Local Archers Plan Shoot

0

The local archery club has planned a 3-D archery competition in June. To make it happen, they will need more support from the surrounding communities.

The Jamboree is June 13 and 14 at H2H Bison Ranch in Worley and is organized by the Broken Trail Bowmen. The archery club formed in 2013 and serves the communities of St. Maries and Harrison.

Members of the local archery club are planning a shoot this summer with 40 3-D targets some of which are shown here. Pictured include (front, from left) Bret and Peter Nelson, James Plante, (back, from left) Scott Schiermeister, Kurtis Plante holding Brooke, Freddie Plante and Jason Brebner.

Last year, the Broken Trail Bowmen received funds and targets from the Priest River club when it dissolved. Rusty Riberich said Warren Howard, of the H2H Bison Ranch, contacted the club who offered to host a shoot.

“This got the ball rolling and the club members began raising money and donations to be able to purchase targets and hold an archery shoot,” Mr. Riberich said.

The archery shoot will include 40 targets. The competition shoot will be June 13 and 14. The local 4-H archery group, led by Rodey Hill, will have their own private shoot June 12.

The club has received donations from St. Maries Auto Parts (NAPA), Les Schwab, Harrison Water Adventures, Blue Goose, Potlatch, Silver Valley/ Benewah Veterinary Clinic, Benewah Community Hospital, Nelson Trucking, Boller Trucking and Whitney Trucking.

“We still need more funds and additional targets in order to be able to put on the shoot,” Mr. Riberich said.

Age groups for the competition shoot are Cub (up to 12 years), Youth (13-17), and Adult (18 and older).

“All ages groups are split by gender and the adult age group is split into the following classes: traditional, open, freestyle, free style limited,” Mr. Riberich said.

Metal plaques will be award as prizes. The plaque features a cutout of a bison and will include the competition’s name, individual placing, year of the shoot, an archery target and the club’s name.

“There will also be some different money competitions to be decided on the day of the event,” Mr. Riberich said.

To enter, it is $15 per day for an adult or $25 for the weekend. Youth pay $10 per day or $15 for the weekend. A family of four (two adults) will be $65 to compete. Mr. Riberich said there is no pre-registration. Those who plan to enter can register the day of the event. The competition will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Mr. Riberich said those who plan to attend should also make lodging reservations. Lodging is available onsite at H2H Bison Ranch. Call 755-6102 for more information.
