Just a reminder that Archery will be shooting outdoors today! We will be shooting at the range at Sandy Downs. The range is located on E. 65th just east of the Sandy Downs Arena. For those who are unfamiliar to the area, it's situated between Hitt Rd. and Woodruff, being closest to Hitt Rd. If you are coming from Hitt Rd., take a right on E. 65th (my landmark is the end of the golf course and the high voltage power lines) and continue west- you'll see the targets on your left. The entry gate is just before the canal. For those coming from Woodruff, take a left on E. 65th (landmark the Sandy Downs arena) and drive east and turn into the entry right after the canal.
