Arizona JOADs gain valuable tournament experience at the State Championship. 

Eight AZJOADs named to the 2004 AZ Duel in the Desert Team.

 

The Arizona State Outdoor Championship was the Duel in the Desert Trials this year. 

44 Archers took part, 29 were Seniors/Masters and 14 were JOADs.  For four of the JOADS it was their first State level Tournament.  Several of the JOADs shot up in division in an effort to be eligible of the 2004 Arizona Duel Team.

 

Tournament staff included, DOS Nancy Myrick, Judge Vivian Koistinen, Tournament Director Mike Koistinen, Lead volunteers Wayne Davidson and Bob Pian.

 

Saturday:

The morning temperature was in the high 70s with the archers shooting into a steady headwind.  The "new to Star FITA" JOADs competed virtually incident free.  All were encouraged to wear sunscreen, drink water and snack to keep up their energy.  After the first distance was shot, scored and targets moved, an hour long lunch break was taken, some ventured over to the BASF practice range during the break.  The second distance took place with winds shifting to a tail wind and temperatures in the mid 90s.  The JOADs all seemed to be in good spirits after the first day, looking forward to day two.  The Duel team competition was very close in the menís compound division.

 

Sunday:

The weather was like Saturday except generally wind free, but warmer.  Elections were held at the lunch break for the ASAA board and Arizona Toxophilite award.  By days end the Arizona JOADs had all medaled in their division.  Eight were selected to the AZ Duel team that will compete against California at PSE in Tucson later this month. 

 

The experience was the most valuable benefit for all that took part in the Arizona State Championship.  Each will be better equipped to for future competitions.  The eight Arizona JOADs on the Duel Team will gain more valuable competition at the Duel.  

 

Note that the Duel in the Desert is an open tournament.   All JOAD divisions from Yeoman to Junior are available to all NAA member JOADs.
