Nickel Shoot-A-Thon – 12.4.21

2 min read

Ohio County Archery will host its 1st Annual Nickel Shoot-A-Thon on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at Bridge Street Middle School.

All OCA archers are encouraged to participate in this fun event!

Here’s how it works:

  • Register for a flight at here
    • Choose a flight – 2:00pm, 3:00pm, or 4:00pm
    • One flight per archer
  • Archers will pick up a Pledge form at practice.
  • Ask family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc., to donate and complete the Pledge form.
    • Two ways to donate:
      • Pledge any amount per point
      • Flat dollar amount donation (not based on points)
  • The day of the Shoot-A-Thon, scores will be tallied.
  • Archers will then calculate donation totals.
    • Examples:
      • $0.10/point, archer scores 200, the donation will be $20 (200 x 0.10 = 20)
      • $0.08/point, archer scores 200, the donation will be $16 (200 x 0.08 = 16)
      • $0.05/point, archer scores 200, the donation will be $10 (200 x 0.05 = 10)
      • $0.02/point, archer scores 200, the donation will be $4 (200 x 0.02 = 4)
      • $0.01/point, archer scores 200, the donation will be $2 (200 x 0.01 = 2)
  • The archer collects all donations and returns money with Pledge form to OCA by Sunday, December 12, 2021.
  • Cash and checks will be accepted. Checks made out to Ohio County Archery.
