3D Archery Setup April 20

3D Archery Setup course setup will be April 20th beginning at 8:00 am.  There may be some parking congestion due to several other events scheduled simultaneously. There may be some room by the storage shed by the farmhouse where the targets are stored.

There will also be some course maintenance required.

3D Archery League entry forms and schedule are available on the 3D Archery Activity page, see links at the bottom of the page.  Scorecards and rules will be posted near the bulletin board by the bridge.

I hope to add some longer-range shot positions for bonus points on several targets this year to enhance participant experience.  We are also investigating hosting a 3D Archery competition as a fund-raising event and to increase community awareness of our archery activities.

For more information,  contact Joe Porwoll.

New Member Safety Briefing

NEW MEMBERS...

Upon joining DBCL, all new members are required to attend a New Member Safety Briefing (NMSB).

Effective July 1st, 2022, no new member may use the DBCL grounds or facilities until after they have attended a NMSB.  This decision was made by the DBCL Board of Directors at the June 20th meeting.

New members had previously been given up to 90 days to attend a NMSB but were to ensure they followed the DBCL Facility Use & Safety Procedures in the interim.  This policy has recently changed.

Jeff Pharris
President - DBCL
