I am pleased to announce the 2019 TAS Honoree!

Mr. Larry Hatfield

Larry Hatfield started his career as a weekend bowyer in 1963. A few years later Larry took over the management of Damon Howatt and continued into management after Martin Archery acquired Damon Howatt. In Flight Archery, Larry Hatfield has held several records. The latest was from a bow he built the Martin Vision longbow. Larry shot an arrow out of his 35# longbow sending it 340 yards, 0 feet, and 8 inches for a new world record!

All the credit for inducting Larry Hatfield as our 2019 honoree goes to all of our members. I just posted the announcement for nominations on the TAS website, Facebook, and Instagram pages. Larry Hatfield received more nominations than any other nominee.

Thanks, Fred, and everyone else. Have to correct my history a bit though. I started full time at Howatts in January, 1961. Did work off and on in 1960. 52 years at Howatts. Honored to be in the company of many people I admire and have learned from, that have been named in the past!
Thanks to all of you! Your efforts have helped grow archery across the world!

WoW!  It is awesome to see people who have literally, made archery what it is today, get a little of the recognition they have earned.  [smile]

 I miss his insights on the old politics board too.  [cool]
