   Greetings to All

Well, 2016 deer season ends December 31, with lots of successful hunts this year! Congratulations to all who filled tags, and for any who didn't just remember, a bad day hunting is still better than a good day working...

Indoor league starts January 3 and 4 and will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday nights through March 21 and 22. First 4 weeks are handicap. You can miss 1 night and get your handicap score for that week. Awards night will be in Apirl.

The state archery association shoot planning meeting was attended by Kevin Douglas and Jerry Allen, andour shoots are published on the state page along with many others. We are blessed to live in an area where we could easily find a shoot to compete in every weekend of the year. Shoot dates are listed elsewhere in the newsletter, and you can check out the state site at 

A Christmas/Holiday/End of 2016 club gathering and Cottonwood Archery Club meeting is planned for December 18, Sundday, 6-8 p.m. at the indoor range. Please bring a favorite potluck item to share, and byob. Alcoholis ok but if drinking then no shooting, or shoot first. Come on out for a social gathering with your fellow arrow slingers.

 Cottonwood had a great outdoor season in 2016 and will be adding to the target collection. Our Memorial 3Dshoot was a success again this year, and we were able to raise some money for the children of Jeff Craft. The money goes into a fund and is for thier future needs.

 This fall CAC members once again stepped up to support the local chapter of Pheasants Forever at thier Youth Mentor Hunt at Bunker Hill by providing archery instruction. Gotta keep sharing our skills with the youth to keep the traditions going.

The Joad club continues to grow, with youth shooters competing in the compound 3D and Olympic recurve. JOAD is held on Monday nights, 5:30-7:30 p.m. every week. Pin shoots are held the 3rd Monday of each month. All ages are welcome! Cost is $10 per night, $3 per pin. Participants must have a membership to USA archery. Membership information is available at the range or at USA Archery:

Reminder: Membership dues are $25/youth; $40/adult single; $50/family. Your membership dues help us provide awwards, targets concessions for outdoor shoots and make the club possible. Thanks to every archery club member!
