Family Fun at the Lincoln Archery Park

I know several missed it be we had a great time at the Families on Target program at the Lincoln Archery Park the other night. Over 100 came out to fling arrows at 3D animal targets, bullseye targets and flying targets (what a hoot!). Already getting folks asking for another one and we may try to hold one in the Omaha area before snowfall.

Many asked about all the construction going on at Boosalis Park in Lincoln (location of the Lincoln Archery Park). That will result in the development of the new Lincoln Shooting Park and Education Center. This new facility will host an indoor firearms range, archery range, classrooms and the home site for many of our education program team leaders. We plan to host a variety of family and youth friendly educational programs for shooting sports, Hunter and Bow Hunter Education, Boater Education and much more at this new facility. I took some current ground pictures of the construction mess and will update when something exciting happens! We look to have this open April or May of 2014. Stay tuned….
