The Tri-Ute Games Archery shoot was held for two days on an outdoor course winding through wetlands, over creeks, and onto a small mesa o f dry dirt and sagebrush. The first day was a more competitive shoot with teams from Northern, Southern and Ute mountain ute tribes intermixed in the target shoot. The second day a fun-shoot, as team Southern Ute shot together. Scoring was kept during the two-days and final scores tabulated at the end of the shoot. There was also a skeet-shoot pitting teams, drawn at random, competing to hit their targets in the shortest amount of time. Teams also competed in a dollar shoot, which had archers shooting dollar bills, each bill they shot, they kept – the two-days shoot was all in fun, nothing better than being outdoors, sharing laughs and letting arrows fly.
