SALEM, Ore. — ODFW will host the second annual S3DA Triple Crown archery tournament Aug. 4 at the Archery Park, EE Wilson Wildlife Area (2955 Camp Adair Rd, Monmouth).
The competition is open to all ages and the cost is $10, payable by cash or check on site at the event. Participants need to bring their own equipment (no broadheads or crossbows) and will shoot in three different formats: indoor target, outdoor target and 3D.
Register on the event page archeryevents.com
(https://www.archeryevents.com/event.cfm?id=6603) by July 30. Mandatory check-in for all participants will be at 9 a.m. and shooting will begin at 10 a.m.
A wildlife area parking permit ($10 and included with purchase of all 2018 hunting licenses) is also required to park at EE Wilson Wildlife Area.
“This will be a fun competition opportunity for families and friends, and a chance to experience a piece of Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA), a youth program in Oregon that provides intermediate archery opportunities,” says Miranda Leek, ODFW Archery Education Coordinator. “Hunters or target shooters, beginner or advanced—all are welcome at this shoot!”
People of all ages can participate, though they should have some prior archery experience. The competition age categories are under 7, 8-11, 12-14, 15-18 and 19 and older.
