Attention students, the second session of Archery Club has begun! Mr. Dandridge allows participants to join in 6th or 7th grade with a 2.5 G.P.A or higher. Practices are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Due to recent rains, some practices have been canceled.
There are about 25 members in the second session. The club has started to shoot at giant, foam targets. The arrows they are using are dulled down but could still pierce someone.
Kaleigh Longmeyer, a club member said, ¨It makes me feel like I’m training for the Hunger Games.¨
The club is practicing/perfecting their form so they can shoot their very best! Mr. Dandridge says the club MIGHT compete against Warner, and that’s a big maybe.
The club is so big that there are two groups! On Tuesdays, the ¨old group¨ kids that have participated before will practice. On Thursdays, the ¨new group,¨ the students that are new to the club will practice. Mr. Dandridge says the club is definitely growing in popularity.
