It’s time to renew your membership!

It’s that time of year when membership renewals are due for the 1st of the year, and the gate code will be changed and sent out to our renewing members.

We, the board of directors, at Buffalo Field Archery Club, have been listening to feedback and working hard to make BFAC the best that it can be for our members. With that in mind, we have implemented a new membership strategy that will enable us to continue improving, and allow our members to take some ownership and really feel part of the club.

2015 membership fees have a new tier, which provides members with the option to volunteer with club needs – or not! We recognize that not everyone has the time to assist with the many needs of our volunteer driven club, so you can opt in or out. If you are not able to volunteer, the membership fee is $200. If you are able to commit to helping out just two times in the year, the membership fee is $130.

This new structure will allow you to choose the areas in which you would like to volunteer, and the committee leader for that particular area will contact you to get you on the schedule at a mutually convenient time. By the way… you can volunteer as many times as you would like during the year. You are not limited to just two times! Your involvement will also give you a better understanding of how the club operates, and opens up avenues for new ideas to be considered.

With all that said, don’t delay, renew today! Just go to the Join BFAC page to make your payment.

Thank you for being a part of what makes Buffalo Field Archery Club the premier outdoor archery facility in Texas!

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!
