For the third year, the Annual Bradley Wallin 3D Archery Shoot is gearing up for another weekend of archery fun for the kids at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

“Our goal is to basically just make a lot of money for St. Jude’s,” organizer Luke Quinn said. “Between this shoot, the baseball tournament and the St. Jude run, we do pretty good for St. Jude for being such a small town.”

The shoot will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at Coal Hollow Park, formerly Camp Neighborhood House.

This year will once again feature Rescue 33 serving breakfast on both days of the shoot, with profits also going to St. Jude’s.

There will be 50-target super-shoot courses and a two-man scramble Saturday at noon.

“We started the scramble last year and drew for people’s partners,” Quinn said. “This year we are letting people pick their own partners.”

During the weekend, there will also be special events for children to help them master their bow skills and have outdoor fun.

One yearly staple of the kid’s area has been the balloon target shoot and this year will be no exception.

The weekend will also feature several novelty shoots and games.

There will also be hundreds of raffles and door prizes throughout the weekend.

While big ticket prizes usually come in at the last minute, the shoot already has several tree stands, a deer mount and several ground blinds to give away.

The tournament is done in remembrance of Wallin, who died of bone cancer in 2004.
