Alabama Holds First State Archery Championship
« on: May 22, 2004, 10:13:12 PM »
MILLBROOK, AL--More than 200 students representing 11 schools participated in Alabama's first annual "National Archery in the Schools Program" championship on April 29. The event, held at the Alabama Wildlife Federation headquarters, featured three-person teams competing in Elementary (grades K-6), Middle (grades 7-8) and High School (grades 9-12) divisions. Students shot 30 arrows during the competition, 15 each from distances of 10 and 15 meters.
Alabama is the second state to implement the program, which is patterned after Kentucky's "National Archery in the Schools Program." Sixteen schools (two from each of the state's Board of Education districts) were chosen for the pilot program in 2003. The program is a partnership between the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries and the State Department of Education. It's being taught in 25 Alabama schools as part of their physical education program. Officials say more schools have plans to implement the program.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
