Ponte Alto now has a regular archery practice.  It is Tuesday nights 
starting at 6:00 PM, at the Fort Belvoir Archery Range.  Contact our 
Archery Marshall, Feline, for further information.

My lady and I have been very pleased with Wizard Archery for mail-order, 
but it's probably a bit on the expensive side for a beginner.  ($65/dozen 
arrows, but they're gorgeous and great!)
