SFLA opens indoor archery range
For the last five and a half months, the St. Francis Lake Association has been working on an indoor archery range, which had its grand opening Tuesday night.
The indoor archery range is located on West Main Street in the old Singer Complex, right across the street from Victory Lighthouse Baptist Church. Right now it is set up for nine shooting lanes with 3-D targets. According to SFLA President Terry Rollins, they will have the ability to shoot out to 50 yards, which makes it the largest indoor archery range in the region as most are 20 yards. And Rollins said it was big enough to host indoor tournaments.
Rollins said that while it will be great to have a place for SFLA members to shoot, their ultimate goal is to get a youth league set up to get kids interested in archery.
They have 3-D targets set up right now but would eventually like to have block-style targets for practice and save the 3-D targets for tournaments.
For right now, the range will be open two nights a week, starting at 5 p.m. Tuesdays will be for practice, shooting, and fun, and Thursdays will be for tournaments. Entry fee on Tuesday is $5, and the fee on Thursday is $10. The range is for SFLA members, but membership is free and anyone is welcome to join.
