Learn the fundamentals of archery during a youth program 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at the Cashiers/Glenville Recreation Center. 

This program will be taught by former Level 2 USA Archery Instructors and closely follow USA Archery guidelines, rules and curriculum. Each archer will have the choice between using a compound bow or a re-curve. All equipment is provided. 

However, in the meantime the range is closed for updates. Once it reopens, people using the range must check in at the Cullowhee Recreation Center first. Only target points are permitted on arrows and bolts. Sky drawing and shooting are prohibited, and cameras have been installed to monitor shooting activities.

The program is open to ages 10-14 and limited to eight participants. The fee is $10. Register at
