New Date
Saturday, July 15
Fence Work Day...
A special work day will take
place to install additional fencing
at the north boundary of the
club property. This is an effort
to eliminate walkers from the
neighboring park inadvertently wandering onto our property and causing a safety concern.
If you can help, we would
appreciate your support.
 
NOTE: There will be a vote
on changes and revisions to
the club's By-Laws at the
July 5 meeting. If you want
input, be there to vote.
 
Your target fund at work!
Thanks to everyone who
donates. These donations help
us buy much needed targets.
Keep them coming!

Working Man Shoot
Every Tues Evening
6:00pm, 10 targets
Always a fun evening

 
Hello Everyone!
 
We are starting a special
donation campaign to purchase a
large African Lion target for the
club. This target will be used at
our Annual Rendezvous, the year
end Extreme Shoot and other
specialty club shoots.
 
We would like to raise a total
of $350.00 for this effort
 
As you may know, we have a
very limited budget so we need
to purchase targets when we
have an opportunity to get them
at a good discount.
 
Target discounts don't come
along often but, by chance,
we currently have such
an opportunity!
 
Any donations to this effort
will be greatly appreciated.
 
You can use the Target Donations
link to print a form which
you can drop in the club's
drop box along with your
donation or you can donate
directly to any club officer.
 
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 the limited number of targets
we can provide for the ranges
and it will continue to provide
a great shooting experience
for all 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

History

The US Navy, in support of the Morale Welfare and Recreation for government personnel, established North Florida Archers in 1988.  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).
