Local archers can hit their butts with both hands.

Over the last two weekends several members of our club and other local archers participated in the Utah Open in Salt Lake and the Idaho Open in Pocatello.

I thought I’d take a moment to list some of the local archers who shot well.

Utah Open:
Seneca Francis — 1st Women’s Open
Darrin Baird — 1st Men’s Bowhunter
Kerry Baird — 3rd Men’s Bowhunter

Idaho Open:
Seneca Francis — 1st Women’s Open
Amber Christensen — 3rd Women’s Open
Shelby Remund — 2nd Women’s Bowhunter
Kerry Baird — 1st Men’s Bowhunter
Darrin Baird — 2nd Men’s Bowhunter

Week 2: Poker Night (bring quarters)
Week 3: Intro to Tournament Shooting
Week 4: Team Shoot
Week 5: Blind Draw Teams
Week 6: Open, if you have any ideas for what you’d like to do this week email us with the contact form.

Compounds at the Olympics

Check out this article I was linked to from the NY Times.

Compound Bow, a Sport’s ‘Ugly Stepchild,’ Is Still in Exile

Doug Mills/The New York Times

At the 2012 Games, archers used recurve bows at Lord’s Cricket Ground.



LONDON — More than 100 athletes competed for 12 Olympic archery medals over eight days at the majestic Lord’s Cricket Ground, but the archer who may be the most dominant in the world spent most of the time sitting at home in Idaho.

Bill Schaefer/Associated Press

Reo Wilde is the top-ranked compound archer in the world but cannot compete in the Olympics with that bow.

The archer, Reo Wilde, won the past four World Cups. He holds six world records. And at a recent competition, he twice fired 10 X’s, or shots to the innermost ring on the target, in a 15-arrow sequence. The most X’s anyone else has recorded in 15 arrows is seven.

Cache Valley Daily Article About Club Archers

You can see the article on Cache Valley Daily’s site or read below.

Seven local archers are making noise in the world of archery and putting themselves on the map.
Based out of Cache Archers in Logan and Bear River Archers in Preston, Idaho, Riley Whiting, sisters Lindsay Argyle and Amber Christensen, father and son Kerry and Darrin Baird, and best friends Seneca Francis and Nicole Bassett have each left their own mark on the sport.“We all shoot at the two local clubs,” Bassett said. “We all met there, though some of us have shot together for years. You meet some of the best people in the world. You can go to one meet a year, see those people once a year and it’s still big smiles and fun.”

Leading the way is recently-crowned national champion Whiting and national tournament participant Lindsay Argyle. At the 128th National Target Championships held on June 28 in Hamilton, Ohio, Whiting overcame a tough field of competitors to bring home the compound junior men’s title.

And while Whiting came home victorious, Argyle struggled at the competition due to illness. The 23-year-old from Weston, Idaho suffered from food poisoning the second day of the tournament, and struggled, losing her first match.
