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 and 3rd Saturday of the month. For only $15 a year, your club membership grants you the following benefits:

• Gotham Archery (Brooklyn, NY, 1st Saturday) and C&B Archery (Hicksville, Long Island, 3rd 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.

Monthly Meetup at C&B Archery

Needs a location

Please note changes under range fees and public transportation. Thanks! Waiting List: If a waiting list is automatically created because of the volume of yes RSVPs, please be considerate if you are not coming to the shoot. RSVP NO promptly so that people on the waiting list can be moved automatically to the Attending List. Attending List: Please remember that the RSVP list closes at 10 pm the day before an event. If you change your RSVP to NO after that time or are a no-show, someone on the waiting list could be left out. We take that very seriously. Club Hours: C&B sets aside space for us from 12:30pm to 2:30pm so those are the official club hours. First-Timers: If it is your first time at C&B, you will have to take a lesson from the range staff. If you are an experienced archer, you must at least stay for the safety portion of the lesson (no exceptions, range rules). Lessons start at half past the hour so if you miss the 12:30pm, you may have to sit around and wait for the 1:30pm. Please be on time. Public Transportation: LIRR to Hicksville and then a taxi from the station to C&B (make sure to tell them 11 Commercial St in Hicksville). The train from Penn gets into Hicksville at 11:55 am. The Uber rate as of 11/20/18 is roughly $11-13. Those of you taking the train may wish to post a message to the group to share an Uber. Range Costs: FOR NYCLIAG members who have their own equipment: 10.00 per hour (or 8.00 if you have bought your bow at C&B. C&B will offer an "all-day shooting" fee for 15.00 at its discretion. You would need to shoot a minimum of 2 hours. For NYCLIAG members who need to rent C&B equipment and who need to purchase any kind of lesson, full or safety, (first visit to C&B): 26.00 (includes range time.) For NYCLIAG who need to rent equipment: 21.00 (includes equipment and range time.) NOTE: NYCLIAG will lend you a bow, arrows, and arm gear for free, but you need to message the co-organizers in advance to ask one of them to bring a bow, etc.: you need to specify right or left hand. Fran has the equipment for C&B in Hicksville; Anne-Marie has the equipment for Gotham in Brooklyn. Visit the C&B website (http://www.kpsearch.com/df/cbarcherynew/all.asp?action=shooting) for the most up-to-date information. See you on the shooting line!
