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.
This weekend’s Texas Shootout Tournament on the Texas A& M campus is a qualifying round for the 2016 US Olympic team, and PRA members Steve Sun, Katherine Marston and Nicole Zhang were among the competitors. Marston and Zhang competed in the Cadet Division; it was the first Olympic qualifying competition for both.
Steve Sun, in addition to competing in the Men’s Recurve Division, is one of the coaches of PRA’s competitive JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development) team.
The Traditional Tournament is a field archery tournament for archers using traditional bows — bows that use the more traditional feel of wood, leather, and feathers. The 2015 “Trad Tournament” will be held on Sunday, October 18. We have shutdown online registration because of server issues but on site registration will be available on Sunday morning – we still have plenty of spaces available.
Shortly after 2AM Tuesday morning, the Pasadena City Council voted 5-3 in favor of the PRA and the new deal points. What’s more, the council removed the language we opposed (item #4) and amended language to instruct the city manager to find “additional” locations for archery in Pasadena instead of “alternative”. All language mentioning the possibility of eliminating archery use of the range on weekdays has been eliminated.
We couldn’t have asked for more.
We owe this victory to all of our passionate supporters!
Last night nearly 200 people descended on Pasadena City Hall to stand up with the PRA and protect archery in the Lower Arroyo.
With nearly 4000 petition signatures, over 100 letters, and roughly 200 post cards, the archery supporters made it very clear to everyone on the council what this range means to the community.
Thank you all! We are proud to still be able to say…
“We’ll see you on the Range!”
