Hey Blue,  I am surprised no one has replied about North Va clubs.  I'm heading to the Baltimore shoot tomorrow.  I know several people there that live in that general area.  I'll tell them about your post and get you some responces.

I'm not aware of any traditional only clubs in NOVA.  You ought to make the drive up to the Baltimore shoot this weekend though.  It is a great shoot and there are plenty of vendors.  Check out and look up the Traditional Classic for all the info.

When I lived up there and was member of Traditional Bowhunters of Maryland...I seem to remember some guys in NOVA that would come to some of the shoots.  here is all I could find though:

Traditional Bowhunters of Virginia-John Gresham, 4616 Ladysmith Rd., Ruther Glen, VA 22546, 804-448-1411,

Virginia Traditional Bowhunters/Dixie Bowmen-Bo Slaughter, 5210 Hurop Rd., Sandston, VA 23150, 804-737-9139,

Buffalo Creek Traditional Archers-John T. Latocha, 405 Terrace Dr., Mannington, WV 26582, 304-986-3045,

Mountain State Sportsmen's Association-Steve Cox, P O Box 191, Parkersburg, WV 26102, web site:

Depending on what part of NOVA you are located one of those might be close...if not...consider joining Trad Bowhunters of Maryland as they have members from NOVA, PA, MD, DE...and have quarterly shoots/meetings plus a lot of other activities.

Traditional Bowhunters of Maryland-John Laws, 914 Camden Ave., Salisbury, MD 21801,

Northern VA Archers (NORVA) isn't in your neighborhood, but we're not too far away either.  Up I-95 until you hit Rt 123 in Lorton.  A few miles up 123 and you're practically there.  I can meet you there if you're interested in checking it out.
