Yes, It is family friendly.  The terrain may be a bit challenging for the little ones but it is a great group of folks!  Send Randy (R.V.T.B.) a PM with any particular questions.

S.T.A.R. SHOOT 2009

Sherwood Archers in Roanoke, Va. is hosting  the 3rd annual Sherwood Traditional Archery Rendezvous or S.T.A.R. shoot on June 6 & 7, 2009.  We will be running a full 28 target field shoot, a 14 target animal shoot, 30 target 3-D shoot , 10 target tough man shoot along with numerous side/novelty shoots.  We hope to have enough going on to keep you shooting arrows all day long.  This will be a traditional only shoot and the only real rules will be no crossbows, no compounds and no sights.  Other than that, come on out and have a great time with us and your traditional equipment.  We will be raffling off a custom  bow built  to the winner’s specifications and will have a take-down recurve bow to give away along with other items as a prizes. Everyone who turns in an entry card will have a equal chance at the bow give away. The shoot will run from 8:00 am-5:00 pm on Saturday and 8:00 am-2:00 pm on Sunday.

Fees

The cost of shooting the S.T.A.R. shoot will be $20.00 per day or $30.00 for the weekend, which includes everything but the tough man and side shoots. 12-18 years olds will be $10.00 per day or $15.00 for the weekend. Under 12 free. As a lot of people brought their families in last year we are offering a family rate for the parents and all children under 18 of $45.00. Most of the side shoots are going to run $2.00 to $5.00 and the raffle tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00.  We will also have t-shirts  for sale.

Lodging

We only have a very few primitive camping spaces available on site and they are available on a first come, first served basis.  There is no charge for camping at Sherwood. We probably have  20 spaces that will be available that weekend so I strongly suggest you call ahead or e-mail me to see if there are any sites open.  We have also have two local hotels that are about 5-10 minutes away.

The Quality Inn at 179 Sheraton Dr. can be reached at (540) 562-1912 or qisalem@hotmail.com.

LaQuinta Inn and Suites at 140 Sheraton Drive . They can be contacted at (540) 562-2717 or  www.baymontinns.com

Dixie Caverns Campground is approximately 8 miles south on interstate 81, directly off of the interstate at exit 132.  This will be a busy time of the year for them and their rates are $24.00 per night for complete camper hook-ups and $6.00 for tent campers. They can be reached at  (540) 380-2085.  As the name implies, this campground is located at one of the large underground cavern sites in the area. It would be a worthwhile side trip if you bring the family.   www.dixiecaverns.com


Food

We will be selling hamburgers and hotdogs at the range house and out on the 3-D course for lunch both Saturday and Sunday.  There will also be drinks and snacks for sale.

Venders
We are currently negotiating with numerous venders and have commitments from several bowyers and archery supply businesses.  We hope to post a listing of venders on our website at a later date.

Directions

Sherwood Archers is located about 5-6 miles off of I-81.  We will have signs up at the interstate exits directing you to the range but it is easy to locate. Take the Rt. 419, exit 141 off of I-81. At the light at the end of the ramp make a left onto Rt. 419.  You will only go about 1/8th of a mile and you will make a right onto Dutch Oven road. You will then make another immediate right ontoTimberview road.  Keep straight on Timberview and you will see the signs for the club on your left.  When you come off of the interstate, if you make a right at the light on Rt 419 you will only go 2-3 hundred yards and you will see  Burger King on your  right.  Sheraton Dr. where the hotels are located runs behind this Burger King. The club is located at 2720 Timberview Road, Roanoke , Va. 24153  if you want to put it into your G.P.S.

Sherwood Archers has been an active archery club since the 1950’s and is located on a beautiful parcel of land. We have numerous outdoor practice targets and a full 20 yard indoor range. Some of our ranges/courses are steep but they are well marked and have well established  trails.  There has been a lot of interest and a resurgence in field archery recently.  I know I used to really enjoy shooting a field course but with the advent of 3-D most of those types of shoots died off.  A lot of the guys who shoot with us now came into archery after that point in time and have never experienced a field shoot so we put one on last year to see how much interest it generate.  A lot of the guys who showed came just to shoot the field course and are coming back for the same reason. One of the advantages for those of us who like to launch arrows is that instead of shooting 30 arrows at a 3-D course you will shoot 112 arrows on a field course at distances of from 20 feet to 80 yards.

We are doing our best to make the 3-D course fun and challenging with shots setup at realistic traditional distances. The animal round and the tough man shoot will also serve to challenge your abilities.  All of the courses will be running at the same time so we hope to have enough going to keep everyone out shooting and avoid too many back ups.

Ultimately we would like for everyone who attends, ourselves included, to have a great time and shoot  until you are tired of shooting. Our slogan for this shoot is “shoot til your fingers blister”  We hope to see you there.

Hmmm, that's the same weekend as Botetourt Children's Fishing Carnival.  I'm going to be hard pressed to work around that as my kids love to go to the fishing carnival.  I may be able to attend in the afternoon/evening.

I just got off the phone a little while ago working out the details of our custom bow for the bow raffle this year.  Elmer Patton will be building our bow this year. The winner will be able to have a Crow Creek Black Feather or a Crow Creek Mag built to their specifications.

Be sure to buy a hand full of raffle tickets this year!

Last year A.L. bought just the one ticket and won the Ancient Spirits bow. I bought $60 bucks worth and won....nothing.
