It's happening! The Zombie Apocalypse! OK, not really. But you can come find out if you are ready at our stand-alone "Zombies vs Archers" wargames!
Saturday, September 21st at 5:00pm, we will be hosting Zombies vs Archers at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, CA. See directions below. The event will cost $20 for anyone who would like to participate (Z-TAC recruits can participate at no cost) and will last approximately 2 hours. You will get to be both an archer and a zombie! Bring as many friends as you like; any minors MUST be accompanied by an adult.
We will provide bows, arrows, flags, blinds, and face masks. Arm guards and finger tabs or shooting gloves are optional; you will need to provide your own if you want them. Be sure to bring lots of water to drink! We recommend wearing closed-toe shoes and pants; shorts and open-toed shoes tend to leave participants itchy from the grass and can cause scrapes and such from the occasional slip and fall.
COST: $20 per participant
WHEN: Saturday, 9/21/13 at 5:00pm
Where: Woodley Park - 6350 Woodley Ave, Van Nuys, CA 91406 (at the end of the driveway in the last parking area)

From the North
Take the 5 south to the 405 south. Take the 405 south and exit at the Victory off ramp. Turn left at the bottom of the ramp and follow the road south to Victory. Turn right on Victory and go west to Woodley. Turn left and go south until you see the signs for the water treatment plant, the Wildlife Refuge and the Japanese Gardens on the left. Turn left into the park and stay to the right at the fork. Follow the road all the way, past the park and the cricket fields, until you reach the traffic circle around a big tree. Continue straight past the traffic circle to the last parking area. We will be just off the parking area in a depression in the field closest to the freeway. See the red star on the image below.

The first Z-TAC - Basic Training was a hit, especially Zombies vs Archers! The recruits loved the exciting, fact-paced head-to-head combat that Zombies vs Archers brought to the field Check out this video preview to see a first-person POV from my helmet cam.
Zombies vs Archers game-play is open to the public for a small fee; stay tuned for announcements for the next Zombies vs Archers coming mid September, and to the dates for registration for the next Z-TAC - Basic training coming in October!!!
Gina Davis shot a skit for Funny or Die at the Woodley Park Archery Range a while back and it is now available on Funny or Die! It was great to see her shoot in person, and I am happy to see the skit online with many great votes.

Here is the deal: $10 gets you into the Zombies vs Archers part! That is 60-90 minutes of combat archery! You will have the opportunity to be both a zombie and an archer. Zombies try to turn archers into zombies, and archers run and shoot for their lives! Will you survive Zombies vs Archers?
Zombies vs Archers starts at 1:30pm. We provide the bows, the face masks, and safe foam padded combat arrows. Optional body armor is not provided. Without body-armor, Z-TAC impacts hurt WAY LESS than paintball. 🙂 Of course, if you have your own body-armor, feel free to bring it, or you can purchase some at Critical Paintball in Northridge; be sure to mention Z-TAC!!!
The cost is $10 for Zombies vs Archers, arrive a little before 1:20pm. If you would like to volunteer to be a zombie target for the LIVE drills (be shot at with foam arrowheads) you will get a 50% discount for Zombies vs Archers!!! You have to arrive at 11:50am for this discount.

Thanks to Z-TAC recruit Janina Overly, we have our first preview video of the Zombie Tactical Archery Corps! The Blinds and Corners drill is one of the many drills and skills practiced during Z-TAC - Basic Training. Z-TAC (Zombie Tactical Archery Corps) combines archery with exercise, tactical drills and skills, trick shooting, and head-to-head Zombies vs Archers combat!
Without further ado, here is the Z-TAC Preview: Blinds and Corners!
I'd like to welcome all the newcomers to the Rolling Targets competition! Recently, Rolling Targets has grown in the number of attendees. Our numbers have fluctuated over the last year, but the cor group has slowly increased in size. This last weekend we had an impressive five newcomers, and I am sure that most of them will continue to come on a regular basis!
Rolling Targets helps individuals learn how to quickly acquire a target, how to lead a moving target, and how to shoot quickly with accuracy. These skills are useful in hunting scenarios, but the speed target acquisition skill is useful in all forms of archery, including target archery.
If you would like a new challenge, come do some Rolling Targets with us! We practice every Sunday at 3pm at the Woodley Park Archery Range in Van Nuys, CA. We start prompt, so get there a little early!
This last weekend we hosted Day Two of the Z-TAC - Basic Training program. Skills from the previous day were reviewed and new skills and drills were introduced. The recruits has some serious fun!
Combining exercise, tactical drills, archery, and zombie targets, Zombie Tactical Archery Corps (Z-TAC) adds more fun and excitement to archery. Keep an eye out for our next Z-TAC - Basic Training session in October! Enlistment opportunities will open up soon. In the meantime, be sure to "Like" us on Facebook, keep conversations alive, and stay tuned for more information!
It's official, the Zombie Tactical Archery Corps now has a Facebook page! Check us out and like us at http://www.facebook.com/zombietacticalarcherycorps today! Get your friends to like us too!
We will announce contests and other fun information from time to time on the Facebook page, as well as post photos and updates on schedules and events. It is a great way to stay in touch!
What is Z-TAC? Zombie Tactical Archery Corps (Z-TAC) combines archery with exercise, tactical drills, and exciting head-to-head combat with Zombies vs Archers!
I love archery. Unfortunately, it is a relatively stationary sport unless you do ground stalking-based hunting. To add back some physical fitness into archery, I have combined trick shooting, tactical drills, physical exercise, and heart-pumping head-to-head "Zombies vs Archers" combat rounds! For a more detailed description of what Z-TAC - Basic Training offers, visit http://robertsonarchery.com/z-tac/ today!
We are already in our first session, but fear not! You can register to become a Z-TAC recruit for our October session! Registration will open soon, so stay tuned!
