Broadheads are not to be used on the outdoor practice bales, the Field and Hunter Course or the 3D course. These courses are for field tips ONLY. There is a special box with sand set up if you need to tune your broadheads. This is located on the west side of the practice range.
If anyone is found to be shooting broadheads on any of our courses or our standard practice bales their shooting privileges will be revoked.
Thank you for making sure all of our members can enjoy our courses and our practice range.

Check Out What's New & Coming Soon!
This coming year will also be our 75th anniversary as a club and we are looking for some ideas of what we can do to celebrate with our members and the public. We are planning a celebration during our August 3-D shoot, but the details are still unknown. Let us know if you have any suggestions of what we could do.
We are also looking at participating in the Auburn Cornfest Parade for 2020. We did this a couple years in the past and had a lot of fun. We're going to need your support to make this even more fun this time around.
We will be trying out a new scheduling system soon that will allow members to volunteer for these and other volunteer opportunities with our club. More information will be available soon as we test out this process.
