What is the Rochester Archery Club?
The Rochester Archery Club is a group of people whose interests are bowhunting, target archery, conservation, or bowfishing. 
Formed in 1937, the Rochester Archery Club has stimulated interest in archery in general and has produced many competitive champions, many fine bowhunters, and encouraged participation by many archers who shoot purely for the fun of it. We also promote archery through demonstrations and lectures given to scouts and other interested organizations. 
The Rochester Archery Club is affiliated with Minnesota Bowhunters Inc., a statewide organization promoting bowhunting and working with the D.N.R. and legislature to improve bowhunting. 
What does the Rochester Archery Club offer me?
Outdoor shooting ranges.
The club owns 40 acres of land in Northwest Rochester, along 75th Street. We have a practice range with targets at marked distances from 10 to 60 yards. We also have a field course with life-size animal targets at various unmarked distances, over a variety of terrain, to give our bowhunters well-rounded practice for the hunting season. 

Business meetings.
Meetings are held once a month (usually on the 1st Wednesday) where new members and new ideas are always welcome. Refreshments and social hour follow each meeting. 

Newsletters.
Prior to each meeting, newsletters are sent to all members informing them when and where the meeting will be held. Other archery news of the month as well as club news, equipment for sale, or special bulletins are included in the newsletter. 
Minnesota Bowhunters Inc.
Membership to Minnesota Bowhunters Inc. is included when you join the Rochester Archery Club. A quarterly magazine, The Minnesota Bowhunter will be sent to you from the state organization, The M.B.I. is active in conservation and bowhunters can be proud of being a member of this fine organization. 
Awards. 
Successful bowhunters taking deer, bear or other game animals with bow & arrow are presented with awards at the annual awards banquet. 
Social Activities. 
We have wild game feed potluck dinners, we have guest speakers, or informative programs at some meetings, we host 3D shoots several times each year, we have carp shoots, fun shoots, small game hunts, hog roasts, and an annual awards banquet. We have a Casino night each year to raise money to help pay for our land. 
Membership Types. 
The Rochester Archery Club offers a reduced membership rate for youth (under age 18) in an effort to promote archery. Adults can choose family or single membership. Members that want to get involved with the club activities, help with fund raising activities, or serve as a club officer can earn credits that can reduce the cost of the following years dues. 

For fun, fellowship, and archery, join the Rochester Archery Club, Inc.
