Congratulations go out to Gabe Pinnecoose who participated in the 10th annual archery camp at Lake Capote August 2-3. He placed 1st in his age group, as well as getting the highest score in all age groups for the 3D archery course. He also had the longest shot in the long shot challenge. Gabe is 11-years-old and has been doing archery for the past three years. He was excited to shoot here after spending many evenings practicing for the Tribe's Tri-Ute Archery Team earlier this summer. Gabe shoots traditional archery (recurve bow) and also enjoys bowling, shooting his air rifle and fishing. Congrats again to you Gabe!
Youth archers ages three and up participated in a two-day archery challenge sponsored by the Southern Ute Police Department at Lake Capote Aug. 1-2.
