We’re also preparing for round two of … Continue reading Resolution – MORE ARCHERY!
This past Wednesday Trojan Archery deviated slightly from its longstanding Halloween tradition of pumpkin carving and monster hunting, opting instead for a more nuanced approach of shooting games and a costume contest.

This was an opportunity for our members to check their growth and … Continue reading The First Pin’s the Sweetest

This past Friday, Trojan Archery continued a long-running tradition of the club and hosted our annual pumpkin carving and monster shoot. Our members took off the kid gloves and took down some monsters. They then threw down even more … Continue reading It’s the Great Pumpkin, Captain Max!
