Wow, A wonderful Iron Archer tournament saw the
coming of age of USA Archery Arizona's target
archery development. Archers came from Brazil
and California to join Arizonans in
competition. 84 took part in the in the two 18M
x 600 qualification sessions on Saturday (down
from the full registration of 96 due to last
minute cancelations and day of no shows).
The top 48 moved on to Sunday's Round Robin
Matches of 8 flights of 6 archers each . The
point spread between top and bottom archers
within a flight ranged from only 2 points to 12
points so all flights were very competitive with
evenly matched competitors.
Each match was sponsored.
Match winning archers took home dollars thanks
to the Match Sponsors:
Match 1 Hawkeye Construction $2 per match x
24 = $48 Total
Match 2 Desert Sky Archers $2 per match x 24
= $48 Total
Match 3 Corner Archery $2 per match x 24 =
March 4 Paseo Vista Archery Club $2 per
match x 24 = $48 Total
Match 5 Susan and Dennis Swartzfager $3 per
match x 24 = $72 Total
On behalf of the archers, THANK YOU!
At the day's end, the 8 new Iron Archers came
from clubs and towns across the valley
Thank you to the judges and the volunteer score
runners! Special thanks to Desert Sky Archers.
We could not have executed the tournament
without the clubs hard work!
Youth are encouraged to take part, however
archers should be able fill out a score card
and communicate with other archers.
Need food vendor.
Find a way to provide separate compound
(open cumulative score) and recurve (classic
sets) Iron Archer round robin matches.
To speed up, consider Iron Archer tied match
total play off via (1) three arrow set/end
score, if still tied, then one arrow shoot
