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.

Papago Spring 900 Recap & Results (May 9, 2015)

papago900

PAA welcomed 71 archers to the range on Saturday, May 9th, 2015, for our first 900 Round tournament of the year. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather throughout the day. The tournament began promptly at 7:30 AM and wrapped up by 2:00 PM after the awards ceremony.

We want to thank all of the participating archers, coaches & spectators present that truly made this a fun, safe and welcoming environment for all that were shooting. There were several first time archers shooting that were able to learn from their experience in this tournament. It was such a joy to watch the transformation of these youth archers as they grew more confident with their shooting, arrow calling, scoring and even arrow pulling abilities as the day went on.

We wouldn’t have been able to host this fun shoot for the archery community without the many volunteers that came together to help out. We want to thank each and every one of you that donated your time, expertise and labor to help make this the successful tournament that it turned out to be!

We welcome any feedback that you may have for consideration in the future Papago 900 tournaments we will be hosting. Please feel free to contact Kristy with your comments.
