Quileute Tribal school targets out of classroom activities
For the first time this school year Quileute Tribal School members in grades 7-12 took part in archery activities at the Old Mill Archery Range.
Those participating spent about an hour being properly fitted for their bow and arrows and testing left and right eye dominance which can alter if a left- or right-handed bow is needed.
Facility owner Bill Sperry says that his range is one of the few that offers left-handed bows.As arrows whizzed toward their targets Jon Claymore, Quileute Tribal School superintendent/principal, explained that the school likes to get the students out to experience other activities and two younger groups of students were at the Forks Aquatic Center swimming and at Sunset Lanes bowling.
The archery range is at the 110 Business Park on LaPush Road and those that buy a membership have access seven days a week.
In late June the facility will be hosting Olympic Archer Medalist Khatuna Lorig, who trained the "Hunger Games" actors how to properly shoot with bow and arrow. Lorig will spend several days in the West End giving classes.
