List of Committees

 

Archery Committee

archery-lv2instructor

The goal of the Archery Committee is to promote the sport of archery at the Lowell Sportmen’s Club. The committee seeks to achieve this in the following ways. First, the committee hosts an Exploring Archery event every Thursday night. This event is open to both members and the general public once a week. We encourage everyone to come and experience the joy of archery. Next, we strive to improve the indoor and outdoor archery ranges. This includes maintenance and incremental improvements to keep pace with the advancement of the sport. We also support several club events and activities such as the Spring Fling, Turkey Shoot, and the Open House. The committee members contribute in many ways by acting as range captains, instructors, arrow wranglers, and whatever else is needed at the time. We are always looking for new ways to make archery fun and accessible. If you have any ideas that you would like to contribute, or would just like to lend a hand, please contact us.
