Hear ye! Hear ye!

The 34th annual Great Lakes Longbow Invitational is coming!!!  August 10, 11, and 12, 2018.

the wife and i will be there, coming from NE Wisconsin, decided not to pull the camper that far, plus having to go thru Chicago! So we are taking the ferry across to Ludington, and staying in a tent on the grounds, like we did years ago, when it was in Berrin Springs, cant wait!

You can come and just visit Ron. Tracey is saving a hug or two for you
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!

Is it traditional longbows only? I am asking specifically because I have a Martin savannah which is a pretty heavy r/d. Wish I still had my northern mist.

All longbows, including 3 piece take down r/d longbows, , regular R/D longbows,( St Joe River
Shrews, Strikers, etc) ASLs, selfbows, and even those Bear Polars qualify.  The string can not touch the belly of the bow.

Bring that bow out and come join in the fun!

Mr. Ron, it's good to hear you will make it out this year, considering the surgery.  How is recovery going?

Planning on making the 490 mile drive from Western NY again this year with my son. The folks there in MI are top shelf, a great weekend for sure.

We have some pretty cool guests coming this year...

Now Strike Archery, from England will be flying in and camping with us for the weekend, talking English Longbows. And even doing some Demonstrations, as well as showing people how to do proper english form for warbows. 

Very cool stuff!
