Rendezvous at the River: La Grande, Oregon Traditional Archery Shoot

In spite of the heavy downpour of rain on Friday, the skies cleared and we had a beautiful weekend. Maybe the weather scared off a few folks, but there was still a good turnout for the wonderful courses and novelty shoots. Saturday morning was for registration and shooting the courses and the afternoon was for the novelty shoots: the kids “water torture”, the adults “water torture”, the William Tell Apple shoot, and the long distance shoot. Winners of the Kids was Wyatt Garner, and Scott Nevill won the of the William Tell shoot (for the 3rd time) and the long distance shoot. Saturday evening was for fun and games, with corn hole tournaments and a flashlight shoot. Sunday was a well organized blanket shoot, with groups of 3 – 7 competing for a choice of prizes. The awards ceremony honored the winners and then ended with a raffle of donated prizes and many door prizes.  It was a fun weekend!
