Upcoming Activities

Craft day Sunday, August 28th from 3 PM to 5 PM

Stock Pavilion (1402 W Pennsylvania Ave, Urbana, IL)

  • due to both of our local archery marshals being unavailable on Sunday afternoon, there will not be archery practice on Sunday. Instead, a few of our members will be utilizing the space that we have reserved to share a few of their crafts, make progress on them, and share what they know with each other. Feel free to bring your own crafts to work on then!

On a bit more of a serious note, it is my unfortunate duty to report that a person who attended our student activity night became symptomatic this morning and tested positive for COVID. With the number of individuals in an enclosed space without masks, the CDC would describe the level of exposure risk as moderate to high. Please be vigilant for signs of infection and test if necessary.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

We recommend that you follow the CDC guidelines for immediate testing, followed by isolation and quarantine for a minimum of five days following exposure that may be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/isolation.html
