Information for the Public
One-Way Park Roads Inside the Gate
Public visitors planning to drive in during the open gate hours of 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays should be aware that you will be driving for about one mile on a one way narrow road.
Please observe the one-way restrictions on park roads, and drive with caution as there are bicycles and foot traffic sharing the road with the vehicles. Bicyclists and pedestrians expect one-way only traffic and there have been potentially unsafe encounters. Please always go out the one-way road up through the disc golf course.
Range Closures for Work Parties and Club Events
Santa Cruz Archers depends on member contributions to maintain the range. We schedule a monthly work party, weather permitting, scheduled on the first Saturday after the first Tuesday of every month (i.e., after the Club Membership meeting, which is the first Tuesday of every month). The work party is from 9:00 am to approximately 1:00 pm. We also schedule additional work parties from time to time as the need arises. Scheduled work parties are on the calendar to the right.
The outdoor range will be closed during work parties. A sign will be posted in a prominent location announcing the range closure. Although work parties are outside of the times the gate is open for public access, it does affect members of the public who walk into the range.
RANGE CLOSED SIGNS – If you encounter a “Range Closed” sign for half or all of the outdoor course, please observe and do not enter. Work parties have the right to do this to ensure everyone’s safety.
Work parties are usually in the mornings on Saturdays. Members should make themselves aware that the club holds work parties on Saturdays at least once a month between 9:00am – 12 noon, usually the first Saturday after a club meeting. If you show up during that time you might want to join the work party!
Whether a Club member or a member of the public, please do not come to the range during scheduled work parties unless you are part of the work party, or are a member and wish to shoot at the indoor range.
Event Range Closures
For our major 3-D events (3D in the Redwoods, Beat the Heat, and Bad Boys of Branciforte) the outdoor range is typically closed starting the Saturday before the event for event setup. The range is also closed on Sunday, the day of the event, to everyone except event participants.
The outdoor practice range next to the clubhouse will remain open, but the 28 target outdoor range will be closed.
There may be additional shoots during the year that require partial or complete range closure.
For all range closures to to events, we will post a notice at the top of this page with specific dates and times for the closure.
Members and guests are not allowed to conduct group lessons outdoors, or group or individual lessons indoors, without prior approval from the Santa Cruz Archers Board of Directors or vote of the membership. Authorized instructors are subject to the rules and conditions set by the Board for holding lessons at the range.
