Any inquiries concerning the pending tree removal in the Lower Arroyo should be directed to the City of Pasadena. This removal has nothing to do with the operation of the archery range. Pasadena Roving Archers received the same notification via the signs below that other users of the Lower Arroyo received.

Every year we partner with Pasadena Fire Department and ABC 7 to collect new unwrapped toys, or sports equipment or donations of money for toys. All monetary donations will be used to purchase toys. This year our collection box will be on the range on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th December 8am – 12pm. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for under-served children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally. Please remember to bring a donation with you if you are visiting the range.
We will be open on Saturday December 26th 2015 and Saturday January 2nd 2016. Many of our volunteer staff will be spending time with their families so our class capacity may be limited.
The archery range is on the agenda for the Pasadena City Council meeting on MONDAY (February 2). The item is scheduled for 8:00 PM. We really need a strong turnout from YOU, our supporters of the archery range.
The city council meets in room S249 of the Pasadena City Hall, 100 North Garfield Avenue.
The proposal being put before the City Council includes a very troubling element, asking the City Council to:
“Direct the City Manager to work with the Pasadena Roving Archers and residents to pursue the identification of a suitable alternate site for archery activity in order to allow the southern range in the Lower Arroyo to be used for passive recreational uses on weekdays and roving archery on weekends”
This would seem to open the door to declare that, for example, a much smaller target archery range is a suitable substitute for the historic Lower Arroyo Archery Range. Limiting archery in the Lower Arroyo to weekends only is the first step towards eliminating it entirely. Exactly what our opponents want.
The complete proposal is available as part of the meeting agenda available here (scroll down to item #13).
