So yeah. This thing hasn't been updated in a while. The reasoning for this is twofold:
1) People don't really look at this thing when I do update it, and
2) I've gotten real lazy over the past year.
Therefore, while I will make sure the Contact Info and About pages stay up to date, for any official club announcements, please follow us on Facebook. All the Facebook updates are public, so you do not even need to have a Facebook account to see them, just bookmark the link and check every so often.
Welcome back to the new school year! I hope everyone had a good and restful summer. Some thing of note:
1) There is an activities fair from 6-9PM on Thursday this in armory. Please come for some or all of the time to help promote RPI Archery.
2) There is an outdoor 3D shoot at Green Island Rod and Gun Club on Sunday 18th September. Cost is $10 per person. Please email Matt if you want to go for head counting purposes. If you have a car and are willing to drive, that is a plus.
3) There is no regular meeting on Thursday this due to aforementioned activities fair. Our next regular meeting is on Tuesday next.
RPI archery has been up to some cool stuff lately. Elections for

Welcome back everyone to spring term! I hope everyone had a restful
holiday. There's some neat stuff happening this term. First of all, Chris has
asked me to share this blurb from the Union annual report. Your club dues at work:
"The RPI Archery Club was able to utilize Union funds to upgrade its range with a new net, which has improved the shooting experience and safety at the range. The club also hired a coach for the first time to mentor aspiring archers."
Also, there is a sort of tournement shooting thing going on at the Guan Ho Ha Rod and Gun Club on the weekend of Feburary 4th - 6th. Please e-mail Chris if you wish to attend. If we get five people to go, we can compete together as a club.
Our first official meeting will be on Tuesday, 25th January. 7-9 PM, basement of the armory.
To all our new members, welcome! And to all our returning members, welcome back!
Hope everybody's classes are going well this term. The Archery Club is in full swing now,
with meetings every Tuesday and Thursday from 7-9 in the basement of the armory. If you have not
paid your $45 club dues yet, please speak to one of the officers the next time you are at a meeting.
Meanwhile, we got a ton of exciting events that are in the works for this semester! Stayed tuned to your e-mail and the website for more details as they become availible. If you are not receiving the archery e-mails, but would like to, please e-mail Chris and he will put you on the list.
If you have missed the first meetings of the semester, but still want to join Archery, it is not too late! We are always welcoming to new members; just come down to the range during regular meeting times. Our more experienced shooters will be more than happy to lend assistance to you if you have never shot before. We're generally pretty lenient about allowing people to try it out before we ask you to pay the club dues as well, so you can try out archery risk-free!
Lastly, if anyone has any archery related photos they would like to see on the website, including bowhunting photos, please e-mail them to me and I will add them!
I hope everybody is excited for the new semester of shooting. Our first meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, 31st August at 7PM. See you all soon!
Flying Arrow Sports in East Greenbush does a ton of stuff for us as a club and they are
a good option if you are looking to buy archery equipment. Click the banner above to check
out their website, or click on 'Arrowtrade' at right for an independent review that was published
in Arrowtrade Magazine.
Also, I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break. Keep shooting!
I hope everyone had a good semester and enjoyed the shooting. The
officers page has been updated with the officers for the 2010-2011 year.
The last official meeting of the semester will be Tuesday, 11th May. Several of us will be around the greater Albany area over the break and will try to shoot together. Let us know if you'll be around and want to get in on the fun.
If you have equipment in the closet that you need to get out for the summer, send one of the officers an e-mail.
I think that's everything. See you all next year. Keep shooting, my friends.
T-shirts finally arrived! They look pretty awesome, so make sure you come down to the range and get one! Even if oyu didn't order one, we have some extras floating around, cost is $10.
There will be a coaching session on this Saturday, please e-mail Chris if you want to attend, as we will need a headcount.
The T-shirts arrived, but the company screwed up. Fixed shirts should be arriving in about
a week or two, we hope.
In other news, hopefully everyone enjoyed the spring break. We will be shooting again Tuesday, 16th March.
Chris has informed me that the T-Shirts will finally be availible for pick-up after the spring
break. We should have a few extras, so if you didn't order one but still want one, we might be able
to hook you up.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 16th March. Enjoy the spring break, everyone!
Ghillie suit souce is offering an amazing deal to all members of RPI archery: 5% off your order on Ghillie Suit Source! Please e-mail one of the officers for the coupon code if you would like to take advantage of this.
I hope everyone had a good winter break. I apologize for the lack of updates over the break, as I was unable to access the union servers during that time. Our first meeting of the semester will be on Tuesday, 26th January, from 7-9 PM on the range in the basement of the armory.
The RPI Archery club is now an official member of the U.S. collegiate archery clubs!
I have added a page with potential designs for our club T-shirts. These designs are courtesy of Jacob Katz, please e-mail him at email@example.com with questions, comments, and complaints.
I have put some photos up that I took at last Thursday's meet. If anyone has any photos that they would like to see on the site, please e-mail me. I am trying to be consistent with bringing my camera to the meetings, so if you want to be in some of these photos, all you need come on down!
We now have a calendar of events, powered by Google Calendar. We will have photos shortly as well; I took some at our last meet; now I
just need to get my computer and camera in the same place so I can actually upload the photos. If you have any photos you would like to see on the site,
please e-mail me.
Our next meeting is tomorrow night, Tuesday, 3rd November, at 7 P.M.
We are up and running! So far most of the changes on the website have been server-side only. All the content is the same, besides the much
obvious layout change, the casual user will notice little difference. However, we are now powered by PHP! Oh, and we are XHTML strict complient as
well. There is some little text that pops up when you put your mouse over the links. As of now, all pages should be up, with the exception of the
equipment page, which should be up by the close of business hours today. Photos will be up in the near future, I will be creating a Picasa
gallery for the photos as well as a Google Calendar for our events. Look for these to come soon!
Our next meeting is tonight, Tuesday, 27th October, at 7 P.M. on the range, basement of Mueller Center.
Union's servers DO NOT like CGI, so I decided to rebuild in PHP. Would now be a bad time to mention that I don't know PHP?
