(BLOOMINGTON) - Monroe Lake will host an estimated 1,200 bowhunters in a national archery competition next summer.

The "second leg" of the International Bowhunting Organization's (IBO) National Championship Triple Crown tournament will run from June 10-12 at Fairfax State Recreation Area.

The Triple Crown of Bowhunting consists of three tournaments hosted in separate states. National championships are awarded for various age, sex and equipment classes.

Initial planning and prep work for the tournament site at Monroe Lakes Fairfax State Recreation Area has already begun.

"There will be 10 to 15 courses, with around 200 total targets," said Corey Rieman, Monroe Lake assistant property manager. "We will be using most of the fields and woods on the western side of the recreation area."

New shooters are welcome. Those who aren't IBO members are allowed to participate in one IBO tournament as a guest.

"We hope that local bowhunters take advantage of this opportunity," Monroe Lake property manager James Roach said.

There also will be a large vendor area open to tournament participants and the general public.

Local vendors interested in participating should call (812) 837-9546.
