The City of Pasadena now requires that archers who use the Lower Arroyo Archery Range participate in a range safety course and be issued a City Safety Certification card.
The Pasadena Roving Archers have developed the safety curriculum, and will be teaching it on the first Saturday of every month from 8am to 10am. Signups are being done online using the form below.
The City Safety Certification course will familiarize archers with the range rules, target layout, and safe archery practices that will be expected of archers on the range. Please arrive 15 minutes early for check-in and bring any archery equipment that you would like our instructors to review. Equipment review is not a requirement; simply a courtesy being offered by the PRA.
At the conclusion of your course, the PRA will submit your info to the City of Pasadena. The City will send you your new City Safety Certification Card shortly after. All archers must carry a card while on the Lower Arroyo Archery Range from sunrise to sunset on Monday through Friday, and from 2:30pm to sunset on weekends.
For additional information about the new laws and enforcement, please contact the Pasadena Police Department or Pasadena Roving Archers.
The 2017 PRA Award Banquet be held in the Mediterranean Room of the Brookside Golf Club (adjacent to the Rose Bowl) on February 18th, 2017. RSVP by February 4.
