The Terrace Whiskey Jack Archers hosted an open house right alongside the Rod and Gun Club on Aug. 6 in Thornhill.

Club president Jaco Fourie said about 12 people came to learn about archery, five of whom enjoyed it so much they decided to join the club.

Some of them had some exposure to archery, but most of them didn’t,” Fourie said of the people who attended the event.

He added there were quite a number of women and children who showed interest, something he said was heartening to see.

The event was hosted at the club’s new facility in Thornhill, which was in use only for the second time.

Participants shot arrows from the a distance of 15 feet at targets.

Fourie said there is still work to be done on the archery centre, which includes fencing, indoor bleachers, outdoor siding and the completion of a kitchen unit.
