On Saturday, Sawyer, Victoria, Madeline and Garrett participated in the Flathead Shooting Sports Invitationals.  The kids did wonderful!

The boys started things out in archery, Sawyer shooting olympic recurve and Garrett shooting barebow.  This was Sawyer’s first year shooting in this discipline and Garrett’s second.

Then it was on to archery again with the girls shooting barebow and Sawyer shooting primitive.

The day did have a few hiccups though, Maddie’s bow broke 2 days before the competition and she had to use a bow that she had never shot with.  So she didn’t shoot real well and ended up not placing.  Sawyer pinched his shooting finger in his bow the day before while stringing it and split the finger wide open.  It made for a bit of frustration on his part dealing with a hurt finger.

The kids did very well though, even Emma…

Tori ended up placing 2nd and receiving a silver medal in her age bracket, only loosing 1st place by 2 points!
