What we're about

Hi All. All DC Archery Practices will be canceled until the MD State of Emergency has been rescinded. For more information, see our message board here: https://www.meetup.com/DC-Archery-Club/messages/boards/thread/52736030

As soon as we're given the OK, we'll be back up and running. Until then, stay safe and healthy.

***************************************************************************

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 participate in target practice, meet other archers, and join in other fun events. The group is open to all ages, skill levels and styles of archery.

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.

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 15 minutes early so we can get you set up. If you RSVP to the meetup, but do not comment to let us know you are in need of equipment or lessons, you will be asked to come back another day. Our arsenal is limited but we'll do our best to make sure all beginners have a bow during lesson time.

George is kind enough to provide and maintain targets, loaner equipment and snacks, so ALL participants, especially those using his equipment, are highly encouraged to donate to his equipment-maintenance & tasty snack fund. If you don't have cash, you can Venmo your donation to @GeorgeDCA.

We highly recommend that everyone reads and understands our club policies and range etiquette found on our message board here: https://www.meetup.com/DC-Archery-Club/messages/boards/

See you at the range!
