Club member Marcus Vesprini rolls a barrel, the back of the target, up the stairs to the gym before practice.
Before every practice, the archers have to set up the barrels and targets in the Hawley Armory, where they practice.
Archers preparing to shoot at their respective targets. When everyone is done shooting they get a clear signal to go pick up their arrows.
Club member Joshua Podgorski is focusing on the target as he gets ready to release the arrow. It takes a lot of concentration to steady the bow and get the arrow on target.
The archers are required to stay on or behind the blue tape, which is 20 meters away from the targets. After everyone has their turns with the targets, they all retrieve their arrows.

The sport of archery requires dedication and patience. The club encourages people interested in archery to join. Practices are held inside the Hawley Armory during the fall semester and will move outside during the warmer weather.
