The Mount Marty College SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) Club will be holding an archery tournament on December 1, 2012 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Complex in Yankton.

From 10:00am - noon participants are encouraged to "Try It". Participants will have the opportunity to take a brief lesson from certified archery instructors with all the needed equipment provided. The cost is $4 in advance or $5 at the door per participant and students are young as kindergarten are welcome to register.

Beginning at noon a Celebrity Shoot will be held. Celebrity shooters include many Yankton school principals and Mount Marty College President, Dr. Joseph Benoit.

The main tournament will be held from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. There are four shooting categories: Adult Expert, Adult Novice, Youth Expert, and Youth Novice. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers will be awarded in each category. The cost to register for this event is $8 in advance or $10 at the door per participant.

Half of the proceeds from the archery tournament will go to support the newly created Yankton CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Chapter and the other half of the proceeds going to support the MMC SIFE Team.

MMC instructor of business and SIFE adviser, Lori Hofer, is excited for this fundraiser. "SIFE is a relatively new group on the MMC campus and we're excited to try this new tournament. We are also very enthusiastic about supporting the local CASA chapter. It's our hope that this event raises awareness of CASA as well as some money for them since they recently had their federal funding cut."
