There are no indoor or outdoor archery ranges inside DC city limits, but there are a few great opportunities for avid archers to shoot in nearby MD and VA. This group is for archers who want to do target practice, meet other archers, and possibly compete in competitions. The group is open to all skill levels and for those that use compound, recurve, barebow, and long bows.

We have regular shooting practice once a week at the Lake Needwood archery range near Rockville at 1 PM on Saturdays.  Other events are announced on the meet up site sporadically as well.

We have a great group of archers and a few are gracious enough to provide some equipment and training to beginners.  If you are a beginner, free first-timer lessons start promptly at 2pm and go until 3pm. Please make sure to RSVP in the comment section or contact a group organizer so we can make sure we have enough equipment, and arrive at least 10 minutes early so we can get you set up. Our arsenal is limited but we'll do our best to make sure all beginners have a bow during this time.

George is kind enough to provide and maintain targets, loaner equipment and tasty snacks, so ALL participants, especially those using his equipment, are highly encouraged to donate to his equipment-maintenance fund.
