    Default Even the Mighty will fall -tribute to Fletchers

    For the past two years Scott and Jill Crinklaw, Amy and Jyllian Neuharth, Colleen Peterson and Judy Vanderwilt have tried to keep the economy cancer at bay however after a courageous battle they too have lost the fight


    Fletchers Archery has been a long-standing icon for the Archery Community. Spanning over 20years, Barb and Jerry Fletcher First opened the shop giving archers a place to shoot, purchase the new archery product and meet fellow people with the same tastes and goals for the hunting community. When Jerry “left the building” in the spring of 2006 many people were leery of the young guy taking over. Many times in the first few months you would hear; “that’s not how Barb and Jerry would do it”. However Scott knew what he was doing and with a little enthusiasm and a lot of harassment he would either fix the bow or the shooter.



    While Scott and Jill owned the shop many thing changed they came out of the stone age and started using computers, a woman’s league was started and toys were brought in so dads and moms could bring their kids in to play while they would shoot making it a more family oriented sport. More times then not it was the kids not the adults bellied up to the bar eating a cookie from cookie Thursday talking to Mr. Scott about their many hunting adventures in Africa or up the Haul Road.

    Fletchers had become a family. Where each person that came in was treated like a distant relative coming home and for that we would like to thank you, our customer for being our counselor, our teacher, our guide, our strength and most importantly we would like to Thank You for just being there.

    You guys will certainly be missed. My mad dashes from Valdez to get by BowTech tuned by someone that knew what they were doing. You guys were certainly a great place to go to. Hopefully you may be back.

    Either way, best of luck.
