Archers from across Southern Saskatchewan will be putting their skills to the test this weekend here in Moose Jaw, as the Thunder Creek Archery Club hosts their 12th annual 3D Shoot.

The two-day event is open to all skill levels, all ages and all types of bows as the archers are required to completely 25 targets with the high score winning in the end.

“We have realistic foam targets set up in natural settings and it's all throughout the Boys Scout Camp, like through the trees and through the trails,” explained Tyler Moore, club president.  “There's different stakes for different classes, so everyone from young kids to adults will have a challenging course and a fun course.”

Heading into its 12th year, the event is doing well and Moore expects a good turnout, depending on the weather.  “Last year on the Sunday we were rained out, but over the past few years, it's been really good,” he said.

“The one thing with archery shoots is there's usually quite a few shoots going on, but we're actually only competing with one other shoot that's in North Battleford this weekend.  Everything south of Saskatoon we'll be the only shoot going, so we should draw well from Southern Saskatchewan.”

Medals will be handed out for both days with door and raffle prizes.  Registration opens at 9:00am on Saturday morning and the event runs on Sunday as well.
