UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Orange and Blue Archery Club hosted Alpha Zeta for an archery lesson before their club practice. A team member Lauren taught the group the proper techniques of how to hold a bow and the arrow and equipment for shooting arrows. There was a great turnout for Alpha Zeta and all of the members had a great time! After overcoming the difficulty of the wind, members were able to shoot at foam targets, and several members came close while others did in fact hit the bulls eye. Members were able to learn about the challenges of tournament play and the different types of bows and arrows required for the sport. It was a great experience to join up with another UF club and a fun day outdoors!

The Florida Chapter started its Spring intramurals in beach volleyball with a victory! Members will meet every Sunday at the outdoor volleyball courts for the games this season. With the temperatures running in the 40s on the night of our first game, the team members tried very hard to stay warm (we are from Florida remember)! We won the first set 21-15 and dominated again in the second set, winning 21-17. Samantha Sites led with some great serving and Ana Zegarra had a few nice dives!...

The Florida Chapter had its second intramural sand volleyball game on Sunday. Although we would love to be out in the sunshine our time slot is at 7 PM. The members who showed up to play that night and were met by an impressive team that had played together since high school. Unfortunately, we had our first loss, but members showed great improvement upon the first game and are definitely looking forward to successive games. As for the game itself a few of our members served aces adding to our score!...

Terrace Recycles

Originally posted by Paola Luna

Terrace is near campus residential community. Alpha Zeta Puerto Rico helped in the voluntary project "Terrace Recycles” that brings together temporary collage students as well as permanent residences with the objective of a better community lifestyle and environment, by creating awareness of the contamination of the natural resources, water and air pollution. In this activity we promoted this project inside the campus by the distribution of flyers, orientation and with a shirt sale that encourages students to recycle that raised money for future activities. This was a tremendous opportunity to create conscious about the environment by promoting how and where to recycle. Also members helped promote Terrace’s eco-friendly workshops and educational activities like the "Recycling of Televisions” and "How to Re-Use” workshop.
