FROM COACH MICKEY ESTEP IN WEST TEXAS: I have a few people out here in West Texas and the Panhandle that have asked if I would conduct a Level II Archery Certification Class. I am going to schedule one for June 27 and 28th in Monahans, Texas at a cost of $100 per student, which includes all USA Archery class materials.

Registration Deadline of June 8th.
I want to see if maybe there might be any others interested out this direction.
Just have them contact me for more details or registration information - phone 432-425-5175 or at my email address, Mickey Estep.
