Who's a good instructor? What's a good place to shop for my bow and stuff? Where can I go to practice?
The answers are, uh, nuanced. That is to say, if you ask your question to a group of Toronto archers, you're gonna get a barrage of opinions and experiences. Now, if you're in a group like the E.T. Seton Folk these questions come up majorly often. Scrolling past all of our chatter, though, makes it a trick to dig out those nuggets.
Clever Shaun de Jager took his cue from this. He's crafted an admirable repository for all our wisdom. All our local wisdom, at that. Archery Folk of Ontario is a forum for us, kids. The tech and technique bits you could get from world-wide websites, sure, but it's nicer to talk it out with folks you're likely to be standing next to on the line. The stuff about local resources is gold.
Shaun - well, he's a local resource and he's gold. If you're at E.T. Seton, he probably is, too. (You'll know by the wicked motorcycle avec sidecar.) He's already a gem at passing on wisdom. His scion, Liam, is always with him, apprenticing with his own compound bow. Shaun's a pro web-slinger, so he was just the guy to set this schtick up. I love how everybody has a piece to add to our community.
Now it's your turn: Don't let your smarts fester in your head. Get to the forum and share!
