The club has been through a rollercoaster ride of emotions, as over the weekend it was the victim of an unfortunate incident involving a break and enter and vandalism.
This followed last week's announcement that the archery club would be hosting the 2012 Indoor 3D National Championships.
According to the Fort St. John RCMP, the break-in occurred between Sept. 30 and Oct. 3, and cost an estimated $2,000 worth of damage to the club’s outdoor range.
Any information regarding this incident should be directed to the Fort St. John RCMP at 250-787-8140.
Despite the setback, the New Totem Archery Club will be running its indoor program as usual. Regular club hours include Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30-9 p.m., as well as Sundays from 1-4 p.m.
They also offer a Junior Olympic Program, which runs Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 and is open for anyone interested 18 years of age of younger. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult while shooting.
The club is still in search of sponsors and volunteers for the National Championships being held in Fort St. John. Anyone interested can contact Julie Bouck at 250-787-8717 or visit the club’s official website.
