Membership

Our archery club boasts a membership roster of 300+ people, many including families. All members are required to help maintain all aspects of our club, including: the maintenance of the overall property, keeping the clubhouse in working order, and hosting our events.

The day-to-day needs of the club are run by the Board of Officers, who are members that are elected annually by the general membership.  These officers run the daily activities such as range captain, scorekeeper, treasurer, secretary, webmaster, etc.
