Basic Traditional Archery Level 2 – Lesson Plan 6

All lesson plans are outlines for the class in question, they will be adapted for the ability and desires of the student. Students are responsible for practicing what they learned after the class is over and throughout the week.

Lesson Six:

  1. 10 to 15 minutes: Warm up the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, back and body. Simple movements to get ready to shoot.
  2. This lesson will allow the student the opportunity to shoot a moving target while moving. The target will be a tennis ball; the student will walk and shoot.

This lesson is for students who are participating in the class alone. An alternate lesson will be created for classes that have more than one student.

Archery is a workout. It involves repetitive motion and includes the pulling of bow multiple times, even a 22# draw weight can become heavy. Students will also walk between 10 and 15 yards to retrieve their arrows after shooting three. Dress in comfortable clothes that fit well.

Arm guards and gloves are available for use should the student need them. Getting an archer’s tattoo, when the string hits the elbow or forearm and leaves a red mark or bruise, or blisters is no fun and may hamper future shooting possibilities. Please be aware of your body and your limitations.

If you aren’t feeling well, please stay home. We can provide you with a make-up class, or classes, at some point in the future when you are healthy. Your health is more important than making it to archery class. Just call us and let us know that you won’t make it in. Thank you.

Lincoln City Archers League: Rules of Engagement

Our archers league is meant to be for fun and games. We want people to enjoy archery and find others who like to do the same thing. We use traditional bows on our range.

We expect participants to help each other and uplift one another while allowing beginners to grow their skills. Our atmosphere is relaxed and empowering. We celebrate each other’s wins. League participants have the opportunity to suggest changes to the schedule of events.

Archers league members receive 40% off regular shooting fees throughout the week. Members who attend all 10 league nights or pay the full $450 league dues at one time will receive the shooting discount through Mar. 31, 2022. Members are expected to book their line time online or over the phone. However, walk-ins will be accepted on a space available basis.

Non-league members are welcome to join us at the cost of $50 for one session. However, league night participation is limited to 20 people with league members having priority.

If you feel sick, please stay home. Your health is more important than archery league night. If you’re ill and cannot make league night, you may still be able to participate in league activities throughout the week, depending on the activity.

Our fall league is focused on lightly competitive games like Tic Tac Toe, which we call Nick, Nock, NO!, and Archery Baseball. We will also have a team game, Zombie Apocalypse Live Action Arcade, where a team of up to four can face off against the zombie horde.

Our winter league, which will start in February, will focus on achievements like bamboo shooting, the cupid challenge, and intentional Robin Hooding. We will also play Nick! Nock! NO!

For more information on our league nights, check out our league night press release or contact us at 503-409-8371. Join us for indoor archery in Lincoln City.

Archery Baseball Rules

You will need three ducks, preferably of varying sizes, including a tiny duck. You will also need a bow, three arrows, and a target that can be pushed back as the game progresses. An umpire is helpful, but not necessary, as the only person who loses when they cheat at this game is the cheater alone.

The object is to score the most runs by hitting the duck with your arrows.

The game is divided into innings of a number that makes sense for the time allotted and the space available. Baseball games are typically seven or nine innings, which is also the number we suggest.

Each arrow is a pitch. An arrow that misses the duck is a strike. An arrow that hits the target below the duck is a strike, unless it causes the duck to fall off the target, then it is an out. An arrow that hits the duck after rebounding off of something (like a back netting) is a strike, unless it causes the duck to fall off the target, in which case it’s an out. Three strikes equal one out. Three outs end the inning.

An arrow that hits the duck but does not stick is a base hit. An arrow that sticks in the duck after they come to rest is a home run. Four base hits equal one run (point), and every base hit after the fourth is a run, unless the bases are cleared by a home run. A home run equals one run plus the number of single bases hit before it. No home run will be worth more than 4 runs, and the number of base hits becomes zero after each home run (as the home run clears the bases).

The archer starts 10 yards from the target with the largest duck sitting sideways at the front of and on the top of the target. The archer shoots arrows until the duck is off the target or the three arrows are used. If the duck was hit – scoring a base hit or a home run – the second, smaller duck replaces it. If the duck was not hit, the archer puts the duck back into position, grabs the arrows, and returns to 10 yards away. If the second duck is hit, the smallest duck replaces it. If the smallest duck is hit, it is replaced facing forward. If it is hit again, it is replaced facing backwards. The archer continues shooting at the backwards duck until three outs are recorded.

Once three outs are up, if the archer has scored any points, the target moves back a yard and the process is repeated. When there is no more space available, the archer shoots for one more inning, and the game is over.

These rules are a work in progress. The video below contains the first version of Archery Baseball. If you have a suggestion on how to improve the game, leave a comment.

Basic Traditional Archery Level 2 – Lesson Plan 5

All lesson plans are outlines for the class in question, they will be adapted for the ability and desires of the student. Students are responsible for practicing what they learned after the class is over and throughout the week.

Lesson Five:

  1. 10 to 15 minutes: Warm up the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, back and body. Simple movements to get ready to shoot.
  2. The student will shoot with a focus on distances. Starting at 10 yards, the student will shoot for five minutes, alternating hands until a bull’s eye is hit with each hand or the time has expired. After that the student or the target will be moved a yard away and the process will continue until a maximum distance of 20 yards.

This lesson is for students who are participating in the class alone. An alternate lesson will be created for classes that have more than one student.

Pirate Treasure Recovered on the Oregon Coast

As a new shop owner, I was amazed at some of the things I found in my store. The previous owners had left quickly, so I had a lot of things to organize and a few things to clear out. The most curious item I found was an old journal wrapped in a plastic bag. I opened it gently because it looked like it was ready to fall apart. However, I was soon to find out that looks can be deceiving.

I removed the book from the bag, and set it on a table. It was about the size of weekly newspaper. The leather was well-preserved, and the pages inside were beautifully handwritten. The first page claimed the book to be the Journal of Seamus McClenaghan, Captain of The Archer. As a lover of books, I was immediately drawn into Seamus’ story. The journal had the standard logs of a ship’s captain, including inventories, weather, and daily reports from officers, but the writing in between those required items was beautiful. It was clear that Seamus was no ordinary captain.

I did some research on Seamus to find out more about him, but there was precious little to be found in the Oregon histories. I was lucky enough to stumble across one newspaper clipping from a New York paper that claimed Seamus was responsible for a series of raids had taken place on ships in the Pacific Northwest. They dubbed the pirate “The Librarian” because his ship ran silent, his crew used no guns, and the first thing he removed from his victims were their books – diaries, log books, and tomes of all kinds. As I read further into the journal, I realized that the crew of the Archer was adept at using bows and arrows. Seamus mentioned constructing a version of Leonardo da Vinci’s giant crossbow and using several ballistae. They would use the cover of fog to sneak up on their victims and decimate the crew of the other ship with arrows that would seemingly appear out of nowhere.

Like all pirates, Seamus had a secret hoard that he hid along the coast. He left the coded map in his journal with a note about how the greatest treasure would be found in his chest.

That chest has been discovered and awaits the one who can open it. However, the process isn’t as simple as breaking a lock. Seamus created a test for the one who would take his treasure. Only an archer with true aim could get inside the box without destroying its contents. First, the archer must strike the captain’s golden coin to reveal the lock. Then the archer must hit in the dead center of the keyhole. Any other hit to the lock will disable the mechanism.

We’re looking for the archer who can recover Seamus’ treasure. If you’re ready to get your share of the pirate’s booty, come to Lincoln City Archery on Sep. 19 and 20 to shoot some arrows and learn about our archers league.

Lincoln City Archers League Starts Sep. 20

Lincoln City, OR (August 24, 2021) – Lincoln City Archery will launch its first ever Lincoln City Archers League on Sep. 20, 2021. The League will meet for 10 Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 for camaraderie, fun and games. Individuals who are interested in improving their traditional archery skills are invited to sign up for the league in advance as space is limited to the first 20 people. At this time, archers will be limited to using traditional bows (long or recurve bows) of 35 pounds or less draw weight.

“We want to give local archers an opportunity to come together for some fun indoor activities,” said Shad Engkilterra, owner of Lincoln City Archery.

On Sep. 20, we will complete the paperwork for archers and give them a chance to shoot on the range. Available range time will be divided up, and we will use a pirate setting for an additional challenge. Everyone will get a chance to get their share of the pirate booty. Other games used during the league may include Nick, Nock, No!, Archery Baseball, Zombie Apocalypse, turkey shoot, and/or Duck Hunt tribute. Archers will help decide how events proceed.

“This is our first league, so I expect that we will be making some adjustments on the fly,” said Engkilterra. “We’re going to focus on fun and fair with some video game theory thrown in.”

A proposed calendar will be released before the Sep. 20 meeting. The cost for archers is $600 per person, which includes the use of range equipment and a discount for archery sessions during the week. Payments may be made on a weekly basis at the normal league night price of $75. League members may also be able to make up some events during the week. Awards will be given out at the last league night, Nov. 29.
