    Probably just busting my chops . . . But if you do want a safety course shoot me a pm and I can get you set up.
    The reason behind the safety course is very complicated but long story short- it's all about the anti hunter / shooters that are horrified that a range of any sort is in their community. It was a long process on the part of a few dedicated individuals to finally get a range approved... It would suck to lose it overnight. Don't blame the county on this one!

    ^ I would be interested in taking a class. Thats right down the road from my office and it would be nice to have a place to fling some arrows at lunchtime.

    The head instructors just met two weeks ago to set up this years class schedule. All classes are held at the range and you can go to the county park offices in Westfield or Elizabeth to get signed up. The course is really geared to novice archers but even experienced guys ( girls ) need an overview of the range rules : calling the line hot/ clear, no BROADHEADS, no CROSSBOWS, stuff like that. 2hrs or so and you get your certificate and then a range I.d. For the calendar year.

    I saw on the website that they offer private group instruction if you have more than 4 people. If a group of 4 can be found, is it possible to schedule a course before the end of March?
