Dec. 14, 2002 - 600 Round at Archery Headquarters
The Arizona “Iron Archer” series began on November 16th with 15 compound and recurve archers competing in a 600 round. The series 2nd event took place on December 14th at Archery Headquarters in Chandler where only 8 of the original 15 competed. The top 600 round for each archer was used for rank and seeding for the December 21st round robin at Archery Headquarters. The archers highest single 600 round score was used to better mimic the World Indoor Trials round robin seeding where a single 600 round was used for placement.

Archery Headquarters Round Robin - December 21st
Seven round robin matches took place among the 8 round robin competitors. Compound and recurve archers competed together. Frank Pearson graciously shot as “Mr. Bye” and won 5 matches. There were four match ties where the matches were won in one, two and three arrow shoot-offs. This proved to be truly exciting and great practice for the Trials.
The compound bow division proved to be very exciting with Jon Brewington winning all of his round robin matches and ultimately the tournament.
Lindsay Pian won the Olympic bow competition.
Trophies were presented for first place in the form of “six pound iron shots” on a maple base and tourney prize money paid out.
