Organized by Jake VandeZande, the two day shoot took archery enthusiasts throughout the woods on a pleasant Saturday afternoon.

Thirty targets were set up throughout the club, though in the past as many as 60 targets have been set up.

While the shoot wraps up the season, there is the possibility of an early shoot to kick the season off next year.

Members are looking to hold a February winter shoot that has been very popular in years past. An estimated 70 archers took part in last year’s winter shoot.
