Families came from all over the Kootenays participated in The Creston Valley Rod and Gun (CVRG) 3D Archery Competition that was held on May 11 – 12.
Two courses consisting of 20 targets were set up as a 3 km hike. The Archery Committee set up challenging targets and long-range shots that required sitting in a blind, or shooting through trees. There were several categories including compound bows, traditional re-curve bows and crossbow.
Adding to the excitement, Saturday night featured a youth balloon shoot and a poker shoot. The Creston Lions Club provided the archers with cold drinks, delicious hamburgers and hot dogs for both days keeping everyone well nourished.
Adults that place 1st in their class won back their entry fee, many of which donate it back to the club. Women’s Limited 1st Dulcie Rich,
- Women’s Unlimited 1st Barb Oglive,
- Men’s Traditional, 1st Lauren Stoyanowski,
