New England’s Premier Archery Club
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.

June is the start of our fiscal year. Membership renewals are due at this time.This year the renewals will be sent out as hard-copy via the postal system. It was determined that this should avoid anyone missing the notice for renewal. Also, hard-copy membership cards will be sent to everyone as their membership is renewed. Members who wish to pay at a monthly meeting, rather than through the mail, may do so.
Chuck Brush and Jason Syman are working on producing a triathlon shoot for this year. The course will consist of a full 300 round, seven marked distance field targets and ten 3D targets. It is thought that there will be a $10.00 entry fee, and another fee, for those who want to shoot for a cash pot. Details will be forthcoming as the event is formulated and scheduled.

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.
