Sherwood Archers Bring Passion to Sport

Posted: Updated:

      In today's modern world sport and competition come  in many forms. But a number of people in our area enjoy their competition with a bit nostalgia--they are archers.  The folks at Sherwood Archers in Roanoke are a part of those select few, and with every draw of their bow a page in history seems to be turned back.   It is a page that President and Vice President of the club Roy Forehand and John Scyphers can't seem to turn fast enough.  

  And that tradition is being passed down. John's eight year-old grandson Jake Threewitts has had a bow in his hand since he was three years old. And by the looks of it--the kid is pretty good.  And there is plenty of room to practice.  Sherwood Archers sits on 89 acres in Roanoke county off of Timberview road. The sport draws both men and women of all ages. Patience is the key… and if you don't have it--it will teach you the valuable life skill.   And if you need some advice…. Well young Jake has you covered to--he says to ask his Grandpa, because his Grandpa..is pretty good. Sherwood Archers is a public club, so anyone is welcome and members are willing to teach if you are willing to learn.
