Your Archery Revolution Begins December 6th

From the moment I witnessed Katniss Everdeen fling that first arrow, I knew we were on to something special.  Archery is cool, and Katniss has made it cooler to millions of young boys and girls who now want to possess the same skills she has.  The good news?  Thanks to  facilities like the Nebraska Outdoor Education Center, now they can!

Join us December 6th from 10am – 4pm for Archery on Fire, a free family day of outdoor skills fun.  Fling arrows on Nebraska’s largest indoor archery range at bullseye and 3D animal targets.  Shoot President Snow’s battle ships out of the sky on the aerial archery range.    Come shoot 22 rimfire rifles on the firearm range, throw hatchets on the tomahawk range and enjoy outdoor cooking (smores) and crafts for younger tributes.  Did I mention FREE  FOOD thanks to Lincoln Scheels?   All equipment for the activities will be provided free!

All the fun will be hosted at the new Nebraska Outdoor Education Center located at 44th and Superior (4703 N 44th St).  Drawings will be held for 1/2 price lifetime youth hunting permits, a free annual pass to the new Outdoor Education Center and more.  Food will be available from 1130 am -1pm.

Your archery revolution has begun!  Come join us on December 6th to be a part of this exciting effort and learn the skills that have made Katniss a star on the big screen.
