General Information

Archery has started for the new year Oct 2013 to June 2014

Who can join?

Youth, ages 8 and in third grade, through Senior in High School may participate in 4H shooting sports.

Parents or other interested adults may join in an adult leader or assistant capacity, as long as they are a minimum of 21 years old. There may be 4H online training required as well.

Each youth is required to fill in the forms for enrollment. These forms are found on the web site in the block above labeled "Enrollment Forms". Bring them to the first meeting.

Please send an e-mail to the club stating which night of the week you want. Mon or Tue or Wed or Thur. Do not send this e-mail until the date shown on the calendar. It will be somewhere around the end of Sept. We allow 16 youth each night and it is a first come (e-mail) registration. Please give a first choice and a second choice. We will respond to which night you have by the 1st of Oct.

The Flaming Arrows 4-H club will be starting up for another year and taking new members in September 2013. Project meetings are once a week starting around the first of October until about the end of May (see Calendar on web site for complete schedule, including holidays. The calendar will be updated shortly).

Archery shooting skills and safety are taught at each practice, Mon or Tue or Wed or Thur or Fri. We have a group each night that meets from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and Tue 4:30-6pm

In addition, the club will meet on some Saturdays for club meetings and activities, see Calendar.

Members will sign up for one of the nights. You will need to stay with that schedule through the year, unless you make prior arrangements. We encourage all archers to attend weekly. As we tend to fill our archery ranges, we request that you let the Range Master know when you will not be there. Limited make-up sessions can be scheduled for another evening, if there is room on the range, and arrangements have been made in advance. All correspondence is done through the web page and some through the email. It is requested that a parent/adult remain at the range.

In an emergency, e-mail or phone calls will be made to notify all if the range is not in operation. Please keep us up to date on e-mail addresses and phone numbers. We have had to cancel due to weather or power outages, and have had difficulty in the past reaching everyone. We are sorry if you show up and archery is canceled.

Information for all: This year (2013) club fees will be $35.00 plus County Fee $20.00 at the start of the 4-H year. Total of $55.00. Break down of fees paid is: targets for the club ($5), insurance ($1), County Fees ($19), and archery supplies such as target butts, arrows, armguards, tournaments etc for the club ($15), Club Leaders ($5), Building rental ($10), so your leaders can bring you the best program possible. If you are not familiar with 4-H please call the 4-H office at 337-7157, or visit http://kitsap.wsu.edu/index.htm

If you have more than 3 youth signing up in your family, the County Fees and insurance will remain at $60, with no additional charge per youth. County fee only needs to be paid once in any project, so if you are in Cats, Dogs and Archery you only pay once. The club fees will remain at $35 per youth.

The club fees do not include the cost of making arrows or other projects. Those will be charged separately as needed. With the cost of the projects and the club fees, we anticipate the total cost to be about $2 to $3 per week of archery instruction. We will be filling out 4-H club paperwork and collecting fees during first club meeting in October. Please check the calendar and bring a parent. The youth will also elect club officers at the first club meeting. A separate e-mail will be sent out covering these elected positions. All project meetings are at the Kitsap County Fair grounds in the Archery barn (Cold in the winter but dry). Saturday meeting locations will be listed on the calendar. All projects (including arrows) will be on a pay as you make them basis. We will not collect at the beginning of the year, because the price is not known until supplies are purchased.

The club has some bows and arrows that you can use. We recommend that you use the club's bows and equipment for awhile. If you have a bow that you want to use, bring it and have it inspected for safety.

Kim Petersen can assist in properly sizing and purchasing a bow if the youth is interested. He does get good discounts on bows for the youth. Recurves only. The bows take about 1 to 1-1/2 weeks to arrive if in stock.

All funds are paid to the archery club. Make checks to Flaming Arrows 4-H Club.

Youth will fall in one of the three age groups
Juniors 3rd-5th grade
Intermediates 6th-8th grade
Seniors 9th-12th grade
