A Bright Future for Archery

Archers have strong showing at nationals

Minnesota archers had a strong showing in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) Nationals, May 12-14, in Louisville, Kentucky.

For the first time, a Minnesotan was a first place finisher. Rowen McAllister of St. Croix Preparatory Academy in Stillwater finished first out of 2004 high school girls and received a limited edition Genesis Bow, a large trophy and $20,000 scholarship as a reward.

In all, 241 competitors traveled to represent Minnesota at nationals. Also earning top honors were Noah Cagle of Robert J. Elkington Middle School in Grand Rapids (fifth out of 2,625 middle school boys); Anna Whitcomb of Princeton High School in Princeton (third in the 3D shoot); Hope Williams of Princeton High (second out of 1,697 elementary school girls); and Emma Juetten of Milaca Elementary School in Milaca (fifth out of 1,697 elementary school girls). Each year students qualify at the state-level NASP competition.

In the schools, NASP aims to train teachers and provide students with the best equipment, training and curriculum available for the lowest price. Through the DNR, schools can receive grant money for archery programs.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
