Indoor archery takes over the Kin Arena in Dason Creek, April 2 and 3.

Over 100 archers planted their feet and let arrows fly at last year's event. The Dawson Creek Sportsman's Club is hoping this year's will be just as popular.

"It's just a fun shoot," Joe Simlik, archery director with the Dawson Creek Sportsmen's Club told The Mirror. It's the first tune-up of the year for archery enthusiasts and hunters.

Shooters are divided up by type of bow - compound or recurve - sex and age group.

Ten stations will be set up around the bare rink floor with three targets per station, Simlik explained.

Highest score from all three stations takes the prize for each category.

Shooters will get 11 points for a bulls eye, descending from there to 10, eight and then five points for the outer rings. Zero points for a miss.

Registration will go from 8 - 10 a.m., Saturday, the club says. The shooting can begin as soon as you have a group of four.

The main event, the Men's Bowhunter Open, will see an estimated 20 - 30 competitors, including Simlik himself.

The events will wrap up on Sunday with trophies and prizes by noon or 1 p.m.
