Archery Enthusiasts,
Prepare your bows and label your arrows. The archery range grand opening is scheduled for October 15, 2016. The range may appear to be ready to go, but there are just a few housekeeping items we need to take care of before we officially open. In the next few weeks staff and contractors will be wrapping up the following:

* Bleacher delivery for the spectator area
* Delivery and install of equipment storage unit
* Installation of lane lines and distance markers
* Signage
* Target stands and bales
* Information bulletin boards
* Trash receptacles
* Landscape enhancements

Please mark your calendar as we dedicate the Valley's newest archery range on October 15, 2016. An electronic invite will be sent out in the very near future. We will have plenty of guest speakers and we're currently securing archers to provide a demonstration the morning of the dedication. If you have any ideas to help kick off the opening of the range, please do not hesitate to contact me with your ideas. Also, we are looking for archery groups and other entities to provide classes and program opportunities for all archery ability levels.
