With the weather forecast to be in the 50’s this weekend, what better way to bring in the new year than a few rounds of 5-Stand? That’s right, the weather will be great, and we’ve been itching to try out the new throwers that were purchased this Fall! In addition to our regular throwers, we now have a battue, midi, wobble, and rabbit throwers - making the Ankeny Ikes one the premiere 5-stand ranges in central Iowa. We’ll have 7 throwers in operation that will certainly test and improve your shooting skills.

The next scheduled open 5-stand event is scheduled for Saturday, August 18, from 9:00 – 2:00. We have the range reserved for open 5-stand every other Saturday through the end of October, but this is dependent upon participant turnout, weather, and other unforeseen events. Keep your eye on the Ikes calendar for any changes. http://www.ankenyikes.org/pages/google_calendar/ Look forward to different range set ups, target patterns, and sequences in the future. We’ll try to put a different twist into the range each time to challenge your skill and to improve your shooting. Help spread the word to others who may be...
