Archer at the IBO World Championship

IBO World Championship

Avid archery enthusiasts from around the globe will participate in a two-day, 40 target qualifying event. Past events drew shooters from all across the United States and Canada, and as far away as Australia.

The scores from the two days are combined, and the top 5 shooters in each class will continue on to the championship round, which will be held on Sunday. Spectators are permitted on the course during the qualifying rounds and are encouraged to attend the championship round. Chairlift passes can be purchased in the Adventure Center.
