Big Valley is on target to gaining an archery range right here in the village. Earlier this year, Big Valley’s Bust Out Rodeo Association generously set aside an area at their newly developed outdoor rodeo grounds to set up an archery range. With the prospect of forming a club, a few local volunteers began work to bring the idea to life. Startup funds have been secured and a recently donated storage “shed” has been overhauled and placed on site.
Later this fall, a formal meeting will be arranged to discuss the project and explore possibilities. Anyone interested in bringing the sport of archery to Big Valley is encouraged to add his or her name and contact information to the list at the Village Office or the Big Valley Library.
