Ben Avery Shooting Facility Reopens

PHOENIX — The Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF) reopened its Clay Target Center and archery range on. The facility was temporarily closed last Friday to put in place health protections in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The rifle and pistol ranges are scheduled to reopen next week. User groups will still have access to facilities.

What you need to know:

● Hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday.

● To minimize personal contact between customers and staff, the customer service desk inside the OneAZ Credit Union Pavilion at the Clay Target Center will be closed.

● The Clay Target Center will operate on a first-come, first-served basis — but only for Gold Card holders. The first 30 shooters will begin at 8 a.m., followed by another 30 shooters at 10:30 a.m., then an additional 30 shooters at 1:30 p.m. These 30-shooter groupings will be for two-hour blocks.

● The archery range will be open on a cash-only basis. Archers will be able to deposit their payment into an unattended receptacle (iron ranger).
