The Barnes County Wildlife Federation is searching for a new place to put an indoor archery range, which is currently located in the City Auditorium or â€śthe Audi.â€ť
The range, located in the basement, and includes 3-D targets and allows archers to shoot from 20 yards and 10 yards indoors. Soon, though, theyâ€™ll have to find a new place to shoot because the building is being sold by the City of Valley City.

For the first 40 minutes of Valley City High School girls basketball team's 63-53 win over Maple Valley Tuesday at the Hi-Liner Activity Center, the Hi-Liners had little trouble finding a good shot.
But, for whatever reason, the team's numerous open looks wouldn't make the short trip off the backboard and through the hoop.
"We had good shot selection and good shooting opportunities the entire game, but it took us a while to get where we could consistently hit some," Valley City coach Jim McDaniel said.
