Prince Rupert is hungry for Archery

Eagle Eye Archers hold their annual indoor Christmas 3D Shoot at Pentecostal Tabernacle

The Prince Rupert Eagle Eye Archers held their annual indoor Christmas 3D Shoot this month in the basement of the Pentecostal Tabernacle church.

The event is one of a series of four shoots done throughout the year, which include Valentine’s Day, Easter and Halloween. The goal is to raise some funds to keep the community group running through the year.

“We’re a community organization and anyone is welcome to come out and shoot,” said Cory Hoff, vice-president of the archery organization. “It’s one of the only sports in Prince Rupert that the entire family can do. It doesn’t matter if you are five or 95, you come on down and can do it as a family.”

Hoff said archery as a sport remains alive and well thanks to The Hunger Games movie triology, a dystopian science fiction-adventure film where the heroine uses a bow and arrow as her weapon. As a result, the club has seen several successful years, with membership on the rise and a spike in interest.

The club shoots Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
