Members of the Cariboo Archers finished among the archery elite in Canada earlier this month at the Canadian Indoor Target Championships.

“These are shot in multiple venues across Canada and the results are then forwarded to Ottawa for collation,” said Cariboo Archer and Junior Olympic Program coach Al Campsall.
