FRANKLIN COUNTY   ARCHERS                               

Welcome to Franklin County Archers.

 We are a South Auckland field archery club that was established in 1985, based at Stone Road Bombay, South Auckland to promote field archery as a fun family activity for all age groups. We also cater for all types of bows, with our members shooting longbows, recurve and compound bows. At present due to our target setup we are unable to cater for crossbows.

Sat is coaching day

  • Timings etc for this should be organised directly with the coaching staff. The aim of this is to provide instruction on how to conduct archery safely and provide a lead in prior to you being able to participate in field rounds.
  • Cost for coaching is as follows:
  • $10 per person for the coaching session which includes use of club targets etc
  • $10 for bow hire (no coast if you have your own gear)
  • $10 per arrow for each club arrow that is broken, damaged or lost.

Club day is every Sunday (unless there is a competition being held at the club - see competitions calandar)

Each club day runs as follows:

  • 9am for those wanting to brush up before the field round.
  • 10am is muster time for the field round, where the range officer for the day splits people into shooting groups. There is then some friendly competition  with beginners who have participated in the coaching session are invited to shoot under the guidance of the club coaches. The club also has bows and arrows available for those who don't have their own. The round lasts about 2-3 hours.
  • Following this you are welcome to go out for even more shooting.

Fees for range use are as follows:

 

  • Club member range fees - $5 per person (unless you have a concession pass)
  • Non club members with own gear - $10 per person
  • New beginners first session is free (any arrows lost/damaged $5 per arrow). Subsequent sessions $10 + arrows lost/damaged.
