Archers split up and conquer

Five Cariboo Archers decided to split up and conquer last weekend.

Five Cariboo Archers decided to split up and conquer last weekend.

Heading south, Fred Streleoff easily won the men’s recurve division while Ernie Schmid beat all comers in the master’s men’s recurve division at the highly-competitive Logan Lake 3D Shoot.

Tom Logan, meanwhile, finished third in the masters longbow category.

Not to be outdone, northbound Dan Mobbs and Al Campsall vanquished the competition in Prince George — Mobbs in the men’s recurve and Campsall in the master’s men’s open.

Four Cariboo Archers are now off to Duncan on Vancouver Island this coming weekend for the BC 3D Archery Championships.

All four expect to do well and have been working hard toward their goals.

Streleoff, Mobbs and Campsall are all vying for positions on Team Canada for the 2015 World Championships.

Schmid was also ‘in the running,’ but unexpected circumstances precluded his inclusion.

Cariboo Archer Jessica Mobbs is also contending for Team Canada status — which would make it five if all make the team.

“Imagine five archers from the same club on Team Canada!?” Campsall said.
