2012 Youth Archery Tournament

26 03 2012

Three of our Grandchildren competed for the first time in an archery tournament this weekend.  To sound like a proud grandma (which I am!), they did WONDERFUL! I was really impressed with all of the kids abilities, and compassion to other kids.  The older ones stepped in to help the little kids, and even the little kids helped with even younger spectators.

Ryan competed in the 7 and 8 year old division.  He had some off moments, but was able to pull out a 225 by the end of the day.  Considering that 300 would be a perfect score, he did great!

Ryan was right on target

Sarah competed in the 9 and 10 year old division.  After some minor adjustments to her sight, she ended the day with a 224. She held it together through the stress of equipment failure.

Ginger competed in the 11 and 12 year old division, and did fantastic.  She got a new bow just 2 days before the tournament, so a lot of work was needed to get her shooting good.  She shot a 264,  Unfortunately in her division the top 3 shot a 299, 298 and 292.  These kids are good!

After the main tournament, the archers shot at balloons, at which Ginger won $1.00 for her team breaking them all the fastest.  Ryan won $9.00 for hitting the X on a javelina target.  Everyone left a winner.
