December 4, 2004 - Round Three
Straight N Arrow Archery, Phoenix
The final 2004 Iron Archer 600 rounds took place at
Straight N Arrow Archery on Saturday. 23 took part in the AM line and
7 took part during the PM session. The majority of the contestants
have plans to compete in the upcoming indoor tournament season
including the 2005 US Indoor World Trials, National Indoor
Championship and the World Archery Festival in Las Vegas including the
inaugural AZJOAD Team Shootout.
Of note was the steady improvement in scores of many of
the competitors from tournament to tournament. Congratulations. The
archers experienced the fact that indoors can still be chilly, or
warm as the case maybe. Always come prepared for the unknown. It was
also nice to see some first timers take part in the Iron Archer.
Great for the growth of target archery.
The finale takes place in December 18, 2004 with the
Iron Archer Round Robin matches. Iron Archer 1200 round award
plaques, as well the Iron Archer Trophies will be awarded then. The
match groups combine male and female competitors as follows:
Top 8 recurve archers.
Top 8 compound archers.
9 thru 16 place compound archers.
The 12 arrow, head to head, match play competition is
identical to the 2005 US Indoor World Team Trials. Round Robin
experience is rare and provides valuable experience for Indoor,
Outdoor, Olympic US Team Trials Tournaments.
