Spectators Invited Sunday 

Bowhunters from around the world have arrived in Ellicottville for the sport’s championship event this weekend at Holiday Valley where the best-of-the-best male and female shooters compete for the top awards in their classes.

Holiday Valley reports that well over 1,500 competitors from 12 countries are represented. This is the third year in a row that Holiday Valley has hosted the International Bowhunting Organization World Championship, and it’s the sixth time since 2008. Participation is by invitation only.

For shooters who haven’t qualified for the international event, Holiday Valley also hosts a Bowhunter’s Open during the IBO Championships.

All shooters will compete both Friday and Saturday. The top five scorers in each class will compete in the championship round on Mardi Gras on Sunday, when spectators are invited to take the Yodeler chair to the site and watch from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Advice to spectators: Archery takes concentration, just like golf, so while you’re watching, please pretend that you’re on a golf course and stay quiet. And remember that arrows are flying all over the place! Stand where instructed and hang onto your kids!

The public is also invited to visit the Bowhunter Market in the Yodeler parking lot Fri.-Sat. from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sun. from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

All hiking and biking trails at Holiday Valley are CLOSED through Sunday, Aug. 9.
