August 18, 2019


FIRST EVER LAND-BASED TOURNAMENT FOR SCHOOLS PARTICIPATING IN THE CALIFORNIA STATE ARCHERY PROGRAM. NOW, NA IS HERE. HEY, NA. THAT’S, GUYS. I’M SO GLAD YOU SAID. I’M TERRIBLE WITH ACRONYMS. I’M GLAD THAT CODY GOT IT ALL IN THERE. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT ORGANIZATION HAS DONE A LAND- BASED TOURNAMENT. THE TOURNAMENT ONLINE IS WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. THEY THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE THE KIDS THE SKILLS THEY NEED TO WIN THIS COMPETITION, PARTICULARLY THE LEVEL OF STUFF GOING ON. I WANT TO CHAT WITH LISA. SHE RAN OFF. SHE’S ACTUALLY THE COORDINATOR OF THIS EVENT. SHE SPEARHEADED ALL OF IT TO HAPPEN RIGHT HERE. WE WILL GET TO HER IN JUST A SECOND. LET’S SEE IF I CAN SNAG SOME OF THESE KIDS AND SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE PARTICIPATING. I DON’T THINK SHE IS READY FOR ME BUT I TALKED TO HER EARLIER. I’M ANNA. WHERE ARE YOU COMING FROM? VALLEY SPRINGS? HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING ARCHERY AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO THE SNORT. I DON’T KNOW. WHEN I WAS EIGHT YEARS. MY DAD INTRODUCED ME. HE LOVES IT. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU ENJOY ABOUT IT? I DON’T KNOW. I THINK IT’S JUST FUN. JUST THE ARROWS. WE ARE TOLD THAT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THEY PURCHASED SOMETHING LIKE THIS. JUST THE COMPETITION. GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

THIS IS A PROGRAM THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE HOSTS. WE ARE VERY PROUD OF THAT. I’M THE COORDINATOR OF. THAT THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN GOING FOR ABOUT 11 YEARS. IN THE PAST, WE HAVE DONE TOURNAMENTS. BUT WE DECIDED TO DO THE REAL THING. NOTHING LIKE THE TRUE COMPETITION FORMAT TO ALLOW THESE KIDS TO SHOWCASE THEIR TOURNAMENT. Reporter: THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE HERE. I WONDERED, THERE ARE A LOT OF KIDS THAT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAMS. THAT’S RIGHT. THERE ARE MANY SCHOOLS, AS MANY AS 150 SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT STATE. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS OF STUDENTS THAT GO THROUGH P.E. CLASSES AND TAKE ARCHERY LESSONS BECAUSE, ESSENTIALLY, WHAT WE DO, WE TRAIN P.E. TEACHERS TO DELIVER A TWO-WEEK ARCHERY UNIT TO THEIR STUDENTS. THE POTENTIAL FOR THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS TO BE ALLOWED THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT ARCHERY IS THERE. I’M SURE THAT EVERYBODY WOULD LOVE FOR FOLKS TO COME OUT AND SUPPORT THEM. ARE THEY ABLE TO COME OUT IN PUBLIC? ANYBODY WELCOME TO COME OUT AND CHECK THE COMPETITION OUT? ANYBODY. COME OUT AND COME ALL. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU. THINGS DON’T START OFFICIALLY UNTIL 10:00. THAT’S WHEN THE FIRST COMPETITOR WILL COME OUT HERE. COME ON DOWN AND ENCOURAGE THE
