Archery

Hey peeps;

I am doing archery at the Burnaby sports complex and was wondering if anyone would like to join me or have weekly meets.

Family orientated and newb friendly. I just started !




Archery talk and tech here.

It's just a range there, you'll have to visit a local shop to help answer your questions.

Membership, usually a person can get a key for the target which is $60 a year I think and share between however many.

Me and a friend together have a left and right handed bow so if you'd like to try come please come hang

For those not wanting to go to Burnaby, there's also a place in Surrey off of 184 (around 16th) that does drop in classes every Thursday, called Semihamoo Archery. I believe it's $6-8 to shoot for the night and that includes insurance and rental.

First time going with my ex. Pretty sure she hit the bullseye more often than me. I also think her kid did as well.
