Shoot Straight Men's Retreat

Shoot Straight is all about men getting away for a weekend to relax, be spiritually encouraged, and shoot some bows and arrows. Campfires, home cooked meals, good conversations, and belly laughs are strung throughout the weekend with a 3D Archery tournament being the main attraction.
