Archers join championship ranks

Cariboo Archers Jessie Mobbs and Ernie Schmid earned their first Canadian championship gold medals last weekend.

Cariboo Archers Jessie Mobbs and Ernie Schmid earned their first Canadian championship gold medals at the Canadian Indoor 3D Archery Championships in Cloverdale last weekend.

The duo join current local champions Ty Thurow, Dan Mobbs, Fred Streleoff and Al Campsall.

Both Schmid, in the masters traditional division, and Jessie, in the longbow class, were leaders throughout the competition.

Jessie’s dad, Dan, proudly looked on to watch his daughter win the same gold medal he’d won in the past.

Dan, meanwhile, in the younger men’s category finished a close third in the instinctive category.

Past champion Streleoff dominated his division to win his fifth Canadian championship by a 66-point margin. He then went on to defeat all comers for the grand prix championship — a competition for the top eight archers in each discipline all shooting for bragging rights.

After eliminating six of the top eight traditional archers in the country, Streleoff pin-wheeled the centre of the target on his last shot to vanquish the seventh contender.

Campsall, meanwhile, shot the highest scoring round for all archers scoring 292 of 296 possible points to capture his 15th Canadian archery championship.

In other Cariboo Archers news, the club will host a free fun outdoor shoot and annual general meeting this Sunday at the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association Bond Lake Road Clubhouse.

All WLSA members and Cariboo Archers are welcome to attend, beginning at 10 a.m., followed by a free lunch, then the AGM.

In two weeks, members of the Cariboo Archers are headed to Oliver for the BC Indoor Target Championships.

Following that, on April 11-12, the Cariboo Archers are hosting a fun flatfield 3D archery shoot at the WLSA clubhouse for any and all archers to enjoy. There will also be an indoor component for those new to archery.

Shooting starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, with registration going from 8 to 11 a.m. A concession will be available.
