Update to Troop 3480 Archery Workshop

The Archery workshop for Juniors, Cadettes and Seniors is still on this Saturday, but Sr. Yasmine wants to make sure the girls come prepared:

  1. Wear sneakers, ankle boots or other comfortable and supportive footwear because we plan to be shooting on the grass,
  2. There are no restroom facilities at the Adelphi Manor Archery Range. Take care of that before you come!
  3. Bring a completed permission form (if she hasn’t turned it in already),
  4. Wear the Girl Scout vest and/or pin only. Girls do not have to wear the full uniform.
  5. Come prepared to aim for the center of the target!
