Hey Pasadena are you looking for a new hobby?
Day 358 of 365 Things To Do in Pasadena™ may have just found one for you!
Thanks to Hollywood and movies like Robin Hood, Lord of The Rings, and 300 we have seen some amazing things done with a bow and arrow.
Have you ever wanted to give archery a try?
If you said YES than the Pasadena Roving Archers are at your service!
Pasadena Roving Archers has been “dedicated to the art of the bow and arrow in the Lower Arroyo Seco since 1935.” Incorporated as a non-profit organization, our membership includes men, women, young adults and children. PRA is home to beginners, weekend enthusiasts, regional, state, national and international champions and maybe a future Olympic Gold medal winner. All are bound together by the sport of archery. The club invites membership from everyone in the archery community.
PRA members provide hundreds of hours of volunteer service to maintain the range facilities and provide archery instruction to archers from 8 to 80. All of the PRA archery instructors have been certified by the National Archery Association. They have taken courses and passed tests on range safety and archery coaching techniques. Archery classes at the PRA range are a great way to get started in archery, learn new skills, meet great people and participate in friendly competition.
PRA has been the recipient of a grant from the Los Angeles Athletic Foundation to support our educational efforts for youth archery. The primary funding for the club’s activities are through member dues, shooting fees and donations. –Information provided by Pasadena Roving Archers.
