Operating as usual
Greetings Woodley Park Archers.
This is a PSA to remind everyone EVERYONE using the range is responsible for safety. This includes acts of vandalism, and especially includes acts of vandalism that cause unsafe situations.
For example, today, someone cut the banding at the 20 yd bale and toppled one of them over. This creates an unsafe situation for that bale for any Archer who wants to use it. Every Archer can call the police and report suspicious activity, including vandalism and safety issues.
The number for the police that respond quickly to our issues on on the long range rules signs. You do not need to engage the vandals if you feel unsafe doing so, but you should call the Park Police: (213) 978-4600.
Please do your part to keep the range safe, to keep the range clean and operational, and thereby keep the range free and open to the public.
As a side reminder, masks are not optional; whether or not you believe in thebefficacy of masks, if we want the range to stay open we must wear them. If Rec and Parks or the Army Corps of Engineers decides archers are a risk, they can and will shut the range down.
Some great stretch band exercises for your legs, glutes and hip flexors. These will lead to greatly improved core strength and stability in your shooting stance! Coach Wayne - Accurate Archery
9 WAYS TO USE A MINI-BAND FOR YOUR GLUTES!
TRUTH: If you DO MORE for your butt, it will do more for you.
Your glutes do more for you than give you a cushion to to sit on, but if you don't ever work them appropriately then you develop what is known as GLUTE AMNESIA.
Glute amnesia occurs when your glutes literally FALL ASLEEP. This means that they won't:
- extend your hip & leg
- rotate your knee & ankle
- swing you leg outward
- drive you out of the bottom of squat
- control your knee as foot hits the ground
Of course, this doesn't mean you can't do those things, it just means you use other muscles. We call this compensation and that is NOT GOOD!
USE these NINE DRILLS and avoid a sleepy butt!

Interesting tidbit of archery history that led to a huge leap forward in archery equipment with the advent of the aluminum arrow shaft. And that led to the development of the finest competition arrows ever manufactured! And Easton Aluminum was for many decades a Van Nuys, California based company!
For our new followers.....Did you know how our founder, Doug Easton, became interested in the sport of archery? 🏹 It is one of life’s great paradoxes that adversity often gives birth to opportunity. As a very young man, Doug Easton severely injured both legs when, during a hunting excursion, a shotgun leaning against a car fell and discharged. While spending a year in the hospital recuperating, a friend gifted him Dr. Saxton Pope’s book, Hunting With The Bow and Arrow. He then decided when he had sufficiently recovered he would try and make some hunting bows and arrows in his garage according to the directions provided in Dr. Pope’s Book.
How were you introduced to archery? 👇

What a great workday today! Thank you so much to all the fantastic and dedicated members and friends of Woodley Park Archers who worked for hours today to get the job done.
We thoroughly cleaned our service yard and removed and replaced the bale stands and bales on the long range. We have added bales at 5 meters, 20, 30 and 40 yards, and added additional bales at a number of distances. We only have remaining, replacing the 3 bales at 90m.
The long range continues to be divided into two sections, the East Range (short distances) and the West range (long distances)
separated by a 40 foot wide safety margin.
Please help take care of our new bales by remembering to use target backing and pads.
We hope everyone is enjoying the newly reopened short range! Thank you so much to all the awesome club volunteers and members for all the hard work on the short range!
This is our temporary design until our new structure is approved by Recreation and Parks Department and can then be rebuilt.
A reminder if you shoot on the short range and lose an arrow behind the bales, PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE SERVICE YARD TO RETRIEVE IT. THIS IS DANGEROUS!
Ask a club instructor or Coach for assistance or if noone is around, send us an email and picture of it and will will recover it and notify you. Many arrows are being recovered! We are no longer putting found arrows in the Lost and Found tube on the short range as they are being stolen. This include arrows lost on the long range!
We have also begun bale replacement on our Long Range starting with our shorter distances. Please be patient while work is in progress. Watch for dates of upcoming work party notices here and on Instagram to come out and help take care of our range!
We are about 4 bales stands short for today's project. We will add the other 4bstands early next week. Please consider helping out on the 24th at 9am when we do the rest of the bales stands on the long range.
Special thanks to Nicole, Scott, Carlo, Igor, and Kirill for volunteering!
New distances and quantities:
There is now one 5m bale stand for little kids and short form bale practice. Priority is for little kids who are not strong enough to shoot 10m; if you are using it, please surrender this bale to kids if you see them struggling at 10m.
We have added 2 bales to the 10m line.
The 20m has now become 18m since 20 is not a competition distance.
We are adding extra bales at the 18m to have more therebthan used to be when it was 20m.
See you all on the 24th!
Short range is done for now! Until we get the wall rebuild approved, anyhow. Next project: LONG RANGE!!!
This Friday, October 9th st 9am, a few of us will be working on the 10m section of the long range. That means the 20 and 10m will be closed while we work, until we are done, NO EXCEPTIONS. If anyone wants to help us, feel free to come down! Bring gloves!
We had some delays so we cannot open the short range today afterall. However, it is almost ready and we will try to open this weekend or very early next week!
The Short Range is almost ready for reopening! Eight temp bale stands are up on the short range. We will band and saturate them on Friday!
The shooting line will be limited to 8 archers at a time to maintain social distancing. Masks will be required
Special thanks to Heath Hammond and Joseph Deese of The Livery Warbow Shop for helping us unload and setup!
