Step right up to show off your amazingly accurate (or amateur) Robin Hood skills at the first-ever SOFD Archery Contest! Dust off your bow & arrows and report to Twin Ponds Sports Shop, 650 S Sheridan Road (M-66), on Saturday between 2:30 and 3:00 p.m. for registration. The shoot begins at 3 p.m. Cost is $20 per person. Cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. There will also be door prizes and a 50/50 raffle.
For this contest, archers will all have a chance to take their best shot at each of the 3D animal targets from aerial platforms set up along the outdoor course behind Twin Ponds. Each shot will be scored according to how close the arrow comes to the center of the vital area marked on each target. The better the shot, the higher the score. This is guaranteed to be a competitive, but fun afternoon, in good company of fellow participants who also enjoy the sport of bow shooting.
This event is hosted by the Montcalm County Fire Association.
Proceeds will benefit the MCFA for Firefighter Training.
