FITA Practice Range at Ben Avery Shooting Facility
receives a facelift!
If you haven’t already
been out to the practice range at Ben Avery, be sure
to stop by the next time you are on site. The range
recently received a new look from Eagle Scout
candidate Colt Van Patter who took on the
FITA Practice Range as his Eagle Scout Service
Project. Colt, along with 22 volunteers over three
days, worked tirelessly to give this range a much
These volunteers moved
rocks to widen the range, pulled weeds, raked and
groomed the area, and installed a permanent shooting
line. In addition, the old carpet bales and metal
stands were moved to the broadhead side of the range
and new regulation target stands were constructed to
replace the old ones.
Six used target bales
purchased and donated by ASAA and Desert Sky Archers
have been placed on the new target stands to create
a regulation range for target archers to practice.
In the coming weeks,
Colt intends to place “diapers” on each of the
targets and insert wind flags.
This project was made
possible by donations from a number of
