Western Kentucky S3DA 3D Regional Tournament

Mud, water, wind, rain and even a little bit of sunshine! Those were the weather conditions that S3DA archers encountered this past weekend at the West Kentucky Regional 3D tournament held at Myer Creek Park in Calhoun, Ky.   Kentucky Regional Coordinator Chris Curtis stated, “We had sunshine, wind, rain and lots of mud! We heard very few complaints about the conditions and had several great score posted.”

Archer Emily Kelly of Daviess County Middle School shared a little bit about her day with us. “I loved the outdoor shoot. It was the first one I’ve ever done. The weather and wind definitely made shooting hard. I missed the target once but besides that I came out with a 160 total with two 12’s. I fell into the water and mud crossing a ditch to retrieve someone’s missed arrow. It was a lot of fun and I would be willing to do it again every day if I could! I definitely like outdoor 3D shooting! I can’t wait for the next competition.”

Kentucky hit another record high with 235 archers competing this past weekend. Special thanks to the parents and archers from Apollo High School, Burns Middle, College View Middle, Southern Oaks and Audubon Elementary Schools for all their hard work to make this a great event.
