The Edinboro Shooting Scots Archery Club will host its first annual Shooting Scots Tartan Tournament April 14-15 at the Gem City Outdoorsman Club in Fairview.

Founder and current president of the club Rachel E. Walsh said the tournament, which is open to all ages and experience levels, was created to bring other archery clubs to Edinboro and to help promote both the university and the sport of archery. 

Walsh, a senior, placed seventh in the traditional category among adult women at the National Field Archery Association Indoor Nationals in March. Jennifer L. Lane, the club’s vice president, finished 12th in the adult female freestyle limited recurve competition at the same event. The team currently ranks first in Pennsylvania for recurve freestyle.

Walsh said the team has worked hard to put the inaugural event together while moving through the competition season.

“To finally have this opportunity is an honor, and I am so very proud of my archers for everything they have done to make it happen,” she said. “It shows the spirit of what the university can accomplish together.”

Registration for the tournament is $30 for adults and $15 for children. Anyone interested in participating can register at form.jotform.com/80626222840148.
