Cariboo Archers Club member Lee Jackman checks his shot after competing in a spot shot contest Sunday afternoon during the club's flat field 3D archery shoot held on the weekend at the Williams Lake Sportmens' Association's clubhouse.

Archers take aim at 3D shoot

Weather didn’t stop 67 competitors from participating in the Cariboo Archers’ outdoor flat field 3D shoot on the weekend.

The weather may not have totally cooperated, but that didn’t stop 67 competitors from participating in the Cariboo Archers’ outdoor flat field 3D shoot on the weekend.

The shoot took place under cool, grey skies Saturday and Sunday outside the Williams Lake Sportsmens’ Association’s clubhouse and attracted everyone from new competitors to seasoned pros.

“It went really well,” said Lee Jackman, one of the event organizers. “We had a whole range of shooters, even people who are training for the Worlds in Italy in August,”

“For them, every shoot they can get in helps them train.”

Fred Streleoff, Al Campsall, Dan Mobbs and his daughter Jesse Mobbs competed at last weekend’s shoot and all have their sight’s trained on the World Archery Championships as competitors this summer.

“It’s quite impressive that four members of our club could make worlds – it’s not an easy thing to do,” Jackman said, noting he believes it’s the first time ever that four competitors from one club, in one country have ever done it before.

Being around such high-calibre archers may have rubbed off on other club members, such as 19-year-old Daimon Johnny, who won his first spot shot Sunday afternoon, shooting a highlighted spot on a bedded elk target from 43 yards.

Johnny said he was introduced to the sport by his younger brother and sister two years ago and now practices shooting 100 arrows daily.

The results for Cariboo Archers flat field shoot are as follows:

Masters Men Recurve – 1st Dave Corless, 2nd Lorne Barron;

Men Recurve – 1st Fred Streleoff, 2nd Dan Mobbs, 3rd Ernie Schmid; Ladies Longbow – 1st Jessie Mobbs, 2nd Lisa Erikson, 3rd Nikki Mobbs; Ladies Recurve 1st Sharon Allan;

Archers of all abilities are welcome.
