UPDATE: Shoot has been cancelled because of the CoViD-19 pandemic
We have our annual shoot coming up April 25/26. details and poster for the event to follow as well as up to date on our “Kamloops Archers” Facebook page.
3D shoots are a lot of work and we do a host a much anticipated and well attended event.
So, we have some workdays planned, the first one this coming Sunday (March 8th) 10:00 am at the archery range. This will be mostly planning and organizing with some plotting of the course. Then the weekend of April 11/12th for getting the course up and running, setting targets, stakes etc. Also then the Thursday (23rd) and Friday (24th) just before the shoot, we will be on site finalizing the event. We could also use a hand for tear down on the Sunday (26th) of the event from 2:00 pm, ATV’s especially welcome!
We have lots planned for the courses, the fun shoots, evening events and other things to make the shoot stand out so if you have not tried 3D archery and want to, its a great opportunity to come along and see what it’s all about. With vendors invited and a buy and sell/trade blanket on site too.
We are also looking for sponsors, prize donations and all that good stuff if anyone can help us along with that, all community involvement welcomed.
The archery indoor venue for winter shooting will be at the Westsyde Neighbourhood Centre on Sunday evenings. We are partnering with the city for beginner archery lessons so only part of the gym will be available to members form 6:00 to 7:30 and the whole gym will be available to members from 7:30 to 9:00. This is a school gym so “NO street foot ware rule will be enforced”. Text Ken at 250-299-3941 if you would like more information.
The Westsyde Neighbourhood Centre is just past the Westsyde shopping on the west side of westsyde road.
There will be an archery work party at the out door range on April 7th, 2018, 9am, to start setting up for the 3D shoot at the end of April. For information e-mail Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-299-3941 evenings.
