TyTans Archery Club

Our archery program has been expanding, and now we have a youth archery club! A great way for your kids to be active in a beneficial environment.

Archery 2-D Shoot Winners

Sunny weather, though some wind, made for a great day of shooting – October 15th was our Archery 2-D Shoot. Everyone loved the 24-target course, comprised of animal targets made from DuraMesh with scoring rings. The course is good practice for hunting, as you have opportunities to shoot uphill, downhill, through trees, and in open areas, at a variety of unmarked distances. The Men’s Compound Class winners were Luke Carta, of Cripple Creek, with a score of 171, and Paul Kosek, of Florence, with a score of 163. The Youth Compound Class winner for the 12 to 14 age group was Bryceann Kosek, of Florence, with a score of 138. A perfect score would be 288, which no one has come close to – yet. The 2-D Outdoor Range is open year-round from dawn to dusk. After signing up...
