    CLARK — The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders announces that archery safety classes are available for people who would like to learn the basics of archery. The safety lessons will be conducted at the Union County Archery Range at Oak Ridge Park in Clark.

    “Archery is a popular recreational activity that has been underserved in our area,” said Freeholder Chairman Deborah P. Scanlon. “The Freeholder Board is thrilled to have this opportunity to offer beginners ages nine years and older a convenient and affordable lesson that includes archery safety, basic skills, proper equipment use and technique.”

    Each archery course is two hours long and consists of a safety training session followed by hands-on instruction at the range. The fee is $20 per person. There will be a minimum of eight and a maximum of 24 participants per class.

    Archery equipment is provided by the County of Union. The lessons are taught by a trained and certified USA Archery Instructor and/or a trained and certified 4-H National Archery Instructor.

    Twelve new group archery lesson times have been scheduled:

    Sunday, April 17, at 2 p.m.
    Sunday, May 15, at 2 p.m.
    Sunday, May 22, at 2 p.m.
    Wednesday, May 25, at 6 p.m.
    Sunday, June 5, at 2 p.m.
    Sunday, June 26, at 10 a.m.
    Sunday, July 10, at 10 a.m.
    Wednesday, July 13, at 6 p.m.
    Wednesday, July 27, at 6 p.m.
    Wednesday, Aug. 10, at 6 p.m.
    Sunday, Sept. 11, at 2 p.m.
    Sunday, Sept. 25, at 2 p.m.

    After successful completion of the lesson and a safety questionnaire, participants are qualified to purchase a Union County Archery Range ID card that permits them to use Union County's Archery Range through Dec. 31. The archery range is open daily, dawn to dusk.

    Anyone who has already completed an accredited archery safety course can call 908-527-4900 for information about purchasing a Union County Archery Range ID Card.

    The fee for the ID card is $20 for adult Union County residents and $10 for youths and seniors. The Union County fee also applies to residents of Edison. The ID card fee for all other out-of-county residents is $30 for adults and $15 for youths and seniors.

    Archery safety class space is limited, so reservations are required. Anyone interested in learning the safe use of a bow and arrow should call the reservation desk at the Union County Department of Parks and Community Renewal at 908-527-4900. Registration for an archery safety class is on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Private family and small group lessons for eight or fewer people also are available. Please call 908-654-9854 to schedule a private small group lesson.

    This range was built by volunteer sportsmen in partnership with Union County...good stuff.
    100 yard range,comfortably allows 20 shooters on the ashphalt shooting line, bow racks, safety area, picnic benches, porta potties and some of the nicest Union County sportsmen you will ever meet shoot here..

    Coming soon....covered overhang, to shoot in any kind of weather

    100 yard range? Thats a little far for a bow dont ya think. Especially a beginner. Do you have a shorter range, say 40 yrds. Also does completion of the hunters ed course count to shoot there.

    Ummm, it's 100 yards max...you can shoot your target at 5 yards if you choose.

    Also does completion of the hunters ed course count to shoot there.
