The Indoor Archery Range is located as you come into the clubhouse and is made up of five Spyder-Web arrow recovery boxes. Only Sharp Field Point Arrows can be used — No Broad Head Arrows. The floor is marked for proper distances for archery competition. Crossbows are permitted, but only on the targets marked for them. There is a magnetic sign located on the inside entry door that must be placed on the OUTSIDE entry door when the archery range is in use. It is the member’s responsibility to return the sign inside when finished shooting. During the time when the Indoor Archery Range is in use members must enter the clubhouse using the side door that opens into the kitchen area.
The Outdoor Archery Range is located at the south side of the clubhouse off the parking lot area. This range is also a basic range for field tipped arrows (No Broad Heads allowed). You may shoot at any safe distance you choose. Targets for this range are located in the storage room behind the clubhouse. Members using this range are reminded to return all targets to the storage room when finished.
Outdoor 3D Archery Woods Walk
This Outdoor Archery Range features 3D targets designed to challenge the archery shooter in the skills necessary for the competition archer as well as the bow hunter sportsman.
The 3D Outdoor Range is located in the woods on the north side of the clubhouse, next to the Black Powder range. This range has 12 firing positions. This is a basic range for field tipped arrows (No Broad Heads or Crossbows allowed on the 3D Range). Each station has 4 marked shooting positions to choose from for adult and youth shooters. Yellow is for youth, Orange is for re-curve or long bow, Red/Blue are for compound bows.
The 3D Range is open during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons and closes up for the winter beginning in November each year.
