On Saturday, August 4 Four Corners SCI and Goods For the Woods held the first annual 4-Corners 3-D Archery shoot in Cortez, Colo. at Goods for the Woods’ new location. There was a high turnout of competitors from near and far. The event included categories for men, women, and children to enjoy shooting their compound or traditional bows.
The course, provided by Goods for the Woods, had 23 different 3-D targets of varying yardages and shot angles. This made for an enjoyable course that presented a good challenge for archers of all ages and abilities.
There was a good turnout of youth, and thanks to the SCI board members, who brought youth gear, they did not even need a bow of their own to go through the course. In addition to the 12 and under youth category, we also had several teens that were competing in the adult division and holding their own quite well.
After the 3-D shoot was completed, we had a $5 long range-shoot fundraiser, which consisted of two rounds. Shooters attempt to hit a ram target at 96 yards. This was a lot of fun for shooters and for the spectators. The biggest cheers went to Muz Pinnecoose for hitting the ram target with a longbow, a very incredible shot. The winner of the contest won the ram target, which Rinehart generously donated for the event.
After all of the shooting was completed, prizes were awarded to the top three shooters in each division. First place prizes were 3-D targets, the second received a dozen arrows, and third place was a $75 gift certificate to Goods for the Woods. In addition, we had a raffle with enough prizes that everyone ended up going home with awesome goodies.
Keep an eye out for our second annual shoot next year! Come to enjoy the fun, comradery, and help us raise money for conservation, habitat and humanitarian purposes in the area. Mark the date on your calendar and come to support the Four Corners SCI and Good for the Woods.
