Local Officials Give Archers A Western Welcome

Bruce the Bison welcomes one of the archers from the Chilean team just after arrival in the Sioux Falls Regional Airport on Saturday, June 6.

During the course of the weekend, nearly 400 archers/coaches/officials were given welcomes designed to provide a lasting impression as they stepped on South Dakota soil for the first time.

Members from the Yankton Chamber of Commerce, the Yankton County Historical Society, Dakota Territorial Museum and other volunteers waited at the bottom of the Sioux Falls Regional Airport concourse to be one of the first sights archers would see before heading south to Yankton.
