    Default Nanaimo Archery

    Hello Everyone!

    Long time.

    Is anyone here a member of the Nanaimo Fish and Game Club? I was looking to get into archery this year and I was just wondering what your thoughts are on the facilities and people. I've never shot a bow in my life so I would be looking for someone there to teach me and I have no equipment yet, lol. Life has almost settled down enough for me to start doing this, haha. Also, would be interested in rifle shooting too. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I am a member.
    The range is a pretty extensive facility although it is all outdoor.
    Nanaimo is extremely lucky to have it.
    It costs about $100/year for membership.
    You probably will need to supply all your own gear.
    The range consists of smaller clubs or groups within the main club.
    There are the target rifle guys, the blackpowder folks, the trap and skeet gang.
    Some of the schools bring the kids down by bus to utilize the archery ranges.
    I personally just use the range for pistol shooting but I have seen RCMP and the Sheriffs'service as well as some some tacticle police
    guys out on the pistol ranges.
    Competitive pistol associations also use the range.
    I recommend just driving out there on a nice day and checking it out.
    The range marshalls will be more than happy to give you a tour and answer questions.

    That is a splendid idea! I will totally go down and have a chat with them.

    Do you know how the membership works? Like is it a year from the day you buy it or is it a calendar year? Only ask because I wasn't looking to get one until the Spring. Thanks for all your help!
