For those of you already familiar with Papago Park, these events and open practices will be using tournament type 52” foam butts on wood stands.  The steel frames and excelsior bales will not be used.


The new 30 meter call-in  (hosted by ASAA’s Ted Harden) is sure to be a popular event at Papago.
