Brainerd Archery Club indoor leagues location change, schedule listed

Brainerd Archery Club 3D leagues and tournaments are scheduled starting in January at the Northern Pacific Center on 13th Street Southeast in Brainerd. This is a different location than prior years. 

An open house will be from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4.

Leagues will run Jan. 8 through March 29. Archers may shoot anytime between 6-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays and choose to be on a two-man team or shoot individually.

The first two weeks of leagues will be practice sessions, with league scoring starting Jan. 22. League archers will turn in one score card a week.

The Brainerd Archery Club will host three weekend 3D tournaments: Jan. 12-13, Feb. 16-17 and March 16-17 (8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Sundays). They will consist of 30 life-sized animal targets placed at unmarked yardages. No broadheads or rangefinders will be allowed.

For league play, the club is offering an unlimited 3D shooting pass (for members only) for $80. An additional fee of $30 per team will go toward first-, second- and third-place team trophies.

Archers of all abilities are welcome and need not be a member of the archery club to participate. However, club members get reduced shooting fees, free use of the outdoor range (except during scheduled tournaments), voting privileges, a quarterly newsletter about club activities and membership in the Minnesota State Archery Association.

Membership fee is $40 for a family, $30 for individuals and $20 for juniors (under 14). Archery club members are charged $8 for 3D shoots (30 targets); non-members pay $10.
