Kincaid and Indaya are the male and female winners in the Inaugural Bullseye Scavenger Hunt Competition held on July 26, 2015.
Dedicated archers and well-rounded athletes, Indaya Byer and Kincaid Kobel, were longing for the Inaugural Bullseye Scavenger Hunt competition. They both won with overall most points in Clermont’s first event of its kind on July 26, 2015. It began with a 10 yard archery contest at the Sundance Archery Range. Then, participants and their families drove to Historic Downtown Clermont to meet and conclude the competition with a scavenger hunt during Downtown Clermont Farmer’s Market.

The archers were not allowed to use bows with sighting devices and the highest possible score was 100 points. Byer, 12, was the winning female with her score of 86 points. Kobel, 6, was the winning male with his score of 63 points. They have been training for several months and this was their first archery competition.

“It’s exciting,” said the uber competitive Kobel who has competed in soccer, football, and karate.

“Archery helps Kincaid focus. It is a good sport for him,” said Beth, Kobel’s mom.

“It feels amazing to compete in archery for the first time,” said Byer who has competed in swimming.

“Alicia has been a great teacher. Indaya keeps improving. She has become more focused in school due to the archery and I enjoy that,” said Ingrid, Byer’s mom.

The photographic scavenger hunt was a great opportunity to bring new people to the farmer’s market since all participants have never been there before. The eager participants searched for 11 items along Montrose Street and took pictures of their finds. Byer and Kobel finished at the same time to win.

“The scavenger hunt was athletic because you are in a rush to take pictures and look for the items,” said Byer who averaged finding an item every minute and 47 seconds.

The winners received prizes from Sweets for You and Let’s Tie 1 On. The items in the scavenger hunt peaked interest in the participants to continue shopping at the farmer’s market after the competition ended.

Sweets For You is an outdoor vendor located on the intersection of Montrose and 8th Street. They have lemonade, iced tea, cinnamon roasted nuts, boiled peanuts, and other goodies. Let’s Tie 1 On has a variety of bracelets, necklaces, pendants, straps, and wraps.

“It’s a lot of different choices especially the fresh fruit and vegetables. All the vendors are so nice and some have free tastings. It’s a wonderful summer morning outing to get to know Clermont,” said Ingrid Byer who experienced the farmer’s market for the first time and looks forward to returning.

I was very happy to introduce new people to farmer’s market and see them enjoy the vendors. I want to thank Ron Smart the Executive Director of Downtown Clermont Partnerships, members of CDP, Let’s Tie 1 On, Sweets For You, and all the other vendors for their participation in this creative event.

My next Bullseye Scavenger Hunt will take place Sunday, August 23. Space is limited, but some space is still available. Children and adults are scheduled to compete. I will be offering a special prize to all participants. In addition, vendors will be giving prizes to the top male and female winners.

Back on May 20, 2015, my team of archers trained five months to set the world’s first ever 7-archer Ultimate 3-D Relay for fastest time. The 7 athletes completed 6 stations of strict form exercises followed by barebow 3-D archery shooting at a 3-D deer target 10-30 yds away. Their combined archery score took time off their relay race to give a final score of completion in 4:38 for a new Recordsetter World Record.

Join Alicia Weber’s archery & GET ENERGIZED in the excitement!

Alicia Weber coaches athletes in intuitive archery with use of the recurve and compound bows. She is all about building strong competitors and advancing archers without using any sighting devices.

Weber exclaimed, “We are proud to be part of this one-of-a-kind program in Central Florida where kids get the opportunity to train and compete in archery.”

Recently, her archers shot 30 arrows for score. They competed at 10 and 15 meters.
Nick Linkiewicz took first place for grades 7-8. Linkiewicz commented, “The program was very well-organized, with excellent friendly coaches, and an overall great time.”

Preston Pankalla took first place for grades 3-6. Pankalla won for the first time and exclaimed, “Cool. This is great. I am more confident now.”

Sean Pankalla added, “Since Preston started archery, I have seen an improvement in his focus and his desire to do well in competition and this spills over into his personal life. As a parent that makes me proud. This program is fantastic.”

Carolyn Pankalla mentioned, “Archery gives my son a chance to win. We are all created equal, but archery teaches us how to win.”

Ben Shuler picked up a bow and arrow for the first time in this 6-week program and he met his goals.

His mother stated, “I love archery for the fact that you have a specific target where you aim. It’s a wonderful metaphor for life because if we aren’t focusing on our God-given resources specifically, then we wander and become aimless. With the Lord guiding us, we will achieve the specific purposes that he has for us in our life.”

The parents stated, “We love the structure of the program and the hope that we see for future advancements is really exciting.”
We are looking forward to the advancement programs and preparing archers for competition. Contact 352-874-4363 for info.
