2018 has been a great year for the club.

Many of our members have traveled to USAT events this year with great results.  You can find many of the them at the range on a regular basis.

The club championship is only weeks away.  Stay tuned for updates.

Outdoor season is here and a brand new website for Nassau Bowmen

Posted in Club Info

2018 might seem to be off to slow and “cold” start. However, our long-awaited outdoor archery season is finally here and the weather is looking better by the day. I hope everyone will take advantage of this one-of-a-kind venue on Long Island this spring, summer, and fall to enjoy archery. You can become a Nassau Bowmen member here.

For a fresh start, we completely redesigned the Nassau Bowmen logo and website. Our goal was to give the club a fresh and modern look and feel. I hope you like it.

Let’s all try and promote our great sport and club. Bring a friend, a partner or a co-worker to a Saturday session and help them experience archery.

Look for great things this 2018 season.

What beats a tall glass of water?  A tall glass of water while you are on the range.

At the Lancaster Classic, I had a conversation with Chuck Cooley and some archers regarding Eye Strain and Hydration.  Chuck is a Professional Archer and Optician.

Chuck explained that the eye is basically a muscle that is stressed during the aiming process just like your biceps when working out.  If you are not properly hydrating before and during practice/competition you can encounter aiming issues since the tissues/muscles are not properly flushing out toxins.

During the aiming process your eye muscles flex to focus on your pin or target. Over the course event dehydration will cause eye strain and dryness leading to loss of focus while aiming.  You might end up blinking a lot to lubricate your eyes and possible get headache. Your is basically a ball of fluid, drink up.

This is an interesting short article related to Dehydration and eyes.

How Can You Help The Club?

In the past 2 years the club has grown and become stronger. Our events are more widely attended by the surrounding clubs in the tri-state area.  We’ve made investments in new equipment, timing systems, matts and stands.  Without the help of our members this would not be possible.

If you have a desire to become involved in club there are several committees looking for additional members with fresh ideas.  You do not need experience in any particular area, believe it or not you don’t even need to be an archer.

The Communication Committee is looking for assistance with the club news letter and social media pages.

The Tournament Committee is looking for assistance with event setup which includes field setup, signage, score cards and results. The 2018 event planning sessions will begin in the fall along with the scheduling of the NYS Outdoor Championships.

Field Committee is looking looking for a few volunteers to assists with the 2018 Try Archery Days schedule for 2018. As a volunteer you would assist new archers with taking their first shots with the bow.  You’ll also act as an ambassador of the club answering any questions they might have about archery in general or the Nassau Bowmen Archery Club.

If you have a desire to see the club grow or want to get involved with a committee; send us an email or chat with us during one of the practice sessions.
