OUR HISTORY - THEN
Game Country Archers was formed in 1981 as a non-profit society in Grande Prairie to “Foster and instruct and perpetrate the
practice of archery and the spirit of good fellowship among all archers” (prime objective, club formative articles).
The club took up residence at the new Grande Prairie and District Agricultural Society facility aptly named Evergreen Park.
The pristine wilderness setting, ample trails and natural open spaces of Evergreen Park provided the archery club with ample space for
a shooting range and common area, as well as wooded trails to set targets for outdoor archery tournament courses.
The executive members of the club in 1981 were Dennis & Mary Feldberg, Art Watt, Warren Nowoczin, Len Strynadka, Brian Lank and

The prime objective of the club has not changed, nor has its home. The club strives to involve families and especially kids in the sport
and various disciplines of archery. As youth represents the future of our sport in Grande Prairie, we promote archery to schools, user
groups, and youth camps. We also have certified coaching for all archery skill levels and disciplines. Evergreen Park still hosts the club
and its facilities, range, and tournament courses.
Game Country Archers Club stages indoor and outdoor 3-D tournaments, target (paper) archery tournaments, and special user
group events. Evergreen Park remains the best facility in Grande Prairie for these activities. Our outdoor facility consists of our
clubhouse, shooting range with 10 – 100 yard target butts, and a 20-Target 3D (animal) course.
Current membership is in excess of 160 members, ranging in age from 5 years old to 60 plus.
Our tournaments have participants from across our province as well as B.C.
Our facility is used to host training clinics for local school and other youth groups.
We help train instructors for other organizations (Camp Tamarack).
Members of Game Country Archers have competed in provincial and national level competitions, Alberta Winter Games, and even
the Archery World Championships in Las Vegas.
The Game Country Archers is made up of five Executive and four Directors.
Our goal is to pass on the experience of the lifelong sport of archery. Game Country Archers invites anyone with an interest in
archery to come and check out the club.
