many people that are helping grow our sport of archery, Frank Addington
stands out. He brings unparalleled excitement and showmanship to
introducing new people to the thrill of watching the flight of an arrow.
My old boss, Fred Bear, always said that Frank was going to turn a lot of
people on to our sport before he was done. He saw and appreciated Frank's
potential that is now being realized."
“Frank Addington is
one of those people that I regard as an excellent "role model" for
youth and family in the outdoors. At his demonstrations his message
is about how hunting, fishing, and shooting sports helps hold families
together and builds character and responsibility in youth. He bases
his message on his life experiences and opportunities. He relates
well to his audiences because he is a genuine and honest gentleman
with a country up-bringing. Besides that he is a fantastic archer and
loves the outdoors. We at the Weatherby Foundation International
appreciate Frank's contributions as a member of our Outdoor Expo Tech
Team because of his strong committment to outdoor skills and
hope you guys enjoy this because you're looking at the best trick shot in
North America in my opinion. And he does it shooting behind his back with
his bow not the normal way. Which makes it about a hundred times harder
than what anybody else on this continent does in trick shooting
exhibitions. Please join me in welcoming Frank Addington...."
"The mystical flight of the arrow has been a
guiding force of physical and spiritual harmony in my life and the lives of
millions of families across America forever. My American BloodBrother Frank
Addington Jr. celebrates this moving archery ballet at its finest. It is a
razzle dazzle bow and arrow demonstration of the highest order that the
whole family will enjoy. Frank is the master. "
"He's the William Tell of popping pills..."
"Frank's is one heck of an archer. His ability to
split an aspirin with an arrow shot from behind his back never failed to
amaze the crowds and media attending our San Francisco and Del Mar Shows."
"The Olympic qualifier brought hundreds of
competitors, but you brought the fun and spirit of the games to New York,
and you were such a delight for the adults and children you entertained. You
made a believer of Jeanie Moos and me on the Aspirin Busting, and I was able
to stand near a true star."
"I was really pleased with the crowds at your
demonstrations. It was obvious many had heard about you before they arrived,
and wanted to see if you really could do what seems impossible to most of
us. Thanks again."
"Last year, over 47,000 attended the free, sponsored event at
which Mr. Addington shot an aspirin on his first try. Show attendees went
away exclaiming, ‘Wow, did you see that!’"
"Frank Addington, Jr.'s performance, brings a new level of
skill and excitement to archery."
"You have opened a new world for me in bow hunting."
