George Ryals Workshop is coming to NZ
GRIV's Archery Workshops are tailored for intermediate to advanced shooters looking to raise their level of archery to a new plane.
In GRIV's workshop you'll have full access to everything he knows for 2 & 1/2 days. At the start he encourages the participants to fully participate and discuss archery while he uses a keynote presentation as a place holder for the discussion. GRIV knows that the more involvement you put into the class, the more you'll learn. If you just sit and listen, you'll learn some cool stuff. However, if you ask questions, discuss, and bend the conversation deeper into each topic, you'll come away with a whole new understanding that you otherwise wouldn't get.
Many people won't bat an eye at spending $1800 on a new bow. Spending a small portion of that on your archery education will do a tremendous amount more for your scores than that new bow will.

The worksho[ is limited to just 20 people. If you'd like to nail your spot, give Carol or Kevin a call 09 6366359 or Carol 021 638840. Usually to take part in a GRIV workshop you'd be up for the cost of an airfare to the U.S, accomodation, expenses + the course fee, so a t least $4000 per person. The course fee here will be just a fraction of that at just $650. You confirm your place on the course for a $350 deposit and you'll have made an awesome investment in your archery. Fist in first serve, so get on it!
A little bit about George:
George Ryals is also known out on the range as GRIV. That name comes from his Martin Archery days. Working as a product designer and advertising director at Martin, GRIV was instrumental is creating ArcheryTalk.com. His Internet handle morphed from GDRyalsIV to GRIV. ArcheryTalk was started in the hopes of helping archers around the world by putting information out for everyone to use. GRIV believes today that ArcheryTalk has been a large part of pushing archery up to where it is today.

During his time at Martin Archery his designs were winners across target 3D and indoor archery.
After his time with Martin Archery GRIV moved on to work with Copper John and Stanislawski Archery products.

His work is still visible in their releases today.
Now GRIV runs a small pro-shop in Snellville, GA with a focus on target and recreational archery. He is Head Coach of the Hornets, the archery team that has grown out of his JOAD archery program.
