July, 2018

Greetings reader!

It has been many a year since WPA has had a functioning newsletter, but it is now time to change that! Although we have been relying on fairly regular Facebook shares to reach out, we realize that not everyone is on Facebook. We plan to get something out in this email-based newsletter once a month or once every other month, so stay tuned.

It has been a great year at WPA so far! we had a little flood recently, possibly due to sprinklers going haywire, but it seems to be taken care of for now. Archers still came out and shot around and through the water; a die-hard bunch we are!

Speaking of die-hards, we are aware of the issue of the irregular bales on the long range and the problems they are causing. We are checking to see if we can get the old bale size again. However, in the meantime we have a plan to rectify the situation in the short term. We will be organizing a work party in the next month or so and we will need several heavy-lifting volunteers to make our plan happen. Once we have a date we will put out a call for volunteers. We hope you can help out!
