Meat Swing:

Friday - A timed, team event. Teams of two shoot balloons from about 15 yards for the youngsters and 25 yards for the adults. Shooters are timed to see how quickly their team can break four balloons. The cost is minimal and you can enter multiple times to ensure you put up your best time. Participants may also enter in more than one team division. Medals are awarded to the top three finishers in the youth, women's, men's, and Co-ed categories. Interested shooters should come to the practice field. 

Distance Shoot:
Friday - Don't let the name fool you! This events isn't so much about distance, but marksmanship, even with unconventional bow equipment. Contestants of all ages can test their distance shooting skills on a 3D target placed at an unknown distance, with a small bottle cap designating the center of the "kill zone." All participants, regardless of age or gender, will use the bow provided, with a very low draw weight, and shoot from the same location. An entry fee of $1 buys three arrows. Participants may enter as many times as they wish to better their scores. Medals will be awarded to the top three scorers in the youth (12 and under), women's and men's divisions. The event is located on the Barnes' property. 

Robin Hood Run:
Saturday - A cross-country race, testing both your marksmanship and endurance. Participants race through a forest course to shoot at designated 3D Targets. This is a timed event, with seconds deducted for targets hit in the vitals, and seconds added for missed targets. So, if you are lacking in the speed department, you can make up time for well-placed shots! Medals are presented to the top three runners in each division. Ladies divisions include PeeWee (10 & under); Youth (11-14); Teen (15-19); Young Adults (20-29); Adult (30-39); Masters (40-49); Seniors (50 & over).

Medals will be awarded to the top three scorers in the youth (12 and under), women's and men's divisions. Meet on the Barnes' property just north of the Practice Range.
