Colorado DOW Schedules Three Free Archery Clinics In Lamar
The Colorado Division of Wildlife (DOW) will hold three free archery clinics at the DOW Office at 2500 S. Main in Lamar for adults or youth interested in learning more about the sport of archery.
The dates are Aug. 26, Sept. 9, and Sept. 23.
The Aug. 26 clinic is for experienced archers. It offers an opportunity to get in some practice before hunting this fall. DOW staff will provide coaching upon request.
The Sept. 9 session is beginning archery for adults. The Sept. 23 session is beginning archery for youth 8 and up. Boys and girls are invited to attend the youth session, but must be accompanied by a parent.
Archery clinic hours are 6 – 8 p.m. each night. Activities include instructions and practice shooting at traditional and 3-D targets.
Instructors from the DOW will teach the finer points of shooting bows. The DOW will furnish the equipment, including bows that are designed for youngsters and are used with the National Archery in the Schools Program.
“These events are a great opportunity for people to learn more about this rapidly growing type of outdoor recreation and try their hand at using a bow,” said Linda Groat, an education coordinator with the DOW. “Archery is one of the world’s oldest sports. It is safe and fun when done properly.”
This event is limited to 35 each night, so register early. To register, or get more information, call (719) 336-6608.
