Manawatu Archery Club
The Manawatu Archery Club (M.A.C.) aims to promote the joy of Target Archery and welcomes Recurve, Compound, Longbow and Crossbow archers of all levels and ages. It is affiliated to and encourages its members to join in Provincial (WAA) and National (ANZ) competition.
The Manawatu Archery Club’s Outdoor Range is a full-sized outdoor range facility based at Totara Road (Awapuni) in Palmerston North that can accommodate up to 13 targets or 39 archers and allows shooting distance of up to 90m.
Our club’s room is at the Riverdale Scout Hall and can also be used for shooting at short range (up to 13m) and paper tuning. It is also usually where M.A.C.’S Beginners courses are held.
Beginner’s Course in Archery
The Manawatu Archery Club’s Beginner course is designed to teach you how to shoot a target recurve (Olympic style) bow and how to enjoy the sport of archery safely.
All gear is provided during the 4 x 2 hours sessions, which are typically held on Wednesdays at 6pm at the Riverdale Scout Hall.
For safety reasons, beginner archers who want to join the Club must go through a beginners training session before they can be allowed to be members. The charge for the entire course is currently set at $65 (2014 – 2105).
- Adults, children, students and families are all welcome.
- Minimum age for the beginner’s course is 10 years old.
- Children under 13 must be supervised by a parent/guardian at all times.
