IBA Fall Festival Wrap-up
A great weekend no matter how you look at it. The weather cooperated very nicely! If you missed the Fall Festival, you missed a good time. Thanks to Pine Lake Archers for hosting the event and all the fine food they prepare in their clubhouse. Many thanks to all the people who volunteered with novelties, registration, course, and other jobs to help make the FF go smooth as it does. Volunteers are how the IBA operates and these things don’t just happen on their own. We appreciate people stepping up and volunteering to accomplish these things.
A lot of awesome donations were made by the following companies or people; along with a fine group of target sponsors. All of the target sponsors are shown in this section. Without these generous people and organizations, this event would be just another shoot. So a tremendous THANK YOU to all of the following. Please support those who support your IBA.

If anyone would like to see some changes or improvements, please provide your input to any board member (see the IBA website or Bowhunter for contact information). All suggestions will be considered and we’re always looking to make this a better event going forward. Thanks again to all who shared in the Fall Festival experience and we wish you all the best in your upcoming hunting seasons.
Next year, both the Fall Festival and Spring Banquet will be coming a bit earlier due to how the calendar year shapes up. After that, we’ll be back on our normal dates.
