Morley Field Archery Range Work Party

Sunday, July 26th, 2020

7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.

This work party is required to bring the range within city code requirements.  Your assistance is needed and greatly appreciated.

Hello Archers of San Diego!

Please join us for a work party on 26 July at Morley Field.  We will focus on bringing the range within city code requirements so we can keep it open to the public.

Start time is early (before it gets too hot): 7:00 a.m. (or as early as you can make it)

Supplies & tools (If you have them, we appreciate it when you can bring your own but will have a limited amount available if you don’t.)

  • Facial covering to adhere to the social distancing.  We expect everyone can maintain the six foot separation but if you can’t we ask that you wear a mask.  Thank you!
  • Gloves and eye protection
  • Recommend long pants and long sleeve shirts
  • Sunblock

We’ll be picking up debris that was cleared between the old and new fence lines, old bale material, branches, rocks, etc….

Make sure you get your name on the sign up list so we can give you credit for being at the work party.  We’ve also got some other great ideas to entice your participation!

 

Thanks everyone!  We really appreciate your help.
