Southern Hospitality is alive and well within the quaint town of Fort Mill, South Carolina. The welcoming staff at Fort Mill Bowhunters 3D Archery Club provided South Carolina S3DA an interesting but challenging 3D course. With more than 100+ in attendance, the range was covered with archers of all ages. Many of the parents were super excited to be outdoors with their children and watch them fling some arrows. Point-On Archery S3DA youth archer, Maddie Hanley said, “We have shot at this location several times. The course is somewhat challenging with a variety of distances and animal sizes. I still get excited every time I get the chance to come to this venue.”
South Carolina State Coordinator, Sheila Tadlock stated, “As I was preparing to leave for the tournament, I opened the front door to realize that it was pouring down the rain. So, that meant that I needed to go back and grab an umbrella and some mud boots. One thing about the South is you never know what kind of weather you are going to get. Driving thirty minutes in and out of the storm we got to the facility to discover that the range was dry. There was a beautiful double rainbow over the club headquarters that reassured me it was going to be a great day. As archers and their families arrived, you could hear children calling out to their teammates and see them grabbing bows, quivers, and arrows from the vehicles to hurry off to the head of the range.”
Center Point Archery Coach, Amanda Miller stated, “I personally thought the tournament was amazing! I love being able to go out there and watch these kids. I just love how all their faces light up with excitement.”
