Last spring, heavy rainfall washed away all but one of the Menomonie Archery Club’s bridges, cutting off access to much of their property.
Thanks to a creek that meanders through the 13.5 acres, the bridges are necessary for accessing the full extent of the club’s outdoor range. Following a year of rebuilding efforts, members of the club completed the last bridge in July, which means that archers are now able to access a majority of the property through an exciting 3D target course.
Membership to the club runs June to June, and the organization is currently accepting new members. Members can access the property at any time. When the snow arrives, a nine-week, indoor winter league keeps keen archers in shape throughout the frozen months. The club’s next big event is its annual end-of-summer Bowhunter Jamboree from Aug. 28-29.
It is a compound 3-D shoot, and entry is $10 per person. This is a great opportunity to check out the newly built bridges and the expanded course.
More information, including membership details, is available on the club’s Facebook page.
