I started shooting archery around 1970 when I was 11 years old after my dad took up the sport. I shot my first Florida State Tournament in 1971. My dad passed away in 1988 but some of the best memories I have of him is the time we spent traveling to and shooting tournaments together! I encourage all parents to be involved in an activity with their kids and there is no better Sport to do that then archery! 53+ years later, I’m still shooting! Shoot good and may all of your arrows fly true!
