A Basic Archery Instructor's course was conducted at Kingsboro Bowmen on February 9th, 2013 by NFAA Advanced Certified Instructor and Master Coach Jerry Wenzel for six club members. See page 21 of the Spring 2013 issue of FLIGHT and in the June 26th edition of the Outdoor Report.
Kingsboro Bowmen also recognized Ed Bickham for 30 years as a member of the club and the Virginia Bowhunters Association (VBA). For more on Ed, go to page 22 of FLIGHT.
At the June's VBA meeting, it was mentioned that a draft of the VBA Constitution and By-laws have been developed to consolidate the multiple sections into a single file and modernize the format of the document to make it easier to maintain and use in the future. The Presidents/Secretaries and Directors have been asked to review the new reformatted document and then present their comments and/or questions at the September’s meeting. VBA members should provide their club representatives with any feedback they wish to be incorporated into this review.
