This past weekend was a fantastic getaway for the men who came to our 3rd annual Shoot Straight Archery Retreat! Archery is fun, but it’s mostly about encouragement and fellowship!
Friday night they had a taste of tomahawk throwing. The beautiful thing about everyone never having tried something is that it was fun even when most people were bad at it. Because it’s not so much about the amazing skills you do/don’t possess at this retreat, but about the togetherness: fun, laughter, camaraderie. One guy said, “I can’t remember the last time I just sat around and talked with other men.”
Saturday was the 3D tournament held in our wooded paintball course. The morning is for getting the hang of the bow; the afternoon is the tourney and 100 Yard Shoot! Can you believe someone actually hit the target?! Calculation or Luck? Who knows!
Of course the giveaways are a highlight for both kids and adults! They got some great prizes this year! Of course everyone leaves with goodies of some sort!
Encouragement from God’s Word, sitting around the fire talking, eating good food, hiking the woods with a bow and arrow. Argggggg. Fathers and sons enjoyed the time together, men without sons enjoyed time together with other men. It was a great weekend and we are so thankful for those God brought to this time.
MEN: Block out October 5-7 on your 2018 Calendar so you can come next year! DON’T MISS OUT! Like another guy said, “This was too easy — we gotta come again next year!”
