Join the Archery Club in Briones

Founded in the early 1960s, the Briones Archery Club attracts archery enthusiasts of all ages. Situated among shady oak and bay trees within Briones Regional Park, the range is accessible via the Seaborg/Crescent Ridge Trail, approximately three quarters of a mile east of the park’s Bear Creek Road entrance.

 

The Briones Archery Club is a nonprofit volunteer organization, established to promote the sport of archery in its various forms. Club members work hard to maintain a safe, enjoyable shooting experience. The range is set up to National Field Archery Association specifications, with a large, open practice range and three separate 14-target field rounds.

 

The range is open to the general public during park hours, and there is no cost to use it. Phil Myers, Briones Archery board member, tells the Focus, “Although the archery range is open to the general public, club members do all the maintenance and upkeep of the range facilities. Our claim to fame is our ‘Monday Night 3D Shoots” in the spring and summer months, where we attract up to 100 shooters. I believe it is the natural setting of the range that make it an attraction.”

 

Weather permitting, the Briones Archery Club holds a monthly shoot at the range the second Sunday of the month, at 9:30am. On the Wednesday prior to the club shoot weekend, the club has a monthly meeting at 7pm at Round Table Pizza, 3637 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette. It’s a great time to inquire about membership and meet club officers. The next meeting is February 8, and the club shoot takes place Sunday, February 12. The shoot day is a great way for prospective members to get a feel for the club and show off some skill. A sandwich lunch is provided.

 

Monday Night Shoot season begins April 10. The last shoot will be August 14. Save the date for Father’s Day, June 18, for the annual Bear Creek Open 3D Shoot. Gates open at 6:30am; registration is 7-8:30am; and starting time is 9am. For more information, visit www.brionesarchery.org.
