2017 Master’s Outdoor Championships Recap & Results


Papago Archery Association was pleased to be a part of the Inaugural AZ State Master’s Outdoor Championships this year. With the introduction of the Master’s USAT division this year by USA Archery, the AZ State Association wanted to facilitate a competition for our Master’s archers that would provide a multi distance format. The Papago 900 was the perfect fit and we were thrilled to host the Championships this year.

There were 24 registered archers for the tournament and 23 that competed on April 22nd, 2017. Archers arrived at the range in the morning to complete equipment inspection and set up for the first round distance of 60 meters.  We were able to run a single shooting line with 2 archers per bale that kept the pace of the tournament running swiftly.

After each round, the field crew completed a reset to bring the bales closer by 10 meters, for a total of 3 distances (60/50/40 meters).  The archers opted to have short breaks between the distances, as opposed to break for lunch. As a result, the competition completed around 11:30 am and was immediately followed by awards.

We want to thank all of the seasoned archers that took the time out of their weekend to participate in the event and keep things moving so smoothly throughout the shoot. Thank you to the Papago club members that volunteered to set up the field and to the spectators that stopped by to support the sport of archery. We couldn’t host these events without everyone that participated!

Papago 900 Arctic Challenge Recap & Results

2016-5

Archers competed in the 2016 Arctic Challenge this past weekend in weather that was far from challenging. Clear, sunny skies and temperatures in the 70s made this shoot one of the most enjoyable outdoor tournaments of the year.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have any first time competitors for this annual shoot. However, we did fill the shooting line with seasoned archers from around the valley.  12 different clubs were represented on Saturday at the Papago Archery Range. We are grateful to each of the archers and their clubs for the continued support throughout the year. Our tournaments wouldn’t be successful without all of the participation.

Thanks to a killer crew of volunteers & our coordinators, the tournament ran smoothly from set up to break down. Archers began shooting their first practice end at 9am and were walking away with awards around 12:30pm.

Highlights from the day include the top score of the tournament being shot by Waylon Hjerpe (Recurve Bowman Male) with a whopping 866! Kiel Amundsen shot an 858 (Compound Cub Male) and Dan Kolb (Compound Master 70 Male) rounded out the top three with an 856 . Richard Greiger & Walter Smith fought hard in the Compound Master 60 Men division for the Gold with only a single X determining the winner. Nice shooting guys!

Thank you to everyone that participated this past weekend to help make the Papago tournament a success (volunteers, parents, archers, coaches, etc) ~ we couldn’t do it without ALL of you!

A complete list of the archer’s scores from the tournament can be found here in the FINAL RESULTS .
