Mount Vernon Archery Club Families and Nationals-Bound Archers competed as adult-youth teams on Saturday, April 26th at Mount Vernon High School. Young archers brought mothers, fathers, grandparents, older siblings, aunts, great uncles, cousins and ringers. Top adult-youth archers earned awards and prizes. Everyone enjoyed a pizza lunch between flights.
The shoot featured a regular NASP target competition as well as 3D Challenge similar to the new IBO 3D Challenge that archers will see in Kentucky. The Anamosa Bowhunters loaned the club use of the 3D targets for the shoot.
The Top Shooter for the NASP Shoot was Nathaniel Barnhart with a score of 290. Nathaniel was awarded a bow with 3 arrows and a Robin Hood Hat. Collin Hallier was the honorary 2nd Place archer with a score of 281. He received the traveling trophy and two rolls of Charmin Toilet Paper.
