CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A world class archery competition will be held in West Virginia in just a few weeks. Governor Jim Justice and Division of Natural Resources Director Brett McMillion announced Wednesday the IBO World Championships will be held August 9-11 at Cacapon Resort State Park near Berkeley Springs.
“It’s very exciting and gives us an opportunity to showcase West Virginia and our State Park system,” said McMillion.
The event will continue a relationship which has grown for the past decade between the International Bowhunting Organization and the West Virginia State Park System. West Virginia began hosting the first leg of the organization’s triple-crown competition at Pipestem Resort State Park over a decade ago. The event brought in between 750-1200 shooters with added guests.
