2015 Pro/Am Update
Special 10 am shoot times - See Below
Our second event at Phenix City / Uchee Creek had 1,716 registered shooters and 1,672 scores posted. Despite the gloomy forecast the weather cooperated which allowed everyone to enjoy a great weekend. Hopefully the weather in Paris will also cooperate and we’ll see record numbers in Texas!
The Pro Classes will shoot their first competition round on Friday and we will hold the Pro Pressure Point ShootDown Saturday night. We will have the Scottie Norrell Team Shoot with Pro partners on Thursday hosted by Lamar County with an entry fee of $15.00 which includes lunch and a full Team Shoot payback. Friday will feature the amateur only Team Shoot.
The annual Red River Shoot Out for Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas will be held Saturday night immediately following the Pro Shoot Down. Anyone shooting the Team Shoots on Thursday or Friday from these three states can have their score qualify to be on their state’s team in their class.
The Bow Novice Class is the only class we are currently scheduling for two rounds on Saturday. As posted in the Tour Guide when classes are scheduled for both rounds on Saturday they will have the option of shooting their first round at 2:00pm on Friday and their second round at 8:00am on Saturday. Due to this Friday option all 30 yard class competitors may also elect the Friday / Saturday option.
There will be a special 10:00 AM Saturday start time for the Women’s Open A, Women’s K-45, Senior Open, Unlimited, Open B, Senior Known, Known 45, Women’s Open B, Women’s Known 40, Senior Hunter, Crossbow, Young Adult Male and Hunter classes. This will allow for a better flow of shooters on and off the ranges.
We look forward to seeing 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.
