2016 Bare Bow Crew Summer Shoot

« 1 of 21 »

The Papago Bare Bow Crew (BBC) members came out this morning to participate in their quarterly fun shoot. BBC member, Tianna, designed the Super Hero Shoot using Hawkeye, Katniss, Robin Hood & Cupid as her inspiration. Each bale was themed according to the corresponding ‘super hero’ archer.

The archers had a great time building relationships while supporting their fellow archers and had a chance to shoot at glitter filled balloons, Mockingjay pins, arrow ‘tubes’ & with their eyes closed. We had 9 members participate and finished with 2 winners.

Congratulations to our top Bare Bow archers – Ron Shinn & Bella Kozak – on your high scores and accomplishments today!
