Lancaster Archery Academy June-July 2018 Newsletter

Beach Boys founder Brian Wilson once said, “Summer means happy times and good sunshine.”

We know Wilson probably surfed more than he shot a bow and arrow, but with a sentiment like that, we have to think there’s an archer in him somewhere.

We are definitely headed into the premiere time of year for archery. If it’s nice outside, shoot outside. If it’s raining, shoot inside. The options are endless.

And whether you like to shoot indoors or out, the Lancaster Archery Academy is here to fulfill your archery dreams.
