The community of Erickson is all set to welcome some of the best archers in the province this weekend.

On Sunday, April 14, Erickson Recreation Centre -- located on 29 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in the community -- will host the 2024 Manitoba Indoor 3D championships. 

The one-day event will see practices taking place between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. with round one shooting starting right after practice. This leads up to the awards ceremony for group two which wraps up the event at about 4:30 p.m.

Registration is full at this time and Myles Meir says archers of all ages will be taking part.

"We have some pretty good competitors," said Meir. "We also have some archers that will be shooting for the first time. It's going to be a great experience for all involved."

Myles also welcomes spectators from all around to the community.

"When we're able to do something like this into the community, it brings awareness to the hunting community and the archery community," added Meir. "It's something that you don't often see in a very small town. It's very beneficial for the community and everyone around it."

The club is also hosting a 3D Target Prize Raffle and a 50/50 Raffle. McMunnys Restaurant, located on-site will be open all day to serve breakfast and lunch.

So if you're looking for something to do on Sunday, Erickson Recreation Centre could be the perfect spot to see all of the action.
