This past Wednesday Trojan Archery deviated slightly from its longstanding Halloween tradition of pumpkin carving and monster hunting, opting instead for a more nuanced approach of shooting games and a costume contest. Members took aim at ghosts, Cthulhu, a six-legged spider unfortunate enough to find itself on the receiving end of our archers’ arrows for the second year in a row, and the ever-present tic-tac-toe (because at the end of the day, there’s still nothing quite like a good old-fashioned team chant to close out the night).
We also found ourselves a surprise addition to our team that evening: a pumpkin deemed worthy by our good Social Chair to serve as top prize for the winner of the costume contest, affectionately nicknamed “Igor” (or was it “Igourd?”) by the club members and almost universally decreed as the most adorably hideous pumpkin any of them had ever seen.
Until next time, shoot on!
So evidently “next time” came a lot sooner than we had planned. But it’s okay, because there are awesome Halloween photos to share with you all!
This past Friday, Trojan Archery continued a long running tradition of the club and hosted our annual pumpkin carving and monster shoot. Our members took off the kid gloves and took down some monsters. They then threw down even more gloves (finger tabs?) to take a whack at carving pumpkins, the result of which is disturbingly spectacular. If you don’t trust our judgement, check them out for yourself below the break.
Even our dearest beginner-teaching webmaster got into the spirit of the holiday by attempt to jump-scare his way into a photo. It would have probably worked better if he hadn’t looked like a grape though…
Until next time, fellow Trojan, shoot on!
P.S. Here is another video to get you into the Halloween mood. We present to you, the Sanderson Sisters (aka Bette Midler, Peggy Hill, and Carrie Bradshaw).
Do you want to prove yourself to be the Pumpkin-g of Trojan Archery? Then come join Trojan Archery for some pumpkin carving this upcoming Friday, October 27th and the subsequent shooting of the carved pumpkin on Sunday, October 29th at the Pasadena Roving Archer range! You bring the artistic finesse, and we’ll bring everything else.
Even if you’re not feeling the pumpkin hype, come join us this Friday anyway as we will be hosting our Halloween Monsters and Creatures shoot. Channel your inner Helsing, Katniss, Winchesters, or even Elizabeth Bennett (from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies that is) and try to take down our Social Committee’s collection of monstrosities (I really hope a particular tentacled Old One will be in the mix, but let us not tempt fate)!
Hope to see you there, and until next time: shoot on!
P.S. Here is something to forcibly help put you into the Halloween mood.
