Eighty traditional archers put their skills to the test in often creative settings at the recent third annual Rendezvous at the River.

he three-day event, attended by more than 100 people, was held at the La Grande Rifle and Pistol Club. It was for archers using long and recurve bows.

Archers did things such as:

• fire arrows at about 40 3-D wildlife targets.

• participate in a night shoot in which archers fired at glow-in-the-dark targets.

• take part in a poker competition in which they shot at cards. The most accurate shooters earned the best poker hands.

• shot apples off the head of a mannequin in a William Tell competition.

 

About half a dozen venders were present, selling traditional archery accessories. The Eagle Cap Traditional Archers and the La Grande Rifle and Pistol Club sponsored the event.
