New England’s Premier Archery Club

About Us

New England’s premier archery club, Algonquin Archers is located on 25 wooded acres in Woodbury, CT since 1957. Our facilities offer a 10 lane 20 yard indoor range, an outdoor practice range from 10 to 60 yards, a broadhead practice butt, a long range practice butt out to 90M, a full 14 station Field Course, and a 30 station 3D course. There are elevated platforms on the course that simulate shooting from a treestand.

   Algonquin Archers is a private club, members have full access to everything on the property and are allowed to bring guests on a limited basis. We are not open to the general public, except when advertised public tournaments are being held. You can email us through the contact page anytime if you are interested in applying for a membership.


We support a diversified group of archers ranging from Nationally competitive archers, hardcore bowhunters, traditional enthusiasts, and everything in between. We are Chartered members of the IBO, the NFAA and the CAA. We sponsor an After School Archery Program as well as a JOAD (Junior Olympic Archery Development) program for local youth archers. Family participation encouraged.

A cash prize drawing is taken at each monthly meeting. If a members name is drawn and is not present at the meeting, that member will not receive the prize. A member must be present to win. Peter Pierre was drawn at the June 2019 meeting but was not present, thus he did not win the $120 cash prize. Next month the prize will be reset to $130

WORK HOURS

There is always a great need for volunteers to handle the large variety of work activities that are necessary to keep the club, it`s property, and it`s activities in operation.

The club has a program where members can receive a $10/hr credit, for a maximum of 5 hrs, $50,that will apply towards their next dues payment in the following Fiscal year, which is in the month of June.  
Frank Czajkowski, gundoglover@sbcglobal.net,, must be contacted in order to, record any work hours that a member has performed, to keep a total of a members work hours, and to assure the proper credit is applied.  

*BE ALERT----SAFETY FIRST

As an archery club, we are very fortunate to have 3 outdoor courses on our property: 3-D, Field, and Knock-a-Block. All members need to remember that multiple archers , can be out on any of the 3 courses, at any given time. Safety always comes first.

Also, for your awareness, you may see hunters on the property. Do not be alarmed, as these are club members that have permission to bow hunt deer and turkey.

Have fun, but Stay Alert, and be aware of other shooters at all times.
