Looking for Foam


Splitear

Recommended Posts

This should probably be in the archery or "WTB" forum, but I'm really looking for help from anyone that might have some resources. 

We need to replace a lot of the foam sheets in our 4-H Archery Booth at the Saratoga County Fair. We basically have an enclosed lean-to that we have put a bunch of foam in, not only as a back stop, but also to catch any errant arrows being flung by kids or drunks leaving the beer tent. I talked with my boss about where he originally got what we currently have, and he said it came from a shoe factory that gave us their defect sheets of sole foam. 

So, does anyone know where I might be able to find some foam? Preferably sheets of the stuff, dense enough to have a couple of layers stop an arro, but not so dense that the arrows bounce off with low poundage bows. 

Thanks in advance!

Harbor Freight and other places have anti-vibration foam for standing on in shops and garages. Usually dark green or gray. They come in 2 by 2 ft. squares that interlock. A couple of layers of this should stop most low poundage bows.

believe it or not those are likely too dense. think youth bows like Mathew Genesis or less punch.

my thoughts are I'd ask Curtis Lumber or another "mom and pop" place that sells construction materials to see if they have damaged exterior foam board insulation and/or see if they'll donate some if they don't. it'll run around $50 per 4'x8'x2" sheet. Tell them you'll put signage up that the booth is sponsored by them. Just a thought. It's what John Bowe and I do when we need stuff for NDA (QDMA).

That's a great idea!
