Usually just about every third Sunday of the month (but check this thread to make sure something didn't come up that made us change the date) a bunch of folks get together at the Pasadena Roving Archers' range, in Pasadena, Ca. We generally gather at the tables under the trees just across the bridge across the aqueduct from the parking lot. If you get lost and find the practice butts, we are at the next set of tables and targets up the arroyo, maybe sixty yards.
A lot of people generally work on bows, but there are also other primitive skills being practiced from time to time, including flintknapping, atlatls, arrow making, wood carving, beading, and other handicrafts. From time to time we'll have an official atlatl competition (ISAC); but all in all it is very informal and unstructured. People generally show any time after about 9am, and at any time during the day. During summer, folks usually start leaving when it's time for dinner. During winter, before sunset (the range closes at sunset).
Many people have made their first bow at these get-togethers, with the help of whoever is in the mood. If you'd like to try your hand at making a bow, you might like to sign in here and let us know you are coming, so we can bring a red oak board for you to work on. Or, you can find out on this forum how to select a red oak board, and bring your own.
We'll be updating this thread every month as to the exact date (there is often some discussion of who will be coming, and occasionally we change the date if there is a conflict with a range or city event). If you go to Past Events here on PaleoPlanet, you can look at old Pasadena threads to see what to expect. I suppose we can post links here to new photo threads after each event.
