...possibly, a meet-up to help (adult) newbies get into this sport.

...(i.e. orientation, subsequent lessons and/or group practice, .... and mo' practice opportunities).

Maybe a large group 3D shoot off for group members??

    woke up to my having leaked oil all over the driveway. DOH! I have absolutely no clue how it did this as the drain has no oil on it. So i'll be under a car most of the day, very sorry and hope everyone has a great time!

      HOpe it's nothing too serious or expensive to fix.

      February 10, 2013

    • Jivan

      Thanks Lauri, looks like most of the oil was leaked last night onto my driveway but the oil pan was pierced, it shouldn't be a problem putting in a new one with new gaskets. Really really sorry i missed this, would have been very need to see what happened in the pictures!

    At the archery range in Papago Park off Oak north of mcdowell.

  • Lauri

    We're running a little late this morning but we'll be there (my son and I). We both have recurves, mine is right handed, his is left. I probably won't shoot today because I hurt my back, so others with no equipment can try out some shooting with my bow. Looking forward to meeting everyone! Thanks Robert for getting this organized!

    Unfortunately, I am, at the moment, as reliable as my car is at any given time.

    is everybody ready? chime in on what you drive so we can look for each other since none of us have met i will be driving my maroon madza since i can not carry the bow on the motorcycle

    1 · February 9, 2013

    • Lauri

      try also a Bass Pro shop, they'll have loads of targets

      1 · February 9, 2013

    • Jay

      i would suggest a block (if you already have a bow), since the stands there arent reliable and there are only 3, if not you can use my block to shoot at

      2 · February 10, 2013

  • Lauri

    I'll also be in a white Altima coupe, but mine's a hybrid, so it'll have the antenna on the roof. Not sure what I'll be wearing, but I'll be carrying my bow.

    February 9, 2013

    • Lauri

      Oh, just FYI, if it's raining, I probably will pass. HOping for dry skies.

      February 9, 2013

  • Lauri

    I have a target (big square block that sits on the ground) that I'll bring.

    nate you are welcome even with out a bow this is more for the members to meet yes members may bring there bows and shoot but it is more for meet & greet.

    It seems like events are typically planned on Sundays. Please don't be offended but I have church related worship and obligations on Sundays. Would it be possible to organize an activity on a Saturday or other day? I need to hone my.zombie killing skills. JK

    February 6, 2013

  • Nate M.

    probably going to try and come not 100% sure yet still looking at bows :)

    February 6, 2013

  • Lauri

    Ok, I'm definitely coming and I'll be bringing my son with me. With both have simple recurve bows, mine is right handed, his is left handed. And we'll bring arrows to use with our bows. I don't mind sharing, I just wanna be sure to bring back all of my own arrows!! See you all on Sunday morning!

    January 15, 2013

  • Crystal C.

    I am still interested. I couldn't wait so I took a beginner course at Ben Avery and have been shooting there the 1st of every Saturday; thats the day for beginners if you don't have your own equipment, but it is soooo far. I'd like to meet up with y'all at Papago.

    so far everyone is voting for papago so i changed the place to go with the votes HOWEVER if the votes change in favor of ben avery i will change it again

    i would like an updated rsvp if possible since some are 6 months old

    January 14, 2013

  • Lauri

    I vote for Papago.

    January 14, 2013

    • Barbara

      I vote for Papago....but IF Papago not "chosen", then maybe we can form a splinter group of east side archers?

      January 14, 2013

    A former member

    ok so we need a vote on where you the members will want this either ben avery or papago the location with the most votes is were it will happen

    January 14, 2013

  • Barbara

    Papago sounds fantastic! Thanks for putting it together.
    i will be there (february) ! Looking forward to it.
    Want to learn how to target shoot.

    January 13, 2013

  • Lauri

    Not sure yet if I can make it, but probably so. When it gets a bit closer I'll give an RSVP one way or the other. Thanks for setting this up!

    no fee as far as the group however if you want to shoot there is a range i am open to other locations but thought this was more central

    January 13, 2013

  • Nicki

    Is there any kind of fee this time?

  • Lauri

    Well, the weather has cooled off, but I'm not going to be around much during October. Hoping that everyone here still has interest in meeting up soon! I was thinking of taking my son to Usery on 10/6 early in the morning (like 7am-9am-ish) for some target practice with our recurves. if anyone else is interested, let me know!

    September 30, 2012

    • Jivan

      Awww, just saw this post right now, I would definitely be interested in meeting up though!

      October 6, 2012

  • Crystal C.

    Any news on a possible meetup???

    August 28, 2012

    • Lauri

      I think we're gonna wait until it cools off a little more.

      September 1, 2012

  • Jivan

    I thought that I heard there was a range (outdoor) at Papago. I do have a question though, is this mostly a recurve or compound bow group??? Have always preferred recurve.

    August 26, 2012

    • Lauri

      I've only shot wiht a recurve so far, but I would like to start using a compound as well. I don't think it really matters.

      September 1, 2012

  • Jivan

    http://www.papagoarchery.com/ seems like a pretty nice place

    August 26, 2012

  • Crystal C.

    This sounds great! I've always wanted to get into archery all my life and finally decided to do some digging around and found this. Hope we all still get together at the end of the month! :)

    August 9, 2012

  • Lauri

    Usery or Avery would work (Avery is quite a ways for me, about 1 hour + drive), but once we find out where others are located we could decide. Or, alternate back and forth between the 2 locations depending on where most people are?

    August 6, 2012

  • A former member

    A former member changed the location to Ben Avery Shooting Facility

    August 6, 2012

  • A former member
    A former member

    I am not sure where everyone is located but Avery's is perfect they have multiple ranges FITA, Know Yardage, 3D courses. I would say Saturday early AM until the weather cools off. I would be happy to help arrange meet up events there.

    1 · August 6, 2012

  • Lauri

    My son and I will be bringing our recurves. One is right handed, the other leftie.

    August 6, 2012

  • Lauri

    Weekend mornings would work for me, or early evenings on some nights. Indoor ranges are expensive and not sure how easy it would be to find one that is available during the hours we would want. That's the nice thing about outdoor ranges. Unless there is some competition going on, you go, pay your fee for the day (typically $6-7), and use all of their ranges at will. If you find an indoor range that has time available, post it and we can see if we can pull something together.

    August 6, 2012

  • Barbara

    I forgot to interject, that I work.....so am limited to only early evenings or weekends meet ups.

    August 5, 2012

  • Barbara

    Yes! Let's get this started! Am sooo excited to get this going.
    I have equipment but no knowledge of how to use it. Indoor range while weather is hot sounds great!

    August 5, 2012

  • Lauri

    I also would like a casual newbie meetup. But perhaps wait until it's a bit cooler. We could use the outdoor range at Usery Park which is usually not too busy and is not very expensive either. I do have my own recurve, as does my son (he is a leftie however), and I'd be happy to allow others to learn to shoot with it. I'm not an instructor and haven't been shooting long so if someone wants to volunteer to instruct that would be great. If anyone is interested, maybe we can set a tentative date for late September or early October? it would still need to be fairly early in the morning to beat the heat. If not then, perhaps early November (I will be gone for the remainder of weekends in October).

    I would love to attend a newbies. It would just depend on date and location. The bows have changed so much since I was in highschool. I don't have archery equipment at this time. Will have to save for it. Is it possible to rent equipment? If so, appx. how much?

    I'm interested in a newbie meet-up. I've only shot twice since regaining an interest in archery. I'd like advice on bow type and manufacturer.
