Welcome to Nowhere Archery. Please tour the site for some perspective on our approach to the art including our method of instruction; note the course offerings then refer to the calendar for scheduling. If you’re new to the art, you can be confident that we’ll have a good bow strung for you.
Once again, due to the blessed rain, our Spring Archery Tournament has been moved to Saturday, June 15th, and although participation is invitational, we welcome visitors and guests who’d like to watch the “rare birds” fly to the elusive Mark as archers vie for the Prize. As for our teaching schedule, the 2019 season is well underway––new courses & ongoing events. If you’re interested, we’re offering course certificates for gifting: Trading Post & archery gear to take pride in: Shire’s Guild.
Draco has raised his stellar head over the evening sky, while Whip-or-wills hurl their haunting voices into the dark––we came here to hear them. Green Anoles, our small Shire Dragons, have been patrolling for food and combative love––as is their way––while Dragonflies patrol the spring air. Hawk Red-Shoulder has chicks to feed, Pileated Woodpecker has found a new drum and Yellow-Billed Coo-Coo is beside himself waiting for the Catalpa tree to bear its parasitic fruit––the crawling kind. May ripens with the Mulberry, a fruit that gets all the attention. Come and see; taste for yourself.
We were blown away with the good fortune of having 3 generations of female archers in one March class as well as a potent sisterhood of elders––girl-power on the Spring range! Our April beginner’s course starts on the 28th; our May course on the 26th. Its a transformative time to be on the archer’s Green, even in––perhaps especially in––your Wellington Boots.
Looking ahead to the summer, we’re hosting 2 youth camps for ages 9 to 15. Archery centered, but embracing a full spectrum of adventurous activity, we’re confident that these archers & campers will get a full measure of the summertime wonders of the Shire.

As always, family and group courses can be arranged upon request, while private lessons can be scheduled to suit both interest and experience. Young, old or wherever you fall in the spectrum of age or ability, if you’re inclined to bend-a-bow, we’ll reserve a place on the range for you.
♦◊♦ As many of our archery students know, we teach in partnership with the land which is beloved to us; its a comprehensive and dynamic presence which informs our class time in surprising and profound ways. The reality of this place, this circumstance, has moved Jonathan and me to offer our younger students an immersive after-school course in Roving Archery and land studies––a nexus of eyesight and insight, hand and heart, inspiration and art––a wintertime springboard into the Beloved Land. Follow the link for details and feel free to contact us for more information: WinterRovers.
Jonathan and I hope to see you here very soon.
Endless gratitude extends to our young friends at Double Helix School, who’ve offered insightful time and their own beloved range to explore the wonders and mystique of archery––Rovers each and all! Rovers: A Tribute
