Newsletter, March 2017

Greetings archers in Texas, and beyond!
 
With record numbers at the TSAA Indoor Championship, and the Texas sectional for the Indoor National and JOAD Championship, both held at Texas A&M, College Station, there is no doubt that archery continues to grow. Clubs are popping up, teams are growing, and the momentum just keeps on pushing forward. It's an exciting time for archery!
 
Indoor Results
Both indoor events at College Station were a huge success. Congratulations to the many archers who attended and secured a podium win. And, a huge thank you to Lorinda Cohen-Gomez, Bill Coady, Frank Thomas, and the team, for coordinating the well run, and enjoyable shoots.
 
And, now for outdoor season...!

Note: this e-mail will also be sent out via the distribution model we have previously used. Distribution may change in the future, to be disseminated to Texas residents via the USA Archery membership portal. E-mails will be archived on the newsletter page on the website, and will therefore still be available to non-Texas residents.
