The Arizona Game & Fish Department announced the recipients of their 2016 Shooting Range Development Grants. We are happy to say that The City of Phoenix Parks & Recreation Department was awarded a grant for $30,000 to assist with range improvements at the Papago Park Archery Range.
A huge Thank You goes out to Dennis Mowery & Glenn Liptack for their hard work in assisting the Phoenix Parks Department with the grant proposal submission. The entire PAA Board is excited about what this means for the range, our club members and the public.
There are still huge fundraising efforts that will be needed to see all of the range improvement projects (shade canopies, safety signage & raising the berm) come to fruition. Stay tuned for more details on ways you can help Papago Archery Association and the Phoenix Parks Department raise the remaining funds needed.
The registration for the Papago 900 Halloween Shoot will be closing this week. There are only a few spots still open in the following divisions.
3 Yeoman spots open (recurve, barebow or compound)
1 Cadet Recurve or Barebow
1 Cadet Compound
2 Junior/Senior/Master Compound
Current Registration List & Tentative Lane Assignments have been updated as of today.

Papago Archery Association club members came together this morning for a much needed service project at the range. The equipment containers were in desperate need of some sprucing up! Thankfully, the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation helped with the preparation by pressure washing the containers in advance.
The painting crew was ready to give the containers a facelift with all the necessary supplies donated by PAA. Coach Kevin handled the paint sprayer like a pro and got the job done in record time.
Now, both containers share the same color and blend in beautifully with the natural landscape of the surrounding Papago Park.
Thanks to our club membership, Papago 900 registrants, and other donors for supporting the Papago Park Archery Range improvements!
