We are working in partnership with 7 archery clubs working together to bring a National 3D Event to our community. We all have taken part in many of the last National shoots. Along with the Mother of All Shoots, Indoor Nationals, Vegas, and the Rinehart 100.
We are fortunate to partner up with Silver Star Mountain Resort. It is in Vernon BC, right in the middle of the OkanaganValley. There is Kelowna International Airport only 20 minutes from the city. Along with plenty of hotels and restaurants in the area. The Valley is known for many other attractions that will accommodate everyones interests .
We feel this venue with the scenic surroundings and the breathtaking views overlooking the Okanagan Valley will make for a great shoot that people will talk about for years. Silver Star is prepared for us with plenty of hotel rooms, plenty of parking, and camping in the village.
Silver Star is a unique , new feeling for the archery world. It would be the first event were everyone was centrally located. This will make people visit and take part in the events without being spread over the whole community, creating more camaraderie in our sport.
Visiting with other shooters has brought it to our attention that people are interested in our area. Not only from an archery standpoint, but as a tourist destination to plan your summer vacation. We feel our valley can accommodate everyone. From the water skier, the golfer,the houseboater, all the way down to the person who just wants to float down the river with his tube. There is also world class restaurants and even vineyards if wine tasting is your thing.
One of the things that we have come up with, is all the earnings go back to a charity. Some people have brought it to our attention that there might be some extra money at the end of the shoot. We have decided to Pay it Forward. This will bring good attention to our sport giving back to the community. We also feel if things work out between us and Silver Star, that we would like to make it a yearly event. (on a different date )
