ENCOURAGING AND FOSTERING THE PRACTICE OF BOWHUNTING, AND TARGET AND FIELD ARCHERY.
Davenport Valley Archers (DVA) has been an organized archery club since 1967 and is incorporated in the State of Iowa. We support and encourage all types of archery. We are affiliated with the Iowa State Archery Association (ISAA) and the National field Archery Association (NFAA).
The club hosts a number of bowhunter, field, and target archery tournaments each year. Our indoor range is located in Devil's Glen Park, Bettendorf, Iowa. This range is open from October through April (Tuesdays and Thursday, 6:30 p.m.). Activities include indoor tournaments and leagues, including a kids league, open shooting on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and archery classes on request for groups or organizations such as Scout troops. Our outdoor range is located 4/10th of a mile west of Long Grove, Iowa. It has a 40-target 3D range, a 14-target field range, practice ranges, and primitive camping. 3D shoots are held monthly April through September. This year, the June, July, and August shoots are two-day shoots. Members are encouraged to camp and make a weekend of these shoots.
Annual membership dues are $36. This applies to individuals and families.
If interested, contact Tom Stelk by phone (355-2897) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We welcome non-members to come and participate in all of our shoots and open shooting sessions, or just come to the ranges and learn more about our club.
