This is our grand event for the year. It is a two day shoot that includes 5- 20 target courses spread through the woods. It features a two day competitive shoot, called the Warrior's Course, that requires the archers to shoot from assorted positions at targets that can be hazardous to their arrows. It also has the Turbo Hog, a fast moving target that awards the last archer standing in their category a gift card. And the Red Dot shoot that requires archers to qualify, and ends with one archer taking home a gift card.
There is a Lobster dinner Saturday night for an additional cost.
Primitive camping is available on site. There are also nearby campgrounds and hotels in Freeport and Brunswick, a short distance away, for long distance travelers that might want more amenities.
