The 20th Arizona Cup is in the books.....

The website is working on archiving photos, but in the meantime please enjoy the photos from our photographer's websites linked in the left column under "Photos".

AZ Cup records were set and the Records page will be updated soon.

We would like to thank our old friends from Great Britain, Mexico and Canada and our new friends from Australia, Norway and England for attending the Arizona Cup and hope to see them all back again next year.

Thank you to all the United States archers who have continually supported the Arizona Cup for 20 years.  Ed Eliason was awarded the "Still Going Strong" award for competing in 16 of the 20 AZ Cups.

Thank you to our judges who help maintain a fair and efficient tournament for all.

Thank you to the Easton Foundation and Danage for letting us try out the hand held scoring system during challenging conditions.

Thank you to our Sponsors for once again delivering where it counts.

Thank you to USA Archery,  COPARCO and FITA for putting us in the World Ranking Tournament schedule.

Thank you to Ben Avery Shooting Facility for allowing us to maintain a quality venue.

And of course we couldn't do any of this without our small, but dedicated staff of volunteers (mainly JOAD parents) and the guidance of previous tournament directors.
