The Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Lake Superior Sportsman’s Club will host a Family Fun Archery Night on Wednesday, May 11, at 6 p.m., at the LSSC club property, located at 31433 West M-64, in Silver City.

This free archery event is designed for beginners of all ages who are interested in learning more about the sport of archery. Basic archery equipment will be provided, or participants are welcome to bring their own. The indoor event will include instruction and plenty of time for target practice.

“Archery is a fun, family-friendly activity that doesn’t require a large initial investment for beginners,” said DNR program coordinator Bob Wild. “The sport can be about learning target-shooting skills, or can serve as a way for bow hunters to practice in the off-season. Either way, it’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors as a family.”

The Family Fun Archery Night is open to everyone, but children younger than 14 must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required, and refreshments will be served.

For more information, contact Bob Wild at 906-885-5206 or LSSC president Walt Toepfer at 906-885-5334. Learn more about the DNR’s archery programs at www.michigan.gov/explorebowhunting.
