The Darrington Archers: “A Family of Archers” group is hosting two major events this summer.
The range has many levels of trails that help the performance of your shooting. Each area has 3D targets as of this year.
The group hosts field archery competitions and national championships for Olympic Archery.
Darrington Archers first event is The Olympic Championship on June 2-4 from 7 am to dusk or whenever the shooting course is finished.
Jack Barker, president of Darrington Archers, said some big names such as Brady Ellison will be at the range for the Olympic competition.
The second event is a community specific event named after a member of the archery group- Ralphie from July 15-16.
The Ralphie is a 3D archery shooting event full of fun times, community meetings and a roasted pig for dinner.
Barker describes the 2nd annual Ralphie as a time to relax, shoot our new 3D targets that we got this year and win prizes all day long.
The community can RSVP to Rita at (425)-308-5510 for the event.
The event costs $40 per family or $20 a person. The group would like an RSVP by June 30.
The Darrington community has many more archery opportunities all year around for archery competitions and membership. You can find more about these events
