Shoot for the Rim returns to TRSC site

Retired law enforcement officer Les Conner moved from California to Payson years ago armed with a love for archery. He had taken up the sport in about 1997 and in Payson he missed the camaraderie and competition of a California archery club of which he once was a member. So, in the summer of 2008, he talked members of the Tonto Rim Sports Club into hosting a first-ever 3-D archery shoot with plans for it to become at least a twice-a-year event. The first shoot was a success attracting about 45 competitors from around Gila County. With the success, Conner opted to host a second shoot about four months later. It, however, was held in cold and windy conditions which meant only the hardiest of archers showed up to participate.
