One of the many outdoor activity booths at the 2018 Expo will be provided by the Evergreen Archery Club (EAC). Stop by their display to try your hand at a Nerf-style bow while you chat with archery enthusiasts and glance over some real bow and arrow options.
The EAC plans to display a bow that represents each type of shooting: a beginner-style Genesis bow, a traditional-style bow, a hunting bow, and a target bow. Learn about a new type of shooting by stopping by for a conversation.
If you sign up for an Evergreen Archery Club membership at the Expo, you’ll be able to take advantage of the various targets at the club archery range on North Rimrock Drive near Spokane Falls Community College. The club range includes a flat range with targets from five to 100 yards in distance, and two 14-target field courses.
Field courses are a bit similar to a golf course, where you “play one” and then move on to the next objective. At the range, you can step up and shoot a target at a specific distance, and then progress to the next target at a different distance. The course is designed so you won’t cross paths with any fellow archery enthusiast’s arrows, and provides structured outdoor time to perfect your shooting skills.
Randall Kimberling, Director of the Evergreen Archery Club, says that he often goes to the club range for two hours of shooting with his father and three sons.
“It’s something that you can do while learning and carrying on conversations,” says Kimberling.
With the purchase of a club membership, you can take advantage of the club range for a year, showing up as often as you like. Kimberling says the club is made up of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.
“It’s just a bunch of people that shoot archery and put up targets. [They can] get out from behind the desk or out of the house and bring the family. You just go for a walk while you’re shooting archery.”
Make sure to check out the EAC booth at the Expo for more information on the club, how to register, and upcoming archery events.
