Lincoln City, OR (August 24, 2021) – Lincoln City Archery will launch its first ever Lincoln City Archers League on Sep. 20, 2021. The League will meet for 10 Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 for camaraderie, fun and games. Individuals who are interested in improving their traditional archery skills are invited to sign up for the league in advance as space is limited to the first 20 people. At this time, archers will be limited to using traditional bows (long or recurve bows) of 35 pounds or less draw weight.
“We want to give local archers an opportunity to come together for some fun indoor activities,” said Shad Engkilterra, owner of Lincoln City Archery.
On Sep. 20, we will complete the paperwork for archers and give them a chance to shoot on the range. Available range time will be divided up, and we will use a pirate setting for an additional challenge. Everyone will get a chance to get their share of the pirate booty. Other games used during the league may include Nick, Nock, No!, Archery Baseball, Zombie Apocalypse, turkey shoot, and/or Duck Hunt tribute. Archers will help decide how events proceed.
“This is our first league, so I expect that we will be making some adjustments on the fly,” said Engkilterra. “We’re going to focus on fun and fair with some video game theory thrown in.”
A proposed calendar will be released before the Sep. 20 meeting. The cost for archers is $600 per person, which includes the use of range equipment and a discount for archery sessions during the week. Payments may be made on a weekly basis at the normal league night price of $75. League members may also be able to make up some events during the week. Awards will be given out at the last league night, Nov. 29.
