BASF Indoor Range Improvements and Fee Update:

The BASF indoor archery range features 18 and 25 meters distances, space for 26 world archery shooting positions, air-conditioning and bright lighting.  Recently indoor restrooms have been added to the facility.  The range has ten BASF provided target matts.  Additional targets, sound systems, timers and other equipment can provide by user groups or the ASAA.

In the past event hosts paid $125 for a single day port a let rental.  Rental of two port a lets for two days with service is about $300.  A hand wash station is an additional cost.  Beginning January 2012, the facility rental is $75 for a five hour half day and $150 for a full day.   (BASF Letter)  The per archer per day range use fee remains the same.

“Parents are much more willing to bring their children to archery programs that have air conditioning, comfortable seating and indoor plumbing. Indoor plumbing was the final hurdle for the BASF indoor facility to host top flight events.  Spectators, family, friends as well as archers and staff will also appreciate the improvements”  Bob Pian, Arizona State Archery Association.

All are welcome to reserve to use the range for all target archery program needs.  Contact the Ben Avery Shooting Facility to register as a BASF user group or collaborate with an existing BASF target archery user group such as Desert Sky Archers and the Arizona JOAD Association.

2011 Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic hosted by Longbow Golf Club


Learn more about the AJGA at http://www.ajga.org/microsites/index3.asp?TN=201116

Longbow Golf invited the Arizona JOAD Clubs community to conduct a "Give Archery a Try” event for the AJGA golfers, a collaboration that began in 2003 and and has been an ongoing tradition that is a fun event for all. 

2003 story: http://www.azjoad.com/azjoad2003/2003_LongbowGolf.htm

2004 story: http://www.azjoad.com/2004azjoad/2004_azjoad_longbow_golf.htm

This year Paseo Vista Archery Club JOADs (Rachel, Arde, Yasmin, Danielle)  and club parents and supporters  (Saaid, David, Bob) were organized by Paseo parent and Arizona JOAD Co-Coordinator Sandra Reynolds.

Four target buttresses, stands, wind flags, new 122 target faces, a dozen light bows, bow stands, arrows and ground quivers were transported via three volunteer utility vehicles.  Equipment set up included targets at  5 to 10 meters on the east side of the Longbow driving range .  The volunteers were dressed smartly in Paseo Vista and archery polo shirts in keeping with the equally sharply dressed Junior  golfers.  It’s great to have the youth archers “teach” the Junior golfers.  There was a steady flow of golfers wanting to give archery a try. 

The process was as follows: 

Golfer were given an arm guard and a bow and taken to the shooting line and shown how to shoot.

Golfer shot  6 to 12 arrows.

The “staff” retrieved the arrows.

The event is a highlight of the AJGA tournament tour and is a great experience and fund raiser for the Arizona JOAD community.


Good Friday, the Heather Farr Classic typically takes place over Easter weekend.

3:30 Pick up equipment at PVAC  

4:15 Set up at Longbow Golf

5:00 Give archery a try event begins

7:15 Event concludes

7:30 Return to PVAC

8:00 Equipment put away at PVAC.
