I hope you are staying cool ! The Fall Rendezvous is behind us and I would like to thank everyone who braved the heat as bugs to make it a success ! I would like to thank all of the volunteers who gave their time, energy and sweat to make it possible.
We made a few changes. Notably, the water coolers and target placement and so far the feedback has been very positive. Our 1st ever open jam and movie night was a hit, and we look forward to building it up in the future.
There is a Facebook poll ongoing right now to get input on possibly moving the August shoot to October. Your feedback on that would be appreciated !
New dates for 2024 have been posted. Our next shoot will be The Charity Shoot at the Canyons on January 27th . This shoot benefits Camp Boggy Creek and I cant think of a better cause!
Hunting season is fast approaching and I would like to wish everyone good luck and happy hunting. Everyone be safe and please share any hunting pictures and stories you have and we would like to post them on the website.
Hello Everyone !
As we get closer to our Fall Rendezvous August 4-6, There are a few things I would
like to bring up.
It's HOT! Plan to stay hydrated.
As you all know, Florida can be overwhelmingly hot in August. We will keep water supplied on the ranges, but I encourage you to keep some hydrating liquids on hand. (Gator Aid, Power Aid etc.).
Plan for mosquitos and ticks.
Also, expect the bugs to be out. I highly recommend you treat you clothing for ticks.
You can pre-register and pay online!
On a more exciting note, We have set up a pre-registration option on our website. The online registration is closed on Aug 4.
Show your email confirmation when you arrive to pick up your scorecards. Any changes or additions required can be made at this time.
We need volunteers
We need volunteers. There are many things that go into putting on events like we
do at TBOF and we need all the help we can get. We have a volunteer sign up page.
We offer a few perks for your time so check it out !
New Rendezvous events
We have a few exciting new events for the Fall shoot. We will be adding:
Please attend the board meeting.
Our board meeting is Friday, August 4th at 6PM.
I encourage you to come out and participate. This is your organization and your voice counts!
I look forward to seeing you at the shoot and as always, please feel free to reach out to me with
any questions or concerns.
I’m very fortunate to have some very skilled folks around me who are very active in archery and the archery industry.
Over the next few months, you will see a revamped website and a very active presence on Facebook.
Your feedback on what we do online and other suggestions are always welcome!
To start with I would appreciate your feedback on restarting the TBOF quarterly newsletter.
Please click this link to visit the newsletter page and share your mailing information so we can begin to get a list of members who would like to see this magazine published and mailed to subscribed members.
We have a Board meeting on the Friday Aug 4th of the State Championship and the Fall shoot at 6:00
PM. If you are participating in our Fall Rendezvous please attend and share your ideas about what should be included in the magazine so we can vote on how we move forward with this project.
I highly encourage you to come out and participate. This is the main opportunity for your voice to be heard. TBOF is your club and we need your help and participation to set the direction we need to go.
As always , volunteers are always needed. Not only heavy lifting tasks like setting up and taking down ranges. There are many tasks that go on behind the scenes that we can always use help with.
For example, we have the Silver River Knap In every year that attracts an big crowd and allows us to give folks an opportunity to shoot a bow and talk about archery and TBOF!
1. Our next event is our Fall Rendezvous on August 4th -6th. Mark your calendar now. We are currently exploring a pre-registration option online so check back to make your check in faster.
2. Let us know if you want to start receiving newsletters from TBOF again.
3. We have our Board meeting on the 4thth at 6:00PM. We have interesting topics to discuss about the future direction of TBOF ! Please consider volunteering.
In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me.
In an effort to preserve messages from past presidents, we included this past post.
I hope everyone is doing well and having a great hunting season. I did some social distancing in some of my local WMA’s and had some close encounters with some smaller bucks and does but never took a shot, but there’s still some time left. Good luck to those of you still getting after them.
The dates for our shoots are as follows. The Charity Shoot will be on January 23 at Canyons Zip Line & Canopy Tours. There will be a workday on the 22nd to set up the course. The TBOF State Championship will be held on March 5th-7th with a workday on the 4th. And the Fall Rendezvous will be held August 12th-14th with a workday on the 11th. Both the State Championship and the Rendezvous will be held at the FWC Conservation Center in Silver Springs.
Everyone, please stay safe and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I look forward to seeing everyone again here shortly.
All the best,
