Archers hit mark in Quesnel

Four members of the Cariboo Archers travelled to Quesnel March 2-3 to compete in the Canadian Indoor Target Championship.

“They are called regionals because they are held in venues across the many regions of Canada, then the results are sent to Archery Canada for collation,” said Cariboo Archer Al Campsall.

For three of the shooters, it was their first shoot.

Fred Streleoff, shooting in the senior barebow recurve class, sniped a second-place finish.

Emma Paterson, in the cub compound class, picked up 24th. Breanne Carlson, in the cadet compound class, took 20th.

Campsall, shooting in the masters bowhunter release class, finished second.

Coming up from March 23-24 the Cariboo Archers host their annual Indoor 3D Shoot at the Trail Riders Arena. All levels of shooters are welcome to attend.
