The archery range is looking for volunteers to help set up targets on Friday before each 3-D shoot. We are going to set up teams, either two, three or four people on a team. This team will be responsible for setting up 10 targets on Friday before the 3-D shoot each month. Team one might set up the first 10 targets before the first shoot and then they would rotate to targets 11 thru 20. They will be able to use their own imagination when setting these targets as long are placed in a safe manner. The course will be checked for safety before shooters are allowed on the course. We are also looking for people interested in pulling these targets down on Sunday afternoon after each shoot. If you are interested in helping please contact one of the numbers to sign up for a team or arrange your own team or to help on Sunday and get signed up.
