HOT ‘n’ Cold Tournament, 11/15/14: Full

The HOT ‘n’ Cold tournament that is taking place on the practice range between 9am – noon, is now full. There will be limited access to the practice range at this time. The line will be run with whistles for all archers. Spectators are welcome! The field course will be fully open, as usual.

Practice Range Closed for TOTS: Saturday 9/13

This Saturday, September 13th, Buffalo Field Archery Club is hosting the penultimate TOTS tournament. TOTS is the Texas Outdoor Target Series, which has been running throughout the summer at various locations, and will culminate with the championship in Floresville on September 20th. We will have several Texas State target archery champions shooting at this event, which will be held on the practice range.

To this end, the practice range will be closed to members on Saturday, September 13th from 6am through approx 2pm. Inclement weather may extend the duration of the event. We will not have our usual “open to the public” morning, however, members will still be able to access and use the field range.

The range will be setup for the event on Friday, September 12th, with 12 FITA style targets spanning the practice range. Please do not move these targets, or shoot high powered compound bows into the FITA targets that are closer than 30m. You will have great difficulty in removing your arrows!

Thank you for understanding as we host this State event, which will provide great exposure for Buffalo Field Archery club, with many new families attending.

If you’re in the area, come along to watch the shoot, which starts at 9am for practice.

August Club Shoot

Members,

Remember … August 17th is the last scheduled shoot of the year. It will be a shotgun start at 9am. We will be giving out prizes to our board, volunteers and a few for members, so please be on hand to show your support for the hard work they all do to keep our club operating.

The two bows that are given away, will be held for the winners, but the other prizes – and there are some very nice prizes, require that the drawn member be present at the last shoot to win. If you have volunteered in the past year, your name is in the hat – once for every time you have volunteered, so don’t miss your chance at a 3D target, bow sight, quiver, stabilizer or any of the other prizes, because you missed out. This is the shoot you want to attend.

The moving target novelty will be in play, so bring some cash, and we’ll have a winner take all competition. I hope to see y’all out there tomorrow, so we can finish our 3D season with a bang.

Upcoming events this month in August

Hello BFAC members,

Please note that on Saturday, August 16th, the range will be closed all day for a private event, and will not be available to both the public and club members.

However, our club shoot for the month will be held the day after on Sunday, August 17th. We are tentatively scheduling to start registration at 8AM, followed by a shotgun start at 9AM, but the times may change depending on the weather. More information will be posted on the website as we get closer to the date of the event. As with any of the club shoots we have throughout the year, members of the public are welcome to visit the range during the shoot.

If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the setup of the course for the club shoot, please feel free to contact us to express your interest and availability for that weekend. When it comes to running these volunteer organized events, every little bit helps.

Thank you, and we hope you stay cool out there!

Shoots this weekend – June 21st and 22nd

Hello everyone,

If you’re unaware, we have back to back shoots coming up this weekend. Saturday, the 21st, will mark day one of another Shoot Your Way Across Texas (SYWAT) event. It will conclude on Sunday. This is the last TFAA sponsored field shoot, before the state championships at Eagle Lake next week. Running concurrently with the field shoot on Sunday, will be a Traditional Bowhunters of Texas (TBOT) 3D shoot, and completing the archery triple play for that day, we will be having our own monthly 3D shoot.

You can see how busy the weekend will be, so, as you might imagine, we will need help – specifically, a Friday night crew for initial set up and clean up (sure to include a Friday night fogging), a Saturday morning crew to assist with any last minute issues before the field shoot starts (drink placement, phase 2 mosquito fogging, etc), a Sunday morning crew to set up 3D targets for the day (and phase 3 fogging – you can see the fogging theme here), and, finally, some help Sunday afternoon taking the targets back down.

Please contact us with your plans and intentions for helping.

Thank y’all in advance, and remember, we are a club, not just a place to go shoot. Clubs don’t function successfully, without the support and assistance of their members. BFAC charges a very nominal fee for what members are entitled to – especially in comparison to other outdoor and indoor facilities throughout the state, but what we can’t charge you for, and what we need the most, is your time and support at times like this.

Thank you! And hopefully we’ll see you out there this weekend.
