We had a great turn out and the weather even cooperated! It was so great seeing so many returning faces, as well as so many new faces. The kids we talked with were so excited and had great stories to share all weekend. We had some that were nervous and pushed through to conquer some fears! it is so great be able to provide this opportunity in our area. The growth in kids just from one year was also so cool to see. Not to mention the quality of people that come out are top notch from Participants to spectators and all the volunteers you wont find a better crowd! We greatly appreciate the support from all of our Volunteers and sponsors. We couldn't do this without you. We look forward to hosting this event for many years to come, as long as we have support and volunteers to make it happen.
See you again next year,
Hanna and Nic Buxman

Please bring your own equipment if you have it (bow and arrows, shotgun, .22 rifle, muzzleloaders) We will have some loaners available for those of you that don't have everything.
