Jack Rowe of Sayre, Pa. was the Grand Champion at the Candor Fall Festival held this past weekend in Candor, NY. Jack edged out Doug Bassett by four points to retain his champion status!
The local contest included shots at assorted sizes of pumpkins – to maintain the Fall Festival theme – and a deer target. The final pumpkin shot measured how deeply the dart penetrated the largest pumpkin. Doug’s dart penetrated 11 inches and Jack’s 10 inches.
Young Atlatlist Marlin Bassett, 5 1/2 years, impressed young and old with his accuracy during the competitions. Melissa Dildine won the Women’s Division. Missy is in close competition with Lori Majorski for this year’s Women’s title. There are still a few more competitions for both women. Lori currently maintains the lead. Missy is this year’s reigning champion.
A number of atlatlists participated in the International Standard Accuracy competition and the IAS competition during the weekend. Thanks to all who participated and a special thanks to Doug Bassett and Sue Mercer for their help with the competitions.
