In addition to all the work of operating and building the park, the Sandhills Archery club has a number
of annual shoots. These shoots help to raise money for building and improving
The first indoor shoot of the year is scheduled the first weekend on the new year which is a 3-D at the
indoor park. Next is the Annual 300 shoot at the park. February brings the Annual Playmaker Bowhunters Shootout. March
brings the Twin Arrows Shoot at the West Fargo Veterans Memorial Arena featuring a number of moving 3-D animal targets. A
special area is set up for the kids to shoot their own 10-target course.
One of the most popular and well-known shoots is the Bowhunters Rendezvous, which takes place in August
at the Sandhills Outdoor Archery Park. This event has the great world famous
fish fry on Saturday evening. Archers travel many miles to participate in this
shoot which precedes the hunting season opening in September.
Other events include the Wednesday evening social gathering with free hot dogs or whatever we happen to
be able to provide during the summer months. An annual Appreciation Dinner is
held in the picnic area for those who have donated time, material and equipment for the property.The Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts as well as other
youth groups, on request, are taught about the sport of archery with a presentation about the equipment, the art of archery
shooting and hunting and then given a hands on experience with equipment provided by the Club.
