Group Name: rec.sport.archery Status: Unmoderated Distribution: Worldwide Summary: All aspects of archery for archers of any skill level Proposed by: Bill Blohm <email@example.com>
This is a discussion group for all aspects of archery. Welcome articles include traditional, compound, primitive archery, bow hunting and fishing, kyudo archery, discussions on bows, arrows, and other archery gear, advice and help for beginners, making your own archery equipment, historical and archeological archery topics, shooting tips, books, and anything that in some way deals with archery, bows and arrows, and related topics. This list is by no means exhaustive and only serves as a guide. Pointers to archery organizations and announcements of competitions or discussions of competitions or rules are welcome, too. Anyone with any interest in archery is free to post.
Advertisements should be limited to private, non-commercial selling/buying of personal archery equipment or services. Commercial advertising is discouraged, but will be tolerated under these circumstances:
Archery is already discussed to some extent in rec.org.sca, rec.hunting and rec.sport.olympics, for example. But these groups are not dedicated to archery. alt.archery has been around for several years now, with a constant flow of traffic. I have only seen one day when there were no postings at all, and that was due to a server error. alt.archery currently averages 20 to 30 messages per day. Sometimes there are less, sometimes there are way more, it's almost seasonal.
The rec.sport.archery group is intended as a more widespread forum for such discussions as currently take place in the
existing newsgroup alt.archery. More and more alt groups are being dropped from the locations where many of our regulars
This is a section of the FAQ for
alt.archery. It is maintained by Nobody right now.
Comments, flames, etc. on the FAQ are welcome and should be directed to The newsgroup rec.sport.archery.
Comments on the specifics of the section should go to
the person responsible for this section. If you wish to see this section
cross-posted to another group, please do that as you please.
(The FAQ is orphaned, so if you want to take charge of it, e-mail Simon Oosthoek
