CHULA VISTA – Winners of the April Fool Archery Shoot held Sunday on the Rohr Arrowhead Club range in Bonita were announced this week by Mary Powell, in charge of publicity for the sponsoring Southern Border Archery Association.

Winners in the three sections were, as follows: American – Rube Powell, Fred Wilson, Frankie Smoot, Jim Butterwood and Bob Mitchell. Hunters – Jack Bice, Roger Redden, Walt Turkoc, Bettye Farmer and Kelton Ribby. Novelty – Wallace Corkhill, Harry Ross, Dick Kermond, Lee Simmons and Stephen Edney.

The awards were limited one to a person.

I think Mary Powell controlled most of the archery activities in San Diego during the 50’s and 60’s.
