Help Papago Archery Association raise the needed funds to improve the Papago Archery Range. PAA will be hosting the Shoot Your Heart Out tournament on
February 13th, 2016. (This tournament is being rescheduled to a date in March 2016.) All proceeds from this tournament will go toward the following range improvements:
- Construct a metal canopy over the shooting line for 21 lanes, 145’, to provide shade for archers,
- Raise the berm at the end of the Range for added safety, and
- Add signage at the Range for safety rules, and around the range to notify archers and hikers/bikers of possible dangers.
For more information about the Papago Range Improvement Project please see the link on our website. We hope you’ll consider supporting our fundraising efforts even if you’re not able to participate in the fun shoot. Donations can be accepted here and are tax deductible.
