Location – Twelfth Precinct Archers – 1:00pm

(See the archery guide for directions)


    If you cannot attend the semi annual MAA Board meeting at Twelfth Precinct Archers, you can email ( or fax (703) 476-1755), your clubs official response to these agenda items to the MAA President, Colleen McGowan. They will be given to an MAA officer who will serve as your club’s representative. Please note that they will only be able to vote as you direct them in your correspondence.

From: Larry Worrill – Graphics MAA Guide

To All Club Representatives:


I would like to downsize the Archery Guide to a manageable Size. By reducing the Guide to approximately 60 pages would reduce the cost of printing. We could saddle stitch the Archery Guides and save money. The Printer we use has to send out our Archery Guide to another company to have them spiral bound.


I would like to put all the pages now in the Archery Guide that we do not print on the MAA web site. Example the Record pages, this information changes little and we do not need the info immediately.


If everyone would look through the Archery Guide and see what pages you use and need through out the year. Think about it and let us have a quick discussion at the meeting on 11 Nov.  I will bring a sample to the meeting.
