The City of Pasadena’s Public Health Department has issued revised orders today, May 14, 2020, that allow for the re-opening of various recreational facilities, including archery ranges. The full order is available HERE.
We have received notice from the Parks and Recreation Department that they are in the process of preparing for the re-opening of the range, which should happen soon. We will update our website as soon as we receive word.
At this time, PRA does not have plans or a timeline to resume classes or tournaments, but you may soon be able to enjoy the range on your own.
Thank you and stay safe,
Your PRA Board
We have received word from City of Pasadena officials that the Lower Arroyo area, including the archery range, is closed to the public.
PRA takes the wellbeing of our members, volunteers, and visitors seriously — we all want our activities to stay safe, fun, and healthy. In response to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and the most recent advisement of local, state, and national health authorities, we are CANCELLING ALL ACTIVITIES until further notice. We are keeping close tabs on the development of the situation and advisories, and will update you with any changes here and on our social media pages.
Please note that this includes postponement of PRA’s Oak Tree 3-D Tournament that was scheduled for March 29, 2020. We will post a new date as soon as possible.
The range will continue to stay open to the public until further notice by the relevant authorities. Please remember to display your City Safety Credential while using the range.
We thank you for your understanding, support, and cooperation with our efforts to help keep PRA safe and healthy for all. We’re sending our best wishes to the PRA community and hope that we’ll get to shoot with you all soon.
