PGF Archery Opens Elizabeth City Storefront with Tournament and Practice Space for Children and Families

William "Bumper" Williams never imagined turning his life-long passion for archery into a successful career.  He fitted bows for friends and their acquaintances.  Later, his children became interested in archery and started shooting in 3D tournaments.
Although he worked full-time, he made appointments connecting with people in his off-duty hours and on weekends.  Positive reviews of his workmanship spread throughout the community, and archers soon drove from as far as one to two hours for Bumper to fit them.
In February 2014, Bumper and his wife Adrianne followed their intuition and transformed their packed family garage into a product warehouse and workshop.  It seemed like a stretch to branch out and launch a home-based business, but they did it anyway.
As Christians, they believed God would bless their efforts if they continued putting him first and showing others how to do the same.  They adopted the name "PGF," an acronym for "Putting God First."
As the Lord began moving in their business and lives, the Williamses formed a Junior Olympic Archery team under the umbrella of USA Archery.  With the help of a simple "Heart of the Outdoors" Bible and devotional, they shared simple Scriptures with children before practice.  Fourteen young people soon made life-changing decisions to accept Jesus into their hearts and grow a personal relationship with Him.
The Williamses quickly outgrew their garage set-up and established additional space at their home with carpeting and air conditioning.  Then a door opened for Bumper to create a storefront in Elizabeth City on the north side of town in the Food Lion Plaza.  Jamey Hurdle, a certified bow technician from a previous business, agreed to partner with Bumper to precisely fit archers' equipment.  A second bow technician, Scott , joined the team to accommodate the growing number of archers at PGF.  In addition, fishing guru Bill Heighter helps outdoorsmen of all ages maximize their time and results while enjoying the Albemarle waters.
