The two-day event will feature an exchange of Korean, Chinese and Japanese archery traditions, with hands-on practice, insightful lectures, fun contests and good company.

All skill levels are welcome, from beginners to experts.

Along with the host, who will showcase Korean archery, the exchange will feature instruction and lectures from Justin Ma in Chinese archery. Rick Beal, Marcus Bossett and Trinidad Campbell will talk about Japanese archery.

The event will be held at 29745 Lilac Road and will begin with registration and check-in at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. The registration fee for the event is $55 for one day and $75 for both days, but for those who register by Oct. 4, the cost is $40 for one day and $60 for both days. Registration includes participation, continental breakfast, lunch, and Saturday’s dinner.
