Blazing Arrows archer Kelsyn Lohr focuses on the target while shooting herself into a third place finish in the Unlimited 15 and up category during the Blazing Arrows Marias Fair Archery Invitational held on Jan. 26. 

Sunday, Jan. 26, the Shelby Blazing Arrows 4-H Archery Club hosted the Marias Fair Archery Invitational. We had a great turnout with 94 archers competing in the invitational from around the state.  

Our Blazing Arrows archers have been practicing and preparing for this competition since October when we started shooting and will continue until the Bozeman State 4-H shoot the first weekend of March.

For the statewide invitational, seven of our competitors brought home 10 medals. For Bowhunter 9-10, Conner Ramberg took first, Parker Berthelote took second and Cael Blevins took third. For Bowhunter 11-12, Brenner Skeels took third. For Bowhunter 15 and up, Cade Hanson took second and K-leigh Skeels took third.  

For Unlimited 9-10, Conner Ramberg took second and Parker Berthelote took third. For Unlimited 11-12, Brenner Skeels took third. For Unlimited 15 and up, Kelsyn Lohr took third.

The Four-County Marias Fair event consisted of Toole County, Glacier County, Pondera County and Liberty County. Kelsyn Lohr received a trophy for top Unlimited and Cade Hanson received a trophy for top Bowhunter of the event.

For Bowhunter 9-10, Conner Ramberg took first, Parker Berthelote took second and Cael Blevins took third. For Bowhunter 11-12, Brenner Skeels took second and Dylan Clark took third.  For Bowhunter 15 and up, Cade Hanson took first, K-leigh Skeels took second and Riley Larson took third.

For Unlimited 9-10, Conner Ramberg took first and Parker Berthelote took second.  For Unlimited 11-12, Brenner Skeels took first.  For Unlimited 15 and up, Kelsyn Lohr took first, Rachel Hould took second and Cade Hanson took third.

For the 4-H Archery Project Interview, four Toole County archers got purple ribbons, with K-leigh Skeels receiving a rosette for one of the Top Interviewers. Through a project interview the 4-Her is asked what their favorite part of the project is, what goals did you set for yourself, what is the most challenging part and what are some safety rules to follow. Through these interviews the kids are learning skills they will utilize in the future.

Blazing Arrows has about three weeks left before the state shoot in Bozeman. Then we will end the year with a fun shoot and awards in March.
