NEW DETAILS, FOLKS. PLEASE NOTICE THE CHANGES IN BOLD.
Attending List: The RSVP list for Gotham now closes a WEEK before an event. We must inform Gotham a week in advance of the number of "yes" RSVPs so that the range knows how many are coming. What can no longer happen are drop-outs the day before, or the day of, a shoot, as we have to guarantee a certain number of people in order to keep our discounted rate. If you are uncertain about coming, then please RSVP NO. This is crucial.
The NYC/LI Archery Group needs to continue its harmonious relationship with Gotham Archery: the stipulations above have been requested by the owners. Club attendees to Gotham have shown themselves to be reliable and conscientious. However, please note that repeatedly dropping out after the RSVP deadline or being a no-show two or more times will now be grounds for removal from the club.
Club Hours: For the time being, Gotham Archery has reserved space for us from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Please be aware that our two-hour time-frame may be altered, depending on Gotham's Saturday schedule.
First-Timers: You will have to take a safety & intro lesson class from the range staff and demonstrate safe shooting. The class starts at 11:00am...please arrive 15 minutes early for the class.
Public Transportation: Gotham Archery is located at 480 Baltic St., Brooklyn, NY 11217 in Gowanus between Bond and Nevin Streets. It's a few blocks south-west of the Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr train station.
From Long Island: You can take the LIE, Northern State or Southern State to either Jackie Robinson or the BQE. Set your GPS to 480 Baltic Street, NY, 11217. (Most LIRR stations suspend parking fees on weekends). You change at Jamaica for the Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn. The Terminal is three short stops from Jamaica. Cross over to 4th Avenue, walk south seven blocks to Baltic, make a right, walk down 2 1/2 blocks. Gotham is in between Nevin and Bond on the left (south) side of the street.
Range Costs: Make sure to mention you are shooting with the NYC Archery Group to get the CLUB ONLY rate: $20 for two hours of shooting, $5 for equipment (plus sales tax). These discounts only apply during official club hours.
Club Equipment: Please post in the comments if you would like to borrow club equipment.
See you on the shooting line!
