Our thanks go out to the Myer Creek Archery Club from McLean County.
The Myer Creek Archery Club loaned the Southern KY Chapter 30 of their 3-D targets which made it possible to have a 20-station archery shoot and special novelty shots. Without their generosity and the generosity of Gander Mountain, this event could not have taken place.
This Year's Winners:
MEN's DIVISION: Jeremy Draper of Alvaton. Score 212 out of a maximum of 240. He won a Blendale Buck 3-D archery target donated by Gander Mountain.
Second Place: Jeff Brown, Bowling Green. Score 203.
YOUTH DIVISION: Logan Cherry, Alvaton. Score of 190. Logan won a Delta target which was also donated by Gander Mountain.
Dr. Paul Graham, who works with NASP's Archery in the School Program, was busy all day working with the younger crowd, providing all who desired to have an opportunity to test their skills.
