May meeting
 
We will be holding a vote at the
May meeting to require wood arrows
for traditional longbow shooters in any
event that includes a longbow class.
 
This change is in line with TBOF rules and better differentiates a difference between longbow and recurve classes
 
If you prefer to shoot carbon arrows with your longbow, you can still shoot
however, you will be placed in the
recurve class and shoot as a recurve.
 
All are welcome to attend the meeting
May 2, 2018
Be there for your input and your vote

Reminder:
 
We are using a roving mulligan system this year for our shoots, including the Tuesday night Working Man shoot. We will not not have a designated mulligan on the course. You take your ONE mulligan shot at whichever target you wish to use it on, at the time you need to use it. You can not come back and take your mulligan at a later time, including after you have finished the course. If you have not used it after completing the course,  you lose it. Your mulligan shot will replace your original shot on that target even if your mulligan shot results in a lower score. The mulligan shot must be marked on your scorecard as an "M" next to your score for that target

Next 3D shoot
May 13, 2018
 
Working Man Shoot
Every Tuesday Night
Begins Mar 13
Ends Aug 28
6:00 pm - 10 targets
$10 cash payout
$5 fun shoot

In order to preserve the
life of our targets on the
walk around ranges, no
person will shoot more
than 2 arrows per target.
 
 Target repair/replacement
is very time consuming
and costly.
 
This policy will extend the
life of our 3D targets so we
can continue to provide a
great shooting experience
for all our members.

About North Florida Archers

North Florida Archers (NFA) is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide an opportunity for the citizens of North Florida to participate in the sport of archery.  Directed by members in good standing, the club provides facilities for both traditional and compound archers.  Sorry no crossbows allowed!

The facility is located on approximately 45 beautifully wooded acres within the Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park.  The facility features a covered target range with targets at varying distances up to 70 yards with room for targets to 100 yards.  It also has wooded shooting trails throughout the property, which feature multiple 3D targets.

NFA facilities are open from 7:00 a.m. until dark seven days a week.  Access to the facility is controlled so that members can come and go at their leisure. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other youth groups are welcome to visit and try their hand at the sport.  Coaching is offered in the finer points of archery while emphasizing the aspects of safety.  The club can provide more information please call (904) 307-9755

NFA has a very low membership fee for individuals and families.  Membership dues are used for facility maintenance.

Club meetings are held at 6 p.m., the first Wednesday of the month (unless holidays or special events conflict), to discuss club issues and to welcome new members. All meetings are held at the club pavilion.

The club is entirely managed by its members.  Members are encouraged to volunteer for special workdays and to help with the preparations for the monthly shoots.

For further information please browse this website, stop by the club's facilities or
call the club phone at 904-254-0347

History

The US Navy, in support of the Morale Welfare and Recreation for government personnel, established North Florida Archers in 1998.  In 1990 the facility was turned over to civilians for management and control.  Approximately 2001 the facility became part of the city of Jacksonville park system.

The property includes historical elements, including a section of the “Old Brick Road” which is a part of the history of the Jacksonville area.

Location

North Florida Archers (NFA) is located within the Tillie K. Fowler Park, 7000 Roosevelt Ave, Jacksonville, Florida.  Access to the club is across the road from the Yorktown Ave. gate of the Naval Air Station-Jacksonville (NAS-JAX).
