While We Wait

Well, folks, as you know we will have to wait until next year for the archery range to re-open.  I know, let out that big disappointing sigh.  However, in the meantime, I’ve talked Don Rabska, Vice President – Easton Foundations and he told me some interesting range facts and figures.  Easton Foundations built the old archery range in 1983.  Now, they are fully funding the construction of the new range.  We owe a lot of thanks to the Easton Foundations who have supported archery in Los Angeles for the past 33 years.

The old range was only 30 meters long and 30’ wide.  The LA Parks have expanded the number of ranges to 4 in all.  The distances of the ranges are 10-meters, 18-meters, 30-meters and 50-meters long.  All but the 10-meter range are all 38’ wide.  The 10-meter range is 50’ wide creating a bigger space for beginner classes and warming up.

The LA Parks and Recreation (not to be confused with the TV show), sent me photos to share with you on the progress of the range.  Hopefully, this eases some of the pain.

  1. Thanks for the update! Everything is looking really good. This range will totally be a great place to practice archery. Kudos to Easton Foundation.
    P.S. I see my disco ball idea was replaced with skylights 😀

  2. When is the anticipated open date?

  3. I was just wondering if there is any update on the reconstruction. I’ve been so excited to see the new range. There hasn’t really been any word from you guys.
