The Virginia Bowhunters Association (VBA) has a new Facebook site. To view this site, go to http://m.facebook.com/VBA-Virginia-Bowhunters-Association-1686388611602197/. VBA supports all archers and bowhunters in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We welcome everyone to this new Facebook.
Our site will be a place to allow VBA Archers across the Commonwealth to share stories, experiences, tips, and events related to Archery and Bowhunting. To that end, Clubs who have their own Facebook site can link to the VBA site, so that when a post is made to your Club Facebook page, it is replicated to our VBA page as well. For those Clubs that don’t have a Facebook page, you can use the VBA page to post happenings at your club and get the word out about your upcoming events!
Unlike news letters or the Flight, the Facebook is more for sharing in real time – someone shoots a Robin Hood at a tournament, they can take a picture with their cell and immediately post it to our VBA Facebook page to share with others. For those clubs who are hosting the State Indoors this weekend, I hope you will post pictures archers competing at your club and share them.
Watch for upcoming Sportsmen & Fishing Expos, shows and events. Also, reports on last years deer, bear and turkey harvest as well as CWD report.
VDGIF will also be celebrating their 100th Anniversary this year.
