Blade Betts Eagle Scout Project

Blade Betts has been a club member with his family since he was 6 years old so when he was deciding what his Eagle Scout Project was going to be, he decided to give back to the to the club he loves…our Club. Seeing all the shoot and work party notices attached to the front gate and surrounding fence gave him the idea to build a new message board which will be located to the left of the front gate. This will give us one centralized location for all of our notifications and will include some information about our club and events. His budget is $2500.00

Many of you already know that these projects have to be fully funded before they receive approval from the Eagle Scout Board so Blade is asking for donations to get his project funded. So…Lets get behind this project and get it fully funded by the March Club meeting! Please send your donation to Blade Betts, P.O. Box 186, Norco CA. 92860 or you can visit his Go Fund Me page at Blade Betts Eagle Scout Project and make a donation.

Thank you for your support

Come out and support our Club

Oranco Bowmen is a private, not for profit, Archery Club. No one gets paid for their time. We need volunteers to help maintain the range and keep it Safe, Attractive and Operational. This is why our volunteers are so important. Keeping about 45 acres safe and clean is a big job, but with the help of our members, we can keep Oranco the nicest range in Southern California.

Work parties are held on the Saturday prior our major shoots. If you would like to get Work Party announcments, make sure to get on our email list. Sign up here

The Range

Occupying about 45 acres, Oranco Bowmen Archery Club is a NFAA certified 5-star range. This is the highest certification given by NFAA. It is the only range in Southern California with practice butts from 10-80 yards in 5-yard increments. If you need a place to "dial in" your bow, this is it!  Oranco also has two NFAA roving courses: Our Valley Course is a level 28-target course, consisting of 14 animal and 14 hunter paper targets. For those who desire a bit more of a physical challenge, our Mountain Course is a hilly 28-target course offering 14 Field targets and another set of 14 animal paper targets.  The Layout changes occasionally.  Range Map
