this is indeed the group that holds tournaments at the cricket field.

Non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and protecting all aspects of archery in Minnesota. Founded in 1946 to work with bowhunters in achieving more opportunities for the sport through legislative action, education, and conservation projects.
They will tell you the name of the club(s) closest to you, who to contact at that club, and the phone number and address of the club(s). They should also be a good source for beginner information, tournament schedule information, NAA membership/eligibility, and of course the US Archer. Obviously, they can also supply the Philadephia Archery Club information above that I could not. Finally, I would imagine they should be able to supply some information about clubs in at least Canada, if not England.
Ruth Rowe, president
Those of you who are a little older will recognize the name. Ruth was on the 1984 US Olympic team and was the US Women's National Champion a number of times in the late 70's and early 80's. Most recently she won the US Indoor Archery Championships in March(?). She also does a bit of coaching. Quintessential Corp. has a video tape called "The Basics (Fundamentals) of Shooting". I have not seen this video, but I am told that it presents the fundamental aspects of "good" shooting (as the title implies) and it shows what is considered to be "good form". I believe Ruth is featured in most of the shooting. The video is recommended (by my friend) not only for beginners, but also for those who wish to sharpen their skills.
I'm sorry my description is vague, but I simply cannot comment on it since I haven't seen it myself. Perhaps if someone else has seen it we could hear his/her comments on the video. It can be gotten from Quintessential for $25 + $4 shipping.

Kinko Kyudojo is part of the Chikurin-ha branch of the Heki-ryu school of Kyudo under the guidance of Kanjuro Shibata XX. Shibata Sensei, a twentieth generation kyudo master and the official bow maker to the Emperor of Japan, has been teaching in the West for 14 years. His principal Western student, Don Symanski, is the head instructor of the Ryuko Kyudojo in Boulder, Colorado and spent two years in Japan learning the art of bowmaking from the Shibata family. This class is open to all, including beginning students who have never held a bow to experienced students who have had several years of practice.Kinko Kyudojo

Subject: Archery Clubs in Quebec Canada
If anyone is looking for a place to shoot in the Provience of Quebec, they can drop me a line at my e-mail address. There are a few FITA clubs around but most clubs are going more to the 3-D aspect of archery. We have a very busy outdoor schedule here as well as a very complete indoor schedule. There are tournaments just about every weekend throughout the year. The Quebec Federation is now operating under modified ASA rules. Max 280fps speed limit, binos allowed but stabs over 12" are restricted to the Open class. Max target distance 45m. If I can be of any help please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
