Furry Friend Reminder

With the shared goal of maintaining a safe community, we’d like to kindly remind you that dogs are to be kept on a leash while walking throughout the community.
 
As every dog owner knows, our furry friends bring great joy but also great responsibility. By keeping your dog on a leash, you protect fellow residents and your dog from potentially harmful situations. Even a well-intentioned and loving dog could harm themselves or someone else while off-leash.
 
For Off-Leash fun, visit one of Willowsford’s many designated Off-Leash areas located in The Grange, The Grant, and The Greens. In these areas, dogs are permitted to be off leash under the supervision and control of their caretaker.
 
Your contribution to keeping our community safe is much appreciated.

    Willowsford Archery Club  

    The ancient sport of target archery combines skills of strength, precision and consistency, and builds focus while enjoying the outdoors.  Archery is very social and can be practiced for fun or to take part in competitions.


    Willowsford Conservancy provides the archery range in The Greens, which serves as the venue for the Willowsford Archery Club.  The Conservancy and Club have entered into a use agreement for the range, and residents must be members of the Archery Club to use the range.  In order to cover insurance fees and other Club expenses, there is an annual $70 individual fee ($85 for a household membership) to join the non-profit Archery Club. There is also an incentive to reduce the fees by $40 in 2020 by volunteering at the range during the current Calendar year.


    Residents of all ages can practice at the outdoor range, which features a rustic pavilion that covers the shooting zone, picnic tables for archery instruction led by resident archers or guest instructors, a storage shed, and 10 archery lanes with covered targets at distances of 10 to 60 yards.


    Residents who want to receive more information about the Willowsford Archery Club, or join the Club, can contact willowsfordarcheryclub@gmail.com.  Residents can also join the Willowsford Archery Club Facebook Page for news about the archery range and club.
