2004 Arizona JOAD Indoor
Hosted by the Precision Shooters JOAD (PSJ) at PSE
New State Records
Twenty three took part in the Arizona JOAD Indoor Championship. Ten
traveled from the Phoenix metro area, having negotiated the fog on I-10.
Eleven were from the Tucson area. One came from Payson and another from
Douglas. It was the first official tournament (Star FITA, State
Championship) for five of the JOADs. They gained valuable tournament
experience and had fun, too. Two were senior guests taking advantage of the
available tournament space.
Kathy Greene led this Star FITA tournament as the Director of
Shooting (DOS) and Alan Huff judged. Teresa and Alan Huff
took on the tournament director administrative effort and securing the
awards. They deserve a sincere thank you from all.
PSE made some great range improvements resulting in fourteen lanes
and a very large open spectator area. The dominant range feature was the
new large LED time clock made available by Alan Huff and a grant he secured
(Sportable Scoreboards ST-15). PSE staff member volunteer Beverly
helped the kid’s scoring, which was greatly appreciated.
At days end, each JOAD was awarded a first, second or third place trophy.
(PSJ arranged for a very nice new trophy style that was well received by the
contestants.) High score medallions were also awarded to Robyn Repp,
Lindsay Pian, Brady Ellison and Ryan Davis. In typical fashion the
JOADs “behaved” as young ladies and gentlemen that make up 99% of all
youths. For the most part the families represented themselves well by
recognizing the dedication and determination of their JOADs by supporting

JOADs, talk with many other JOADs, they know
best as to how things work.
We always find math addition errors on the
official score cards; take time to check the arithmetic before turning
them in. Calculators maybe used.
New parents are encouraged to surf the web and
chat with other parents about JOAD.
Focus on the good shots; forget the bad as if
it never happened.
Parent clue: If the JOAD wants you to watch,
watch. If they don’t, don’t and chat with other parents. We are all in

There are fast food outlets close to PSE on
Grant. Consider driving out before the lunch break and having the food
back just in time for lunch.
