At the Balboa Park Rube Powell Archery Range

Entry Fee:
$5  for Active-Duty Military

Shotgun start at 9 am, with registration from 7:30-8: 45 am
Group sizes will be no less than 3 and no more than 6, so don’t plan on waiting for a group of 12 to shoot at a target. If you are a solo shooter, we will put you in with a good group.
