2017 Papago 900 Halloween Shoot Recap

The final Papago 900 of 2017 is complete. Thank you to everyone that attended and participated in making the Halloween Shoot another successful event for the Papago Archery Club.

We had a total of 28 divisions competing this past weekend with the Compound Senior Male and Recurve Cadet Female divisions having the greatest number of competitors.

The top score of the tournament was an 879, shot by Kiel Amundson, in the Compound Cub Male division. He was followed by a tie of 872 shot by Preston Adkins and Zac Neilson that was settled by the difference of only one 10! Excellent shooting guys!

The top performer of the Compound Senior Male division was Steve Longshore with an 870 and a whopping 65 tens!! Top Recurve score of the tournament was shot by Yeoman Max Mitchell with an 820. The top Barebow score belonged to Ron Shinn with a 619.  Wow!

Honorable mentions go to Recurve archers Waylon Hjerpe, Adam Vainauskas  and Zoey Wapniarski for obtaining scores in the high 700s. Compound archers Steven Belzner,  Sean Kerby and Kolbe Borrelli all achieved stellar scores in their divisions too.

We were so impressed by all of the creativity and participation in the Costume Contest this year. There were 9 categories up for grabs in the contest. All of the competitors and spectators were encouraged to vote during the first 2 rounds of the competition. Votes were then tallied and awards were presented at the end of the competition.  Thank you to Tournament Director, Kelsey Lard, for the spooktacular custom trophies this year!

We can’t express enough how grateful we are to the community for continuing to support our tournaments and helping us raise the funds needed to sustain our club, maintain the range and support the community. Thank you for such a successful year!

A huge shout out to our awesome crew of volunteers that help make these events run so smoothly. Kelsey Lard, Kevin Ikegami, Lester Chin, David Smith, Dennis Mowery, Jocelyn Horton, The Wapniarski Family,  Chris Amundson, Jennifer Hjerpe and the rest of you (that I may be forgetting – I do apologize). Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
