If watching certain scenes from Game of Thrones has you yearning to unleash your inner archer, head to Woodley Park Archery Range. The free lessons, held every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning on a first-come, first-served basis, cover the nuts and bolts of archery; the neighborhood park where they're held is decked out with its very own range built for Olympic Games training. Experienced instructors fit newcomers with equipment and teach them the finer points of shooting a bow and arrow, such as proper stance, grip, handling and, of course, safety. They then are allowed to join the shooting line, practicing their new skill hitting bull's-eye targets. Donning the equipment and taking aim is a sure-fire way to finally set free the Wildling lurking inside you.
