New to the forum. My sons and I have been shooting traditional for several years and now we want to try our hand at building a bow. We are planning on coming to OJAM in 2014. I have friends that have been before, just need some help in even getting ready to go. Staves..? what kind? where do you get them? have I got time before OJAM? Tools? Does is cost money to go to OJAM? Sorry for what seem like stupid questions. but gotta find out somewhere.

Ojam is free we do have fund raisers during the weekend. Jerry Stover in Yukon usually has staves available and we normally have 2-3 other vendors selling staves including Jerry. Some come on out and join the family. Alex

Marsport, we do ask you to join the Oklahoma Selfbow Society to build a bow. I believe an individual membership is $20 or family membership at $30. You can look in the OJAM subforum in the Oklahoma Selfbow Society forum for a list of tools you can start gathering before OJAM. We would love to have you come and will do everything we can to help you build a bow.
You might want to introduce yourself in the New Members forum, also.
