I got a good response from Parks saying they've asked Pac. Quarry for another proposal/option.

Here are some pictures from our traditional shoot. I didn't keep score but shot pretty good.

That  has happened a couple times before ..I will send an email too .......! Only place left in the valley where we can enjoy shooting our bows .. The parks and recreation should understand more than anyone !!!  You would think !

Times in this valley are seriously changing ..They do not want us doing anything that we enjoy doing ..Used to drive in the mountains and enjoy the scenery ..hunt almost anywhere you wanted ..they are slowly shutting us down on everything ...I hear the echo of the East Coast calling me ...Come home, come home !! :dunno:

William King is the new parks and Recreation director and does not come from that background. He is retired navy as I understand. The City had been with out a director for over a year before they hired King.

My 10 year old shoots there with the 4-H JOAD group.  He also built his own longbow at the WAJAM clinic last summer.  Good luck with getting it all sorted out.

I wanted to give a big THANK YOU! To all of you who wrote the MV mayor and parks director Bill King. Our president and couple of officers meet with the mayor and King. I'm proud to report that King reported he recieved over 100 emails regaurding the club! While my name was omitted the SAB officers were asked to not inflame the situation by posting on social media. Fortunately I'm no longer an officer and can say whatever I like (but I was an officer for many years).  The mayor and King wanted the officers to sign some paperwork altering our lease. They were quite taken back at the responce of the officers. "Our lawyer has told us to sign nothing but we'll get back to you." Apparently they thought we were gona bring a knife to a gunfight or something.

If you are  a City of Mount Vernon  resident and use the course please join! Memberships are HALF PRICE! A family membership from now till the end of the year is $30 $10 of that is the initiation fee. A single membership is $25. The residents of MV vote for the mayor and city council  they pay attention.

THANK YOU! To all those who came out and shot at the club this weekend. I gave up an offering to the Archery gods on a couple of the steel targets but managed to hit the flying pig and the mosquito.  It was a little warm but I got my shooting in early.

I'll keep you all posted for next year's shoots after the WSAA convention in october.

I wanted give an update as to our wrangling with the City parks department.  We have agreed upon a deal that has minimal impact on our course. We will only need to move 2 targets slightly. This deal came about  after much wrangling with the City. Several attempts were made by Bill King and the city to get the club to enter agreements that would undermine our legal lease. Fortunately  we were able to assess the quality of character we were dealing with and made sure we did nothing without our lawyer. While it cost us come $ we are in a good position till the end of our lease. Another 5years or so.

We are upping our game at Silver Arrow to do more community outreach so that more Mount Vernon residents know of the service we provide...

Just want to bump this up. New year so we are all renewing memberships. $10 initiation $30 single $40 family. I've been a member for over 10 years and I don't think you can join a better Archery club especially for the price! Our first Club meeting is tonight  at 7pm.

A few picks from the shoot and tear down. Good to see Drock out on the course. We had a good turnout for the weekend, and it was our first marked yardage shoot. People seemed to like it so we will likely do more in the future.

We also had the Matthew's bow out  selling tickets for the MV PD offer that was shot. I heard they sold some more tickets. If you want one Call or visit Riverside Archery  in Mount Vernon.
