What coming up for AZJOADs?


First, join the NAA if you are not already a member.  My I suggest a family membership so that mom and dad can compete and take part in coaching and judging activities.  To join the NAA visit www.usarchery.org and the click on the membership link.


Now What? 


The last scheduled  STAR FITA, the Duel in the Desert will take place on October 23-24, 2004  at PSE in Tucson.


What should Arizona JOADs be doing there after this fall?


The answer is to get ready for the 2005 indoor January, February and March tournament season.  At a glance, there may seem to be lots of time between “now and then”.  Experience tells us that with Thanksgiving, semester end and the winter holiday season (Christmas), there is not much time at all .  Join the NAA if you are not already a member.  


To get ready for the indoor season, keep going to your JOAD club, and take advantage of remaining 2004 tournament opportunities including:
