Well it has been a couple busy months at the Club! We have been seeing a lot of new faces during our indoor shooting times and with the kick off of our Junior program last week we hope to see this continue into our outdoor season which is (hopefully) just around the corner! Registration for our Indoor junior program is full but we are taking registration for our outdoor program that is slated to start in May (tentative day and time is Monday from 6-7:30).

Our Indoor league has seen some of our members achieving personal bests and some marked improvement in our scores since the league started in January. This league is set to be wrapped up in early April. If their is enough interest we will look at doing an outdoor league at some longer distances, FITA, etc.

Thanks to some of our younger members for trialling our Junior program before the initial launch - many of them were awarded Certificate of Achievements for their accomplishments. Good Shooting and keep up the good work!

Happy New Year! 

 

Things have been busy at the club! We had our elections in November and since have been working hard on setting up a junior program that we are hoping to have up and running towards the end of March as well as implement a fun league shooting on Thursdays at no extra charge to members. The start time for scoring a round will start at 7:00 so if you haven't shot a round in a while (or ever) come down to the indoor club in Taylor and give it a try. the league is designed around self-improvement so you will be shooting against yourself more than shooting against others. We will be posting scores weekly for those who submit their scores.

The date for our Indoor shoot has been scheduled for March 25th adn 26th 2017 at the babcock Arena with details posted under the Tournaments tab. We are also currently working on collecting shooting dates from the other clubs in the area to create a shooting calendar for all the indoor and outdoor 3D and target shoots in the area that are available for download on our website for use on mobile devices from the Calendar tab of the website, just click on the lower left "+ Google Calendar".

Also we are in the process of updating our website so please be patient with us and contact us if you would like to see something added to the site (resources, etc.) and we will look at getting them added.

Shoot Straight!
