Happy Canada Day!

The month of July is looking to be a fun one out at the outdoor range! We have the marked 3D ASA Scoring tournament on the 29th of July (Link to details poster) which permits the use of a rangefinder etc. so it is a great opportunity to brush off the rust from winter and get practiced up for hunting season. Thanks to Mike and Carly of MC Rehabilatation and Wellness for Sponsoring this years ASA Shoot!

Also we will be hosting the 1st Annual New Totem 900 on July 30th, which will consist of 90 arrows at 3 different distances. Senior compounds will be shooting at 70, 60, and 50 yards (@ 80 cm faces), Traditionals at 40, 30, and 20 yards and the kids will be shooting at 20, 15, and 10 yards (@122 cm faces). Cash prizes for Adult Classes so best start practicing those long shots (in the wind!). Click here for details on the tournament.

Lastly, we have received some of the mock ups to the New Totem Archery Shooter Jerseys! They are a light, dry fit / wicking material with submlimated logos. The jerseys can come in a whole host of colours to match your rigging with the logo being solid black as this sublimates best onto the material. We are in the process of getting an order form together but if you would like to order one of these and show your New Totem pride at the next shoot, let Tim or Graham know and we will put your name on the list. The cost of the adult Jersey's will be around $50. As for the kids we can get the same logo's done up on a dri-fit t-shirt and are in the process of selecting one that should work for all kids sizes without breaking the bank. Again, if this is something you would like to have ordered up for your Jr. Archer please let us know and we will get the details to you shortly.

Well it has been a busy couple months so sorry for the delay in updating the website with our outdoor times, tournament scores etc. Our directors and members have been working hard these past couple months working on the range, installing 7 new 50" Bulldog targets, setting up the 3D range, hosting our annual unmarked 3D tournament that had over 70 archers in attendance as well as submitting a proposal to the City of Fort St. John to permit the construction of a permanent indoor range on the location of our outdoor range! This would permit our club to grow our membership as well as interest in the sport by increasing our hours of operation each week and permit us to host more tournaments throughout the year. We are really excited at this prospective opportunity to partner with the City but it will require a lot of hard work and dedication from all our members to make it a reality.

Below is a link to the powerpoint that was presented to the City as well as the detailed proposal. If you have any questions or are willing to help with construction, fundraising, etc. please do not hesitate to contact either Graham or Tim!

As I mentioned earlier our annual Unmarked Outdoor 3D Tournament was well received with over 70 archers participating in a variety of classes - even over 10 archers competing in our non-competitive class which is great to see. The scores for the tournament are posted under the Tournaments tab. I personally enjoyed seeing so many folks from out of town camping at the range and enjoying our facilities as well as all the new faces! - thank you all for your continued support of our events and their are plans to host more events this summer!

We will be hosting a Marked Yardage 1 day 3D shoot on July 29, 2017 which will be 2 loops and an ASA shootdown for any final scores that are within 10 points of each other and in a position to be placed on the podium (yes I am working on one of these for the range!). Rangefinders are welcome so all you bowhunters come on out and get practiced up for hunting season!

If 3D isn't your thing we will also be starting a new tradition with our 1st Annual New Totem 900 that will be on Sunday July 30th, 2017. The details of the tournament are still being worked out so stay tuned as I hope to have this on the website this week. So come for the weekend and enjoy a variety of archery styles in a fun yet competitive atmosphere! Oh and I almost forgot - Cash Prizes for Adult Classes!
