Directions: Coming from I-35, take the Dean Keeton Exit (26th Street) and go west on Dean Keeton. The course will be held in Anna Hiss Gym, which is near the corner of Dean Keeton and Speedway. There is no parking immediately next to Anna Hiss Gym. There are sometimes parking spots available along Speedway, Dean Keeton or 24th St., but it is rare to find these. You must pay close attention to the parking signs. You will be fined and/or towed for parking illegally. You may park in nearby parking garages for a small fee.

There are three options in parking garages within one block. The best option is probably the parking garage on Speedway just north of Dean Keeton (turn right on Speedway as your going west on Dean Keeton). As you walk south on Speedway look for the breezeway of the Molecular Biology Building (MBB), which is up the steps to your right. Enter there and you will come into the courtyard of AHG.

Turn to your right and go in either door on the north side of the courtyard and follow the signs to the Archery Range. (See attached map).
