2017 Spring Papago 900 Recap & Results

The first Papago 900 of the year was held on May 6th, 2017 at the Papago Archery Range.  We had 59 registered archers this year, including one of India’s State archers, an archer from New Mexico, and 9 different Arizona clubs represented. The temperatures were very pleasant for the Spring 900 with highs in the low 90s. The wind presented a little bit of a challenge for the archers and spectators during the 2nd and 3rd round, however, there was no need to delay or cancel shooting due to weather.

The Papago tournaments are known for being excellent first time tournaments to new competitors, but our events are favorable to many seasoned archers each year as well. With each tournament we have the opportunity to meet new archers, answer questions, take advantage of teachable moments and foster healthy competition among the seasoned archers too. Papago Archery takes pride in providing these opportunities and is always grateful to everyone that takes the time out of their weekend to support our shoots.

This year we saw the largest turnout yet in the Recurve Senior Male division with 9 competitors. This division had the only tied 1st place score that was decided by the greatest number of 10’s shot.   The highest total score of the tournament (874!!) was achieved, by Wade Flake, in the Compound Senior Male division. The top youth scores shot included an 871 by Zachary Neilson (Compound Cub Male) and an 870 by Cole Lickfeldt (Compound Yeoman Male).  A couple other honorable mentions include Robyn Repp with an 867 (Compound Senior Female) and Kiel Amundsen with an 860 (Compound Cadet Male). Excellent shooting archers!

Thank you to our Tournament Director – Kelsey Lard, co-coordinator and DOS – Kevin Ikegami, Judge – Lester Chin and ALL of the Papago club members that volunteered as field crew, concessions and all the other areas that are necessary to make a tournament run!! (Jocelyn, Jon, Dennis, Melanie, David, Derek, Ron, Julie, Kristy, Nick…so many I’m bound to miss someone – sorry!)

Please make sure to keep an eye out for our final Papago 900 of 2017 in October – the Fall 900 Halloween Shoot (October 28th, 2017).

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 .

2016 Papago 900 ‘Halloween Shoot’ Recap

 

The annual Halloween Shoot this past weekend, at the Papago Archery Range, was a big success. There were 65 archers shooting, having fun and competing. Several archers and spectators arrived in costume to show off their holiday spirit and the range had some spooky & fun decorations to add to the festivities.

Thanks to the recent range improvements that were completed, the archers were able to tolerate the unseasonably warm temperatures by shooting in the shade! The new canopy was a hit and enjoyed by all of the archers, while at the shooting line and during the breaks.

We started the tournament off with the national anthem, thanks to the use of a new PA system that also allowed us to have an audible timer system. The archers had music to listen to and we were able to provide announcements that everyone could hear. The shoot ran extra smooth thanks to these new enhancements.

Our top archers for the day were all from compound divisions ranging between Cadet to Master 60 Men. Tom Pollei finished the day only 25 points down with an 875! Cadet archer, Sean Kerby, was not far behind with an 870 and Larry Butterfield shot a whopping 869 in the Masters 60 division. Nice shooting guys!

Our Recurve Senior Men division was the largest division of the day and had the highest recurve score of the tournament with an 838 shot by Kevin Hubbard! Cadet archer, Zoey Wapniarski, shot the 2nd highest score of 792 and John McCurry in our Masters 60 division finished with a 781.  We had some amazing recurve shooters competing this weekend.

Although many of our barebow archers didn’t have competitors in their individual division, they all did a great job competing against their personal bests.  Our very own, Ron Shinn, topped the Barebow charts with a 633 in the Masters 60 division. Bowman archer, Cullen Bing, shot a 628 and Melody Richards rounded out the top three with a 462. Way to shoot straight!

We want to give a shout out to all of the clubs that take the time to help promote our events to their members, encourage their new archers to try out some friendly competition and help us provide the opportunity to teach new archers how a tournament works. We enjoy hosting these tournaments for the archery community. Without the archers, spectators, coaches & volunteers – it wouldn’t be possible.

Thank you, thank you to all of our volunteers on the field crew (Lester Chin, Jocelyn Horton, Dennis Mowery, Ron Shinn, David Smith, Chris Mussman, Zoey Wapniarski, and Nick Wapniarski) for coming out early and getting things set up, in the dark! Thank you to our concession stand volunteers – Melanie Mandelin, Mary Kirchmann, Jennifer Hjerpe, Willow & Macey – for making it possible for PAA to offer cold beverages & snacks to the archers & spectators.  Thank you to our judge, Chris Amundson,  for guiding the new archers, keeping everyone safe & all of your help throughout the day. Last, but not least, A BIG thank you to our tournament coordinators & directors (Kevin Ikegami, Kristy Wapniarski and Kelsey Lard) that bring it all together and make these events possible for us to host.

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