"Archery was always something I imagined myself doing but never tried. Robin Hood, Wonder Woman...
You don't realize how powerful a bow and arrow is until you try it. A piece of wood and a string could be a survival tool or a weapon to protect yourself or those you love. I felt like I was getting back in touch with Nature and my natural instincts."
" Archery was fun and adventurous!"
"Archery gives me courage and confidence!"
"The very act of pulling back a bow opens your heart and builds strength and focus. Standing tall, rooted in the Earth, acting from your heart, good form is beautiful."
Archery Lessons cost $55 for up to two people and $25 for each person after that.
Example a four person private group is $110.
Every 2 people require an $8 arrow deposit given in cash at the start of the lesson and hopefully returned as long as there are no lost or broken arrows at the end of the lesson. Arrow deposits are only in cash.
Ex. A group of four require a $16 arrow deposit.
CLASS DEPOSIT TO HOLD YOUR LESSON. All Lessons require at least a $35 -$50 non refundable deposit to hold your lesson depending on the size of your group. If you don't show you lose your deposit.
Lessons can be paid on pay pal with their 3% fee added to your cost, local check in advance or cash. A popular way is to put the deposit on pay pal and pay the remainder in cash at the start of the lesson,
