2015 Pro/Am Update
Thanks to everyone who joined us in Florida. Our attendance was up by over 200 shooters from last year although many were unable to make the trip due to the weather conditions. Hopefully everyone got home safely.
Based on last year’s Phenix City / Uchee Creek record attendance we will be shooting the Young Adult, Open C, Bow Novice, Youth Boys, High School Pins and Middle School Pins classes at 8:00am and 3:00pm on Saturday. As we posted in the Tour Guide, these classes will have the option of shooting their first round at 2:00pm on Friday and then their second round at 8:00am on Saturday. Based on sunset at 7:30pm we will have plenty of daylight and we will have the awards for these classes starting around 6:30pm on Saturday.
Please note that as of 3/10/15 anyone registering for Open B class will shoot 8:00am / 3:00pm Saturday times and will have the 2:00pm Friday / 8:00am Saturday option.(Those registered before 3/10/15 still shoot Sat. / Sun.)
As part of the program for those who complete their class competition on Saturday we will host our 30-yard class youth shooters in the Opti-Logic Youth Team Shoot at 9:00am on Sunday for a $5.00 entry fee with prizes for the first and second place team. The LimbSaver range also will be open for the Young Adult, Bow Novice, Open C and Open B classes for starting times from 8:00am to 10:00am on Sunday.
Hope to see all of you there,
Since its inception in 1993 the Archery Shooters Association, headquartered in Kennesaw, Georgia, has hosted tens of thousands of amateur and professional archers from across the United States in national and state 3-D competitions. The state level organization is known as the ASA Federation, while the national level is the McKenzie ASA Pro/Am Tour. The Federation has chapters in 30 states with over 7,000 members and 300 clubs. Features that distinguish ASA competitions include standardized competition rules; professionally executed shooting ranges; high standards for dress and conduct; safety standards that include a maximum arrow speed standard; the copyrighted 12-ring and 14-ring scoring system; and the largest paybacks in national competitive 3-D archery.
ASA 3-D Archery: ASA 3-D archery features competitive rounds of 20 lifelike, three-dimensional animal targets made of foam. The scoring rings are not visible from the shooting stake and binoculars are allowed. Advanced archers must determine the distance to the target, pick a good aiming point, and execute the shot. The ASA was the first archery organization to implement a speed limit for safety and to establish a level playing field for 3-D competition. Beginning in 2007, the ASA was the first national organization to incorporate known distance competition to provide competitors with another option for competing in 3-D archery.
McKenzie ASA Pro/Am Tour: The ASA Pro/Am Tour is a national series of six Pro/Am tournaments, plus the Championship “Classic” which are recognized as the best run, highest paying, and most exciting events in 3-D archery. Competitors pay entry fees based on their competitive division in both pro and amateur classes, and they receive cash awards, trophies, and accumulate points toward the prestigious “Shooter of the Year” award in their class.
If you are a target archer, bowhunter or just interested in getting started in archery, the ASA will provide you the opportunity to meet and share experiences with new friends, learn about the latest equipment, improve your archery skills, and spend time with great people.
