If your registration is postmarked by March 19 and your name is not on the list please email me at info@arizonacup.com

Tournament Shirt Update:  

Thanks to our AAE sponsorship and Arizona's own Antigua®:

Shirts have been upgraded to a high quality Antigua® brand shirt in their Desert Dry™ fabric with embroidered tournament logo.  Men's style will be a polo style and women's style is a partial zip up tunic.  Both in short sleeves.

There is no silk screening, so there will be no archer names on the shirt back this year.  If those of you who pre-purchased a tee shirt would like to cancel, that is okay, but we hope that you will love these shirts when you see them.  We are honoring the $20 pre-purchased tee shirt price, but they will be sold at the field for $25/shirt.  (Note these shirts retail for around $65 in shops)

We will also have embroidered hats this year.
