3D Archery Tournament
Shoot one of the most exciting archery events around. This is the all-new 3D Pop Up Challenge using a new computer system developed by one of the best archers in the country. Match your skills on the seven to ten target system. Targets pop up in random order and are up for eight to twelve seconds with possible delays in between, so you will have more time than our old system. Shooters could have multiple targets at one time, no shoot situations and running targets. The archer needs to be ready at all times for the next target, then react and shoot. This is as close to a real hunting situation as you can get indoors!

Joe Martin - Snakes of Texas
Joe Martin's snake show is about more than just shock value.

They want to teach you how to distinguish between the poisonous coral snake and the non-poisonous milk snake, which have a similar coloration.
