Your participation is required, yes required. The Board needs input from the community and as such has a number of open position for representatives for all segments of the archery community. Not much is asked from these representatives, just share your passion with the Members of the Board, tell them what you’d like to see for your community. C’mon, we know you like to talk about it.

Tournament Cancellation

The SAAM Board of Directors made the difficult decision at its January meeting to not host the annual USA Archery Indoor National Championship and the 2021 JOAD National Championship because of the State mandated restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Board recognizes that this decision will disappoint many archers and apologizes for this. The Board will attempt to schedule the 2021 State Indoors and JOAD Championships later this year once restrictions are lifted and the health crisis permits a return to larger indoor gatherings. Again please accept the Board’s apologies for canceling this event. Stay healthy.

The archery community lost a young archer recently, Nathan Kilpatrick passed away on February 24.

SAAM would like to express their sincere condolences to the Kilpatrick family and to the
Riverside Archers.

The archery family of Massachusetts and New England lost a dear friend this week.
We are deeply saddened to share with you that Lucy Tabit passed away on June 15th
from complications from cancer treatment.

Lucy was an archery mom, a coach, a USA Archery National Judge and a former member
of the SAAM Board of Directors. We offer our deepest condolences to her daughter Hana
and husband Richard, and know that we are thinking of you in this most difficult time.
