What we're about

Thank you for visiting the New York City/Long Island Archery Meetup Group! We are a friendly and diverse bunch of folks, brought together by our love for this ancient martial art. We hail from the five boroughs plus Nassau and Suffolk counties.

We have all sorts of shooters--Olympic recurve, compound, traditional, primitive--whether you've been shooting your entire life or you've never held a bow before, all are welcome!

We host a MeetUp every 1st Sunday of the month. For only $15 a year, your club membership grants you the following benefits:

• Gotham Archery (Brooklyn, NY, 1st Saturday) special club-only discounts -- save up to $160/year on range costs!

• Free loaner equipment is available at most MeetUps (first come, first served) -- save up to $192/year in rental fees!

• Access to outdoor events at Cedar Creek Park in Seaford, Long Island and Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn.

Please visit the 'Pages' section to find out more about the Group, to have basic questions (FAQs) answered, and to learn more about archery. The Pages button is located above.

We do have an age requirement of 18 and over for membership. To be invited to join, please click on "Join Us!", answer the short list of questions, and upload a recent, accurate photo that includes a clear picture of your face and please, use your real name. We can usually respond within 48 hours.

Cedar Creek Outdoor Shoot

Cedar Creek Park Playground

This outdoor event is weather dependent! Our start time is flexible. Those of you without equipment (a bow, arrows, arm guard, glove) need to reserve club equipment once you RSVP yes. There will be plenty of targets, ground quivers, and there is club equipment, free of charge as always, which will be available on a first-YES-RSVP, first-served basis. From points west, take the LIRR southern line to the Wantagh train station. If taking a taxi from the train station to the park, tell the cabbie you want Cedar Creek Park, Field 5. Once there, head south towards the playground. When you see it, keep the playground on your left. The entrance to the range will be on your right. You'll see us. NB: If any drivers out there can swing by the Wantagh train station to collect folks coming on the LIRR from Manhattan, Brooklyn, and other points west, I'm sure the "city folk" would deeply appreciate it. Post to this event if you are willing to do a "station run" from and/or to Wantagh station. If driving, take the Southern State Parkway to Exit 27 South (Wantagh Parkway). Exit Wantagh Parkway at W6 (Merrick Road East). Continue down Merrick Road for approximately half-mile and look for the park entrance on your right. The car fee as of 2018 is 10.00. Park in Field 5 or as close to Field 5 as possible. Head towards the playground. When you see it, walk south on the path with the playground on your left. The entrance to the range will be on your right. We will grab a picnic table. Please BRING with you whatever you wish to eat and drink. Should you wish to bring extra drinks or food for the group, nice! Fran will be bringing setups for all (plates, cups, etc.)
