If its been a few years your in for a treat. In rebuilding our course we replaced all 4 of the bridges that cross carpenter creek. We both made the course safer AND added so many targets. If your booking you can shoot all 50 targets in about 2.5 hours.

We do sponsor a 4h shooting group they meet at 6pm on Tuesdays. 2 groups advanced and beginner. We support about 60 kids in that program. It is near full capacity.  We also sponsor a NASP program for home schoolers.

It is true that ANYONE can shoot our course for $2 shoot ALL DAY. We operate on the honor system. So encourage others to pay the way... Our members put in approx 2k man hours a year keeping the club going and putting on events.

Spread the word about our club. We are just 3 miles off I5. We have members from Ferndale to Everett. Come shoot our club and you won't be disappointed.

I might also add that the club has hosted several Hunters ED programs. Both the traditional WDFW ones, and one of our members has put on a couple classes of the International Bow hunters Education Foundation program that is certification in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and Europe.

We had 211 people at the WSAA multicolor this weekend.We had full lines sat from 7am till 9pm and 7am-5pm today... That doesn't include the NASP lines we had on Thursday to keep room for everyone. Doug, Larry (the new president), Ren, Connie and several others did a great job taking care of people.

Tomorrow evening at 6:30 were are starting Flint Rounds in the club house. 2nd and 4th Monday evening of each month. Flint rounds are an indoor game where you shoot 20 yards and closer up to 4 yards at 2 different target sizes. Its a great way to meet fellow bowmen, and get great practice on your form for shooting. I was a member for 3 years before i participated because i'm a hunter first, and not a "paper puncher". I can tell you it helped my shooting so much I make sure i do it every year now. Come check us out. Membership is cheap and if you just want to come check it out its only $2 per person.

We had a workparty this weekend to prepare for out Bucks Bulls and Boars 3D next weekend. I didnt make it out on the course. Our 20yard target was getting hammered so hard we needed to do something about it. We made and placed a double butt and had to move the other targets aound to make better use of the space. Come check out our 3 D next weekend.

Last Night We had our "End of the Year Banquet" It was about a month later than normal. This is/was a members only Dinner where the Club supplied the Prime Rib Cooked by One of our Members Doug who never lets us down when we need some meat. He smoked the prime rib, and as usual it was awesome! We gave out some awards in addition to our potluck dinner, No shooting at this event just a chance for some good company and a great meal.

We usually have 3 potlucks a year Where the club supplies the Meat and drinks, many people bring in game that they have shot, or fish they have caught.  Our Thanksgiving and Christmas Potlucks we have shooting games for the adults and kids. If you buy a family membership and attend all 3 functions you will nearly get your dues back in the meat you eat!

Come Join us at the club house tomorrow night for some indoor shooting. the 2nd and 4th Monday at 6:30 till...8-9pmi*censored*s open and we shoot an indoor game called Flint rounds. Its fun and great practice. Hope to see you there!

The walk thru course at Silver Arrow is awesome and it is just down the hill from the house.  Silver Arrow and the range at kenmore have the best walk thru's. imo :tup: :tup:

I love it because its on my way home from work... easy to shoot one of the 15 target loops and head home, or play around on the flat range some.

The Club is preparing for the 4/12-4/13 WSAA Safari Shoot.
A Safari Shoot it a paper target shoot with marked yardages. The bulls eye is marked with an orange dot of varing size depending on the distance. This is the first time Silver Arrow will be holding the State Safari shoot. Until recently our course would not accomodate the safari shoot because there are specific yardages  that must be shot in a group. there are 2 groups of targets the feild target, your more standard looking bullsey target, and the animal targets. Here is a basic explanation of the shoot.

Please take a few min to do this survey. We are NOT listed as on of their activities but pleas write us in under "others". Silver Arrow Rents our land from the Parks department and this Survey will remind them that our club provides a valuable community service.

MOUNT VERNON- The update of the Parks and Recreation Department Comprehensive Plan is underway. Mayor Jill Boudreau and Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Director Larry Otos are seeking your input. A quick, 5-7 minute survey has been created as a way for you to help guide the Department, and the City, in future decision making. All responses are confidential and will reflect your views and feelings about Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation facilities, programs, and events. We are looking forward to hearing from all of you!

The survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MVPR2014

Silver Arrow Hosted the WSAA Safari Field shoot this last weekend. We had 168 shooters! Parking was tight but many had a great time. This was the first time Silver Arrow has held the Safari in memory. This was a fantastic turn out and great practice for Redding in CA. I know those who set up the course tried to make this as close a warm up for that shoot as possible.


I have also heard the rumor that We MAY be hosting the WSAA Field shoot. Darrington Archers were scheduled to host the event, however given the Slide at OSO It may be Moved to SAB... Keep tuned for more info.
