Drop in Archery Night

 

Never shot a bow before? Haven't done it since high school or summer camp but you've wanted to for a long time? This is your opportunity!
Newbie Nights are generally for NEW MEMBERS who have never shot a bow before.
Please arrive on time or even a little early so you can be fitted with your equipment.
The professional instructors will determine your left or right eye dominance and select the best equipment to suit your strength and draw.
After they review the basic safety rules, you'll be making Swiss cheese of your paper target.
Enjoy 2 hours shooting indoors over progressive distances and at the end of the event, you can take your perforated target home as a souvenir!
