Shoots this weekend – June 21st and 22nd

Hello everyone,

If you’re unaware, we have back to back shoots coming up this weekend. Saturday, the 21st, will mark day one of another Shoot Your Way Across Texas (SYWAT) event. It will conclude on Sunday. This is the last TFAA sponsored field shoot, before the state championships at Eagle Lake next week. Running concurrently with the field shoot on Sunday, will be a Traditional Bowhunters of Texas (TBOT) 3D shoot, and completing the archery triple play for that day, we will be having our own monthly 3D shoot.

You can see how busy the weekend will be, so, as you might imagine, we will need help – specifically, a Friday night crew for initial set up and clean up (sure to include a Friday night fogging), a Saturday morning crew to assist with any last minute issues before the field shoot starts (drink placement, phase 2 mosquito fogging, etc), a Sunday morning crew to set up 3D targets for the day (and phase 3 fogging – you can see the fogging theme here), and, finally, some help Sunday afternoon taking the targets back down.

Please contact us with your plans and intentions for helping.

Thank y’all in advance, and remember, we are a club, not just a place to go shoot. Clubs don’t function successfully, without the support and assistance of their members. BFAC charges a very nominal fee for what members are entitled to – especially in comparison to other outdoor and indoor facilities throughout the state, but what we can’t charge you for, and what we need the most, is your time and support at times like this.

Thank you! And hopefully we’ll see you out there this weekend.

Pray Hard, Fight Hard, Shoot Hard

Donny Hughes, a member and long time supporter of the club, was recently diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing treatment. West Houston Archery and Buffalo Field Archery are honored to be hosting a benefit shoot for our good friend.

Saturday June 28, 2014
9:00am Shotgun Start
$30.00 Entry Fee – 30 target 3D course

Join us in showing support and prayer in his ongoing fight. We will have a swap meet style bargain table set up if you have any new or slightly used archery equipment you are interested in donating to help raise funds for Donny. Novelty shoots will include a known yardage course, long shot, and some other fun and challenging events.

For any questions, please feel free to reach out and contact us.

CANCELLED – Texas Outdoor Target Series (TOTS) this Saturday

Hello all,

Due to the recent amount of heavy rain in the past few days, the Texas Outdoor Target Series this Saturday has been cancelled. The rain has caused a large amount of standing water in several places, including the parking area and practice range where the tournament is to be held. With more rain in the forecast, and a flood warning in effect for Houston through tomorrow night, the decision has been made to cancel the event.

Apologies for the inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.

Range closed Saturday May 31 until 3PM

Hi BFAC members,

Please be advised that this Saturday we are hosting a Texas Outdoor Target Series (TOTS) event at Buffalo Field Archery club, and the practice range will be unavailable between 7 AM and 3 PM.

Also, the course setup will take place Thursday, so access may be limited at times that day as well. You may notice the large round targets on the range between Thursday and Saturday; please do not move these targets.

The field course will be available during this time, so you will be able to shoot all the same distances that you could on the practice range; in addition, most of the practice range is shaded!

Thanks,
The BFAC Board

SYWAT and Club 3D Shoot this weekend – Volunteers needed

Hello BFAC,

This weekend we will be hosting a dual shoot; SYWAT on the field course and 3D shoot on our 3D course.  SYWAT will be a California start both Saturday and Sunday at 8 AM; the club 3D shoot will be a 9 AM shotgun start both days as well, with trad shooters starting early if ready.

We need volunteers to either help set up the course Friday evening, or if not enough people respond, to set up the course early Saturday morning (7 AM) , and then we’ll need a little help Sunday morning to get ready again and then Sunday afternoon after the club 3D shoot.  If you can help, please contact us. If we don’t have enough volunteers, we will ONLY set the SYWAT course Saturday, and will need normal club help Sunday to set the 3D course.
Please also note: we will lock the gate at 4 PM Saturday, and the gate will be opened Sunday at about 7 AM.  And as usual, the gates will be open to the public during the entire event.
Thanks,
BFAC board
