    Default What I Love About Archery--Natalie Halterman

    Fellows, I'd like to introduce you to Natalie Halterman, a 10 yr old that I've been coaching a little less than 1 year. Her first indoor league Vegas round ended with a score of 265. She has, with my guidance, improved to where her average score is now around 510. However, this isn't about me. It's about her. She is so easy to teach and I just adore her like my own grandkids. Recently I rewarded her with new threads on her Razor Edge, compliments of our own Bill Hutcheson (Bowstring Depot). Pink & Purple. I believe the smile on her face says it all. Second pic is her best, but not last best shooting results. Thankyou Hutch.

    So this is primarily what archery has evolved into for me. Nat gives me purpose, a reason to keep on breathing. She brings joy to my life.
