Inaugural Fun Shoot Archery Tournament at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park Aug. 11
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park will host its inaugural Fun Shoot Archery Tournament for children and adults on Aug. 11.
Participants in the children’s division (ages 7-13) will shoot targets at 10 and 15 meters. Adult participants (ages 14 and up) will shoot at targets ranging from 10 to 40 yards. There will be different divisions within the age groups based on the equipment and bow used.
The registration fee is $20 per person for the first division entered and $5 for each additional division entered. The competition starts at 10 a.m.
This tournament will be held at the outdoor archery range at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park. Each round will start in a “shotgun” fashion, meaning that participants will be randomly selected to start at a particular distance. The first target shot each round will be practice, then participants will rotate after that until all targets have been attempted. Targets (80cm FITA) will be provided. First place will receive a trophy, with medals being awarded to runner-up and second runner-up in each division. First place will also receive a “Champion’s T-shirt” after the tournament.
Registration forms are available online at www.parks.ky.gov or you can pick one up from the Activities Building at the park. Call 502-429-7270 for more information or email email@example.com
