Range Put to Bed for the Winter

Immediately following the Outdoor 3D Championships, a small but dedicated crew hung around to put all the targets, posts, backstops and markers away for the winter. This is a hard job made lighter by many hands. The critters are all packed away in the shed where they will rest up for next summer. it was a great season up on the range where we had 44 targets set out including 11 new ones courtesy of our Lotteries Yukon grant and volunteer labour. Next year, make a point of getting up there and, hey, we can always use help maintaining the course.

The 3D Outdoor Championships

Thanks to YASC staff and participants from around the Yukon, this was a great event. We also had coverage from both the Yukon News and the Whitehorse Star. The best pictures and results are posted there. Congratulations to everyone who participated. There were archers from 8 to 80 there. Hurrah to Teslin Elder Sam Johnston (80) who made it through both rounds with really good scores and to our beginner, Dharma Huff, who won the novice division (8).

The trail around the lake is now cleared and well marked. You should be able to find it and walk it in the dark. We also started bringing in the targets for the winter. Not all the animals will be shot in the tournament this Sunday so they can be safely put to bed. We are hoping to bring the rest of the herd in on Sunday after the event so, if you have som

Last Night of the Outdoor Season

With the Outdoor 3D Championships coming up, it was busy on the range this week. Thursday, September 29 was our last night shooting on Grey Mountain until next spring. It has been a great season this year and we had about three weeks more shooting than other years due to the early melt and late fall. But, Thursday as we were leaving the range, the snow arrived. Even though it is snowing, Adam Easton is still walking around in a t-shirt.
