Tournament Results

Indiana held their 3-D State Championship on May 20th 2017. It was held at Pinehill Archery Club in Danville, Indiana. With a scheduled start time of 12 noon, Mother Nature decided to have other plans. It started raining and lightening around 10:30am and did not stop until almost 2:00pm. Finally after a lengthy delay and a couple inches of rain, the officials were finally able to get the 233 kids out on the range.

Despite the delay, the kids were ready and it showed in their scores. Several classes were decided by just a point or 2, as well as some shooter-of-the-year standings.
We put in a lot of time and effort preparing for this tournament, and other than the rain delay it went very well,”  said Jay Morris of Pinehill Archery Club.
Indiana has had a great indoor and 3D season and is looking forward to their Outdoor Target Championship in July.

Sunshine, clear skies and warm temperatures! That was the kind of weather Kentucky archers were happy to see on Saturday, May 20, as they competed in the Kentucky State 3D Tournament. “These archers aren’t going to know how to handle a range without mud, rain and cold temperatures.”

The 2017 Kentucky 3D State Tournament reached another record total of 300 competing archers and was held at the Pulaski County Park in Nancy, Ky. Finding a space to accommodate 300 archers is a task and finding a space to accommodate all of the parents, grandparents and other spectators is even more of a task. Pulaski County Park includes approximately 800 acres which includes rental cabins, campsites, boat ramps, hiking and biking trails, 2 disc golf courses, 2 playgrounds and much more. “This new location was great with future potential with growth,” stated Kentucky State coordinator Chris McDonald.

Each range, elementary, middle, and high school was set in a unique location in the park and each had its own challenges. Having each range separate made it more enjoyable for the spectators with less congestion. It also gave each group of archers their “own space” in a sense. “If they missed on the elementary range there’s a good chance they may not get their arrow back because it most likely ended up in the water,” Randy Philpot.   The middle school range had some extreme downhill shots. “Well, they disappeared down in that dark hole. I think there’s a target in there somewhere,” said one of the middle school spectators. While the middle school range had downhill shots the high school range consisted of almost all extreme uphill shots. “The state tournament is always a challenge and this one was no different but I enjoyed it,” said high school archer Bethany Groce. “It challenged us to think about our shot and put our knowledge to work.” “It’s been great to see the progression the kids have made over the past few months,” McDonald stated.

The 2017 outdoor season has sure presented its own set of challenges, some good challenges and some not so good challenges. Increasing numbers of archers is always a great challenge to face but Mother Nature and weather is one of those not so great challenges.   It certainly takes a team of people that are willing to put in some long hours to make a season run smoothly. “I would like to thank all of our coaches and volunteers that help make Kentucky S3DA possible,” Chris McDonald.

As the 2017 Kentucky S3DA 3D season comes to a close planning for the next season is already in progress.

RAIN, RAIN and yes you guessed it…lots and lots of mud! This seems to be the trend for the Kentucky S3DA 3D outdoor season! Daviess County Coach and Volunteer Mike Wilson describes this season as the “S3DA 3D Mudfest 17!” Saturday’s 9am flight time archers had to deal with steady rain and temperatures in the low 40’s. “We can’t seem to catch a break from the rain,” was stated by several early morning archers.

Between flight times two tractors spent time pulling several stuck vehicles out of the parking area and some were pulled into a better parking area.

By the 1pm flight time the rain had slowed to a drizzle but the mud seemed to have doubled on the ranges.   A couple of targets required archers to step through mud more than ankle deep and one stake became buried in deep mud. Several archers became stuck and some lost shoes. “I had a good time but I didn’t shoot my best,” said archer Ben Fannin.

Kentucky Regional Coordinator and tournament host, Wes Barker, summed up Saturday’s 3D Regional event with this statement. “Amazing is about the best way to describe the Central Kentucky S3DA Regional! It rained for almost 3 days straight mixed with cold temperatures and we still had 268 archers show up to shoot their bows! That is a true statement to what parents, grandparents and coaches will do for these kids! We only had about 20 vehicles that had to be pulled out with tractors and a hand full of kids that fell in the mud but it was a blast! I can’t wait until state to see what it brings.”
