Miles Tuba

Members of the Bighorn Bow Hunters Club in 100 Mile House enjoyed a sweep of wins last weekend.

They were competing at the Kamloops Target Sports Association Archery 3D Shoot at the Kamloops Archery Range, April 2-3.

Tamara Van Loon won the Ladies' Traditional category with a two-day combined score of 443.

The Men's Traditional first-place bragging rights went to Bob Plewes with a combined score of 599, and Adrian Messner won the Senior Men's Traditional with a two-day score of 595.

According to Kamloops club director Brian Dennis, archers were challenged on the first day of the shoot with very gusty winds, which lowered the scores.

Regardless of the poor weather conditions, attendance was good, with 102 archers competing at the event.
