To La Crosse Archery

LaCrosse Archery is in Onalaska (?) at 1212 Oak Forest Drive. They have two ranges – 20 and 30 yards. Some of the target holders eat arrows, so don’t bring your best ones. Though SCA archery requires wooden shafts and feather fletching, we will not be that restrictive, since part of this gathering is to have fun and get together. Gavin or Kudrun can explain basics of SCA archery.
