Next Club Meeting

Next 3D shoot
ANNUAL EXTREME
Aug 6, 2017
 
 
Working Man Shoot
Every Tues Evening
6:00pm, 10 targets
Always a fun evening

 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
Our special work day used to
install additional fencing at the
north boundary of the club's
property has been completed... 
for now.
 
Although we could not
completely finish the  project,
we did make very good progress
in spite of the heat, bugs
heavy brush and uneven terrain.
 
A big THANK YOU goes out
to those who came out to help.

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 904-307-9755

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).
