Rain could not dampen the spirits of over 175 people at the Spencer County Fish and Game Club on Sunday.

The Backwoods Bowhunters Club sponsored a benefit shoot for the Michaella Monroe family. As the storms stopped and the sun came out after high noon, the crowd began to grow and many of all ages attended.
This was a family and friend event. Through the woods, up and down the hills and across the branches filled with water, 44 (28 men, 10 youth,  six women) bow shooters and some of their friends went along to support the shooters at the 30 stations.
Members of the Spencer County Fish and Game Club and the Backwoods Bowhunters Club, along with volunteers, assisted. The youngest PeeWee shooter was 4 years old.
Not only was Spencer County represented, but people from Frankfort, Harrodsburg, Culvertown, Shelby County, St. Matthews and Lawrenceburg all enjoyed the day.
Over 20 businesses and friends donated items for the event.
