This was Korea’s first appearance in the 2010 World Cup and they maintained their perfection with a 209-204 victory over India for the gold medal. Mixed Team Recurve: The Korea team jumped out to a quick lead in the Mixed Team Recurve division against Great Britain and never looked back in winning the gold, 135-129. Women’s Individual Recurve: The Korean women swept the top four positions with Moon Jung Kim defeating Bo Bae Ki, 7-1 for the gold. The bronze medal went to Ok-Hee Yun who knocked off her team member HyunJung Joo, 6-0. Men’s Individual Recurve: The Korean team picked up three more medals with their precision and accuracy. When the pressure was on, the Koreans found the center 10-count to earn the needed set points for victory. Woojin Kim captured the gold by defeating team member Jin Hyek Oh, 7-3. Dong-Hyun Im, the 2009 World Championship silver medalist, took the bronze by defeating Canada’s Crispin Duenas, 7-3. The fourth and final qualifying stage for the 2010 Archery World Cup will be heading into Shang Hai, China, scheduled for August 31-Sept. 4.

For the first time in history, the United States will host an Archery World Cup stage. Utah will welcome elite archers from 35 countries. The pivotal third stage will be contested at Weber State University with the finals held at the picturesque Lindquist Field in Ogden, the same competition venues as the 2009 World Archery Youth Championships. Ogden will also host the Archery World Cup in 2011 and 2012. The Archery World Cup, which started in 2006, has been a popular event for athletes, sponsors, media and fans. The FITA-sanctioned event allows organizers to select unique competition venues, which included hosting the finals by shooting over a canal at the 2009 Archery World Cup in Denmark, and competing from a floating platform at the 2006 final in Dubai. The Archery World Cup has grown into one of the annual premiere events for the international federation

FATHER’S DAY FELL ON THE LAST day of the Big Sky Open this year. We didn’t plan it that way, but it happened. Historically for the archery tournament, fate played its hand in the whole scheme of things for the competing archers.


Tradition is a good thing, but sometimes it is necessary to go out on a limb, try something new and challenging for the side games and still get a great number of entries. The clay pigeon “GoForIt” Team event had reached it’s peak and started slowing down, so we were faced with the problem of coming up with something different, but not taking away the clay pigeon targets from those who loved to shoot them. Friday evening, the Big Sky opened with the traditional “GoForIt” clay pigeon shoot, with each participating archer vying for prize money individually. Actually, this worked out fine, as they did not have to depend on anyone but themselves for score. Archers were categorized into either a Championship or Flight division with women and men competing against each other. The event takes about an hour and half to shoot with a score of 50 being

perfect. In the Championship division, Jeremiah McConnell/CO was the only recorded perfect and of course he came in first for the money and a “Club 50” pin to win the event. Randy Brabec/CO was second with a score of 46, while Tim Gillingham/UT, Mike Kiser/CO, and Cory Monahan/NY all tied for 3rd with a score of 43. Three Flights rounded out the evening competition. Amber Christensen/ ID beat all the men in the first Flight with a score of 45 for first place money; Riley Whiting/UT came in second with a 44 and Daddy Ben (Christensen) tied with Tony Mansfield/CO, Dillon Sether/CO, and Drew Hortman/UT for third. Flight 2 found Kevin Lane/CO in first with a 35. Tied for 2nd was Wm. O”Driscoll/UT, Justin Speakman/CO, Charles Blankenship/TN, Zack Allen/CO, Justin Bliss/UT, and Bob Jacobsen/Ut – all with a 34. Flight Three winner Rick Adams/CO tied with Scott Meineke/CO with a 28 for 1st and second, while Carl Speakman/CO edged out Seneca Francis/UT for third position with a 27. Get ready for next year’s clay pigeons, archers. With the scores being so tight and way too many ties, shoot-offs will narrow the playing

A moment of discussion.

field! Even if it takes all night! Early Saturday morning, after the children said the Pledge Of Allegiance, Linda Marten started announcing names of the first two groups of archers who would advance to the 20-yard practice arena. The 30th Big Sky Open was underway! Conditions for shooting was just right and promised to hold for the full weekend. Thank you God for no adverse conditions (wind, rain or extreme heat)! It looked like we were going to make it through without any incidents including no reports of shooting the wrong target! So the leaders on the first day of individual competition on the colored targets in the Championship Divisions were: Mens FS - Logan Wilde/ID over brother Reo and Rob Morgan/MT; Womens FS - Kris Weaver/Ut over Connie Calloway/TN and Tammy Madewell/ CO; Mens Sr FS – Dee Wilde/ID over Richard Smith/CO and Charles Blankenship/TN; Mens FSL – Randy Brabec/CO over Pat Brown/CO; Mens BHFS – Gary Cowart/UT over Kurt Geist/CO and Ramie Haines/WY; Womens BHFS – Anne Geist/CO over Michele Hobbs/CO and Lisa Tenbrook/CO. Richard Luncangioli/ CO was a single entry in the Mens BB, so he was his only competitor and having a great time! Interestingly enough, the scores spread amongst the competitors ranged from two points upward with no ties for first.

In the Mens Sr FS Flights, Frank Roof/ NV was whomping the daylights out of Gary Thompson/CO and Johnnie Zweygardt/CO. Drew Hortman/UT and Steve Swaeby/CO were leading the Mens Flights and the Sisters Christensen/ID – Amber was leading Lindsay and LeAnn Thompson/CO. As the story continues, they all intended to stay put in first place. But this is getting ahead of the applecart. The most exciting side game hadn’t been played yet and we were anxiously waiting for it to begin.

at five-yard increments might prove to be fascinating for the archers and spectators alike. What we needed were some sponsors and money to make the event even more exciting. So plans for the whole deal was formulated and we found Winners Choice Custom Bowstrings of Oregon and Kiser Trucking of Grand Junction willing to be our Sponsors for the “Shoot-Down.” As we took in entries, the ladies voiced their opinions in wanting to shoot the event, but wanted their own division. So sure, why not! This was the only change of venue for what was to come. The line-up was impressive because you could see who wanted to show off their shooting skills. This is not a timed event, it is strictly performance and you know who has practiced on the clay pigeons and who has not. Mid-afternoon, as we announced Mathews shooters line up.

the beginning of the event a crowd started forming at the edge of the target butts. It had the same ambiance of onlookers you see at a golf tournament. Did it make the archers anxious or nervous? Who knows, but after the first two ends the Flight participants started fading away until the final fifty yards. We were prepared to go to eighty, but the archers were not. In fact, what does a clay pigeon look like at eighty yards? Compare it to a fly on the window at a distance. Maybe. Flight competitors were first up on the ten-yard line. The wind started stirring and the sound of clays breaking with each hit in the hush of the late afternoon brought from the crowds “ohhs” and “ahhhs” as the archers shot, then dropped away at the 20, 25 and on up to 50. At the 55 there were just two archers standing -- Jason WardBig Sky Open all shootdown winners.

To produce a tight group, an archer must execute every shot with the same form. Quite often it is easier and more successful for one to work on duplicating the feeling of the perfect shot rather than the form itself. Sometimes you shoot

Then came the Championship. Ten yards proved to be no obstacle for the men, but at 15, they started to drop away. The women stayed on top of the game until 25 and then they too, started to fade. Connie Calloway and Lindsay Christensen both succumbed at the 35 yardage and tied for third. That left Tammy Madewell and Kris Weaver at the 40, fighting it out for first.

If you can learn to duplicate that feeling, then you have also duplicated the best form that you are capable of using. Blank bale shooting is the best place to start mastering this process. Stand close to the target butt and shoot with your eyes closed. Stay relaxed and focus on the muscles used to execute the perfect shot. As the feeling of the shot becomes stronger, focus on duplicating the feeling. Once you are com-

October | November 2010

The people have spoken! And guess who’s been named the Favorite Hunting Personality by the readers of Outdoors Magazine? None other than Ted Nugent! Outdoors Magazine conducted a Public Opinion Poll designed to gauge the public’s perspective on the role of television and celebrities in the sport of hunting. And it seems that Nuge won by a landslide! “I have celebrated this amazing, humbling connection with America’s sporting families forever. I am a very lucky man to have so many gungho BloodBrothers out there,” said Nugent, commenting from the road on his

Easton Foundations National Field Archery Association Foundation





Deadline for 2011 scholarship applications to be received at the NFAAF Office in Yankton is December 31, 2010. The winners will be announced at the World Archery Festival Vegas Shoot, February 2011. The NFAA Scholarship Committee will review and rank the applications, place each applicant into the appropriate category and present their suggestions to the Joint Scholarship Approval Committee for their approval. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee, consisting of two Directors of the National Field Archery Association Foundation and two Directors of the Easton Foundations, will make a joint decision on winners and the final amounts for each scholarship. The NFAA National Office will notify all applicants if their application was denied or approved, and the amount of the scholarship. If approved, it will also describe the procedure for the scholarship payment. For all scholarships greater than $500, the recipient will receive an Archery Activity Report form that must be completed and sent to the NFAA National Office twice a year, showing their archery activities during the year.

APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS The maximum amount of all scholarships for the first three years will be $50,000 per year. The goal is to provide 50% of the scholarships to recurve archers and 50% to compound archers. A secondary goal will be to split the scholarships equally between men & women. • Applicants must be a member of the NFAA or the NAA/USA Archery. • Applicants that are not graduating from high school in the current year (JOAD, NASP, junior high, or high school freshman/sophomore archers) may apply. ■ For this group, any approved scholarships will be held by the Foundation until the student notifies the Foundation they are graduating from high school, and the name of the qualified school they plan to attend. • High school applicants must be applying to be full time students at a two or four year college/university or a technical training college (these are considered qualified schools). ■ Applicant must maintain a 2.0 GPA minimum on a 4.0 scale in the current year. • College applicants must be full time students at either a two or four year college or university. 30 ARCHERY MAGAZINE

SCHOLARSHIP LEVELS 1. JOAD, NASP, Junior High, High School, Junior College or Trade College Students: Eligible for $500 scholarships. 2. College Freshmen, Sophomore, or Juniors: Scholarship amounts will vary between $500-2,500 based on the archer’s accomplishments, future competition plans, and the following: a. Applicant is attending college, participates in the college archery club program, and is shooting competitively. b. Applicant is attending a college that does not have an archery club program, but the student is shooting competitively on their own. i. If the student starts a new archery club program at their school, this will be a major factor to receive a scholarship the next year. ii. Students that are more successful starting archery clubs will be considered for greater scholarship amounts. 3. If the Applicant has made the current Olympic, PanAm, or Other International Team through the USA Archery selection process: Scholarship amounts will vary between $2,500-5,000 based on the archer’s accomplishments and future competition plans. a. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee may approve a ‘training grant’ for Olympic, PanAm, or World Team members that have graduated from college, and allow them to use the grant to pay for training, and competition travel expenses without needing to be spent on the archer’s education. (Though this situation is expected to be rare, it will allow top US archers to apply for financial support.) 4. The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee has the discretion to create a larger scholarship for an extraordinary applicant (up to $20,000) depending on specontinued on page 39

continued from pg. 20 Richard Smith and Ray Tenbrook/CO to try and hit a diminishing clay pigeon at the 60. You’re right! At this yardage, the clay pigeon looks smaller, so concentration is really a must. And what happened next was straight out of life itself! They all missed! Oh yes, they were all granted another try and this time Ray failed to connect leaving Smith and Schaff as sole survivors at the 60. However, you can’t have two first places, there can only be one. So once again, with the wind having it’s fun, the pair planned their strategy and pulled back, aiming, as they never had before. Smith missed, Josh did not and claimed the $300 purse!

A happy Father’s Day there as well, even if Kurt isn’t Anne’s father! Randy Brabec scored first in the Mens FSL division for a purse of $695 and Kris Weaver won first in the Womens FS division for a total purse of $625. The Christensen Sisters, Amber and Lindsay won $225 and $135 respectively in the Womens Flights while Daddy Benton managed to tie for 3rd in the Mens First Flight and get some of his money back. The Greathouse girls, Madelynne and Taylor held up their archery win for the parents by winning the Cadet Amateur division. The Big Sky Open was honored to have the local Ford Dealer, Western Slope Auto Company as a major sponsor. Western Slope Auto Company, in turn had two of their employees winning impressively: Cindy Mansfield won first in the Womens 2nd Flights taking home $225 and LeRoy Brown winning second in Mens 2nd Flight for a purse of $188. The new Ford pickups displayed in the parking lot of the DoubleTree for the archers to “drool over”, were also impressive. Thanks to Western Slope Auto Company for their sponsorship. The “buzz” at this Big Sky Open centered on Hoyt and Mathew’s. Our famous two major sponsors have created the question of “Why does Hoyt dominate with winners at the Big Sky Tournaments? The line-up of Mathew’s at this year’s event was impressive. And thanks to Mathew’s Pro-Staffer, Derek Phillips, Mathew’s shirts were all over the line-up. Perhaps the answer lies within the shooters themselves. After all, the Big Sky Open is a target tournament. Thanks to two sponsors for helping

continued from pg. 34 us with the Big Sky Open as well as Martin Archery; Specialty Archery; Sure-Lock Archery Products; Jakes Archery; Sportsmans Warehouse and the USArcher magazine. Thanks to all our Bale Advertisers and those who donated door prizes. It is very much appreciated by everyone. What is so great about archery is the fact this sport requires you to think, to focus. It is great to be in good physical shape, but archery does not require you to be extremely physically fit. However, it does require you to be mentally superior to your opponents. Think better, focus better and aim better. Archery is a family sport. Not many sports can boast the fact that fathers, sons and daughters (even the wives) can stand on the same line and compete for awards, at the same tournament on the same day. Yes, there are some, but target archery gives the whole family a chance to compete in that regard. There were many more fathers, sons, daughters and wives competing in the Big Sky Open who made each other proud winners for a happy Father’s Day. All this can be viewed on our website, Check there also for the 31st Big Sky Open June 17, 18, 19, 2011! ■

Championships? Did the applicant participate at the USIAC in the prior year? 6. Did the applicant participate in the NAA or NFAA Sectional Tournaments in the prior year? 7.

The applicant’s GPA, college entrance scores, and community support activities, are important Ranking Selection Criteria, and will be considered after evaluating the applicant’s archery experience and capability to improve/enhance future US Archery Teams. 5.

The Joint Scholarship Approval Committee will make the final determination of which students will receive scholarships and the amount of each scholarship. ■



continued from pg. 13 Like the very first founding members of Pasadena Roving Archers, today’s members maintain the range, staff the equipment, repair the targets, conduct the classes, and strive to make sure everyone is shooting well, shooting responsibly and having fun. PRA members are, first and foremost, archers. It’s what binds them to their club and why they care so much about its welfare. But they’re also friends; friends who shoot together, compete together, laugh together, argue together, and share each other’s setbacks and triumphs. They’re family—just like the generations of PRA archers who came before them. Driven by a deep love of the sport of archery and a sense of adventure, their forebears blazed a trail and left it in the membership’s care. Today’s PRA members treasure that legacy and feel honor-bound to light the way for future generations of archers to come. Long live the club that friendship built. Long live Pasadena Roving Archers. ■ 1,2 First Fifty: Pasadena Roving Archers, Inc. 1935–1985, by Edward L. Ryman SOURCES: First Fifty: Pasadena Roving Archers, Inc. 1935–1985, by Edward L.
