Lancaster Archery Academy December Newsletter

December is upon us, and so indoor archery is kicking into high gear.

Target bows are getting the dust wiped off them. Large-diameter arrows are getting refletched. Three-spot targets are getting chewed up like bubble gum.

We love this time of year.

It’s also Christmas time, and so everyone should be thinking about what to get for the archers in their lives. We have you covered, with our archery-themed, holiday gift guide.

Come out and join us for tournaments, classes, practice – whatever. We’d love to see you during this special month.
