NH ARCHERY CLASS HITS BULL’S-EYE WITH KIDS OF ALL AGES 

 

Enfield Outing Club members made a surprising discovery while teaching Intro to Archery classes in 2019—the parents were just as interested in learning as their kids. Parents were required to attend with their eight- to 16-year-olds for safety reasons, but that became a win-win when it sparked extra interest. 

 

“The parents were there, and the first one said, ‘Hey, can I shoot?’ Then the next one said, ‘Hey, can I shoot , too?’ and before we knew it, they were all shooting,” says volunteer Kevin Howard.

 

Kevin and his wife Peg are president and secretary respectively on the board of the Enfield Outing Club. Kevin is also the chair of the Upper Valley Chapter of RMEF serving as cochair for two years and merchandise chair before that. Peg serves as treasurer. 

 

The Howards wanted to expand the Enfield Outing Club with new activities in the community. “I’ve been shooting bows since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, so I figured let’s do some archery,” says Kevin. 

 

He and Peg worked with the town of Enfield to host archery classes in 2019, with help from other club members Sarah, Kevin and Ciara Hart—all also RMEF volunteers. They started with a mongrel pack of well-used recurve bows and worn bag targets. But once grants started flowing in from RMEF and Friends of the NRA, the group purchased elk, deer, turkey and coyote 3-D targets, as well as Genesis compound bows that make flinging arrows easier for kids of every age. 

 

“Some of the little guys and girls had a rough time holding and drawing the traditional stuff. The Genesis bows are just much easier to use,” says Kevin. 

 

While events were scheduled throughout 2020, the program was scaled back once the pandemic struck. They shrunk the classes to no more than six kids with their parents so they could socially distance during classroom time, which included safety training. Using these precautions, they were able to host two Intro to Archery classes and hold an outdoor archery shoot on September 7. 

 

“The equipment Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation helped the club purchase is top notch, and my boys (then age 17 and 12) really enjoyed their time on the range,” says club member William Rayno. Shara Buffington says her 13-year-old twins were also thrilled taking the class and getting outside with other kids during COVID.

 

The Howards plan to host four classes in 2021 starting June 28 for both youth and adults and are now creating a new women’s-only class. Kevin says he and Peg love to share the joy of archery and pass it on to the next generation. 

 

“We’re looking forward to many more classes,” says Peg.

Being there for the community has always been part of the Enfield Outing Club's mission, whether acknowledged or not.  But sometimes, it's nice when someone does notice.  Massad Ayoob did just that with his 4/24/20 blog in Backwoods Home Magazine.  If you have a moment, please take a look to see what he had to say about the EOC.
