Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brown County will be holding a 3-D bow shoot - themed “Aiming to Help Kids” - to raise money for the local program.
The event is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. July 26, a Saturday, and will be held at the Brownwood Bowhunters Association range on Farm-to-Market 45 South.
Sponsored by Buckmas-ters American Deer Foundation - Heart of Texas Chapter, this is the second 3-D bow shoot BBBS of Brown County has had since it began organizing last summer.
“Last year we had about 50 participants and raised about $3,000,” said Amber Moore, regional executive director for the Brown County group. “We would love to see both numbers double this year. Every bit of the money raised here, stays here, so it really helps the kids here.”
Entry fees for those who preregister are $20 for adults and teens 14 years old and older and $10 for youth age 13 and younger. Moore said registrations would be accepted the day of the shoot, but all fees will go up $5
“Early registration is best, for obvious reasons,” Moore said.
Registration forms are available at the BBBS office in the Family Services Center, Weakley-Watson, Wal-Mart and On Target Archery and Taxidermy. Anyone interested in sponsoring or who has questions can contact Moore at the BBBS office 643-5600 or her husband, Brian Moore, at 641-8267.
The shoot is organized so there are three divisions for adult participants with the top three scores being awarded trophies in each division.Youth 13 and under will have a division as well, and the top three scores will be awarded trophies as well.
