Archery was practiced in antiquity on every continent and was the means of supplying the fruits of the hunt as well as the weapon used in great battles. And now those of you who feel like Robin Hoods and Dianas will be able to participate in that ancient art. AGELESS ARCHERY will be held at OLLI on Mondays, April 8 to June 3, 10:30 to 12:30, at the CSULB Archery Field under the leadership of Mel Leach, Professor Emerita, Head Varsity Coach and Gold Medal Competitor. She has been an inspiration to us with her enthusiasm and great proposals for activity classes.
An archery class was first offered in the fall and the 20 students who participated were pleasantly surprised at how well they did. They even opted for a second practice session this Winter under Mel’s expert guidance. There is a limit to the class size - be sure to be prompt with registration this March.
Her enthusiasm for the class can best be shown in her words, “Would you like to experience an awesome harmony in your mind and body with the bow and arrow. You can master the challenge of ageless archery.” Through course instruction and practice, the joy of shooting an arrow into the x of the target will be yours. If you have tried archery in the past or have just dreamt of shooting an arrow, this course will enhance your skills. You will experience the thrills of healthy activity and a feeling of youthfulness through the art of archery.
