Fundraising

Thank you to all of you who supported our recent Fundraiser in July to offset some of the costs of attending the 133rd US Outdoor Nationals and US Open in Indiana.  You made a genuine difference in the lives of 4 families and 5 archers.  Thank you also to Joe McGlyn and Tung Ying Chu for generously making Proline Archery Range available to us.

Above:  Folks at the fundraiser.  It was lots of fun and some got to try out archery.  Below:  Ryan, Eian, and Dallas shooting at the Nationals in Indiana.  And Dallas jon the podium after having taken Gold, Waylon who took Silver and Ben who took Bronze.

 

Winners all!!!!  Again thank you for your continued support.

The journey continues with lots of learning and achievements along the way…

Our archers are achieving success and having experiences they could not have had without our program.  They are growing and developing skills that will serve them well in life and in competition.  Through our program their lives are changed forever.

Every tournament has costs and as you might expect away tournaments present additional costs (hotel, food, travel, special outdoor equipment) and these costs are challenging to many of our families’ already stretched budgets.

Here is how you can help.

You can purchase one or more of our beautiful The Fine Art of Archery T-Shirts (see images below) for just $22.00 plus shipping.

Other colors available:  Black Shirt with Yellow Ink (shown), Yellow shirt with Black Ink; White Shirt with Red Ink; and Blue Shirt with Yellow Ink.

OR you can make a gift or sponsor an archer.

If you are interested in supporting us or want more information about our program, please email Coach Larry Brown ancestralbeads@aol.com or Roberta Jones rfurtick@optonline.net.

Please note that we are on our way but do not yet have our  501c3.  Consequently donations are not tax deductible at this time.

Cheryl Blue Award 2

In 2012 through the generosity of the Cheryl Blue Foundation, Enrique Perez was awarded the first Coach Larry Brown Legacy Award for “Consistently exhibiting the principles of persistence, dignity,

dedication, hard work, and self-respect that are fostered by Coach Brown’s Archery Training Program.”

An additional 4 other young archers were given gift certificates redeemable for archery equipment.  We are very grateful to Ms. Blue.

Thank you for coming to our website. We welcome your questions or comments about Center Shot Archers.

    Hello, my 13 year old son & I are taking up archery as a hobby and we have plans to compete in 3D should everything go as planed. As African Americans in the Buffalo, NY area – there aren’t many known Brothers (or Sisters) that shoot here so needless to say , this has been an interesting endeavor . I learned of the Center Shot Archery Club a while ago and have had only the website to follow the clubs activities. However, I’d like to purchase a couple of your t-shirt’s if possible.

    • Hello David. Thank you for your support. You’re correct there are not many African American or Latino archers. Glad to hear that you and your son are involved in an activity together. That says a lot for both of you. We do have shirts for sale. Please send your sizes to rfurtick@optonline.net and we will get them out to you as soon as possible. Look us up if you are in Brooklyn one Saturday. Be well.
