On March 11, Huntsville High School’s gyms were transformed into indoor archery ranges when Archers in Muskoka (AIM) held its first indoor 3D tournament.

More than 40 of the club’s members of all ages participated in the day-long tournament in friendly competition for the most points. (See the tournament results below.)

The club started four years ago as a way for local archers to support and learn from each other in a positive environment says Kevin Stroud. “Our format is Muskoka-wide to bring all of us together in the community, even though a lot of people can just shoot in their back yard.”

Stroud notes that archery has become more popular over the last four or five years with movies like The Hunger Games placing the sport in the limelight. “It’s a great activity and they’re starting to promote it more in the schools again. We’re very open to getting kids involved and we are trying to promote the future of archery.”

Learn more about the club and how to get involved on the Archers in Muskoka Facebook page or email archersinmuskoka@gmail.com. The club will be holding its next 3D archery tournament, a fundraiser for H.O.L.D (The Hillside, Oxtongue Lake and Dwight community group), on May 7.
