Need To Know

Please help us look after our target butts

Please make sure you use only target arrows/points (NOT hunting arrows/points) and a bow with less than 60lb poundage on our ranges. Shooting with hunting points or high powered bows is not allowed at MGAC because of the damage it causes. Danage (the black stuff our target butts are made from) is expensive to replace so the longer we can make it last the better.  

Availability in our May beginners’ course

There are three spots available in our May beginners’ course which runs on 4, 11, 18, and 25 May. If you know anyone over the age of 10 who would like to give archery a go, this is a great opportunity (our beginner courses normally sell out months in advance). All the details including sign up are on our website here. Any questions, please email Janis on

Roadworks around the indoor range

Major roadworks started on Royal Road this week which may impact your journey to the indoor range. If you enter the badminton centre from the motorway or anywhere from the west, there will be no impact to you. However if you enter from the east, you will need to follow the detour signs to pop out by the petrol station. 

If you’re heading to the petrol station for supplies, we strongly suggest you leave the car in the carpark and walk across the road to avoid getting trapped in the detour (unless of course you need petrol, then you’ll probably need to take the car).

At The Club This Week

What’s On In The District

The outdoor season is now pretty much over, except for a few tournaments scattered around the country.  The Auckland District Archery Association (ADAA) indoor champs, and the MGAC indoor champs will be happening around mid-year – we will share details when confirmed. 

If you are interested in tournaments regularly check Archery OSA for all target tournaments across NZ, and NZFAA (NZ Field Archery Association) for Field events.

Keep In Touch

Have fun and safe shooting
