2006 ASAA Indoor Championship, the biggest in a decade!


The 2006 ASAA Indoor Championship was a success in many ways with the ASAA and ERAU very willing to work together for future tournaments.

  • ERAU Golden Eagle Archery led by club leader, Tina Blake hosted what is likely the largest ASAA Indoor Championship in over a decade.  70 registered to compete.

  • Archers appreciated the easy on the legs and feet flooring, nice lighting, pleasant acoustics and ample archer and spectator seating and space.   The space was a little chilly in the morning, but soon warmed up once the archers began practicing.

  • Collegiate archery participant numbers were strong with 12 from Dine College, 6 from ASU, 4 from ERAU, and one from the U of A, 23 total. One ASU archer shot two robin hoods on Day 1.

  • The State Indoor Championship was covered by the Prescott Daily Courier and the ERAU press.  Some spectators came out on Sunday after reading about the event in the morning paper.  

  • The event created a good buzz on campus the following week and acted as a catalyst to jump start the Golden Eagle Archery Clubs spring efforts.

  • The tournament brought Arizona High School students to the ERAU Prescott campus and introduced them to the campus and program.

  • Out of town archers occupied approximately 50 hotel room nights and shopped and dined in Prescott, spending $7,500 to $10,000 during the two day event.

  • No problems thanks to conscientious Tournament Director efforts and ASAA Tournament Oversight quality control.



Travel: Archers came from the NE Arizona, Phoenix and Tucson areas.   All reported that the drive time was easy.  Fain Rd. and 89A provide an almost direct access to ERAU.


The Saturday morning lines ran on time with most of the archers local or having spent the night in Prescott.  The Saturday PM line was plagued with traffic issues on the way to an unfamiliar venue that delayed the archers arrival to the range.  The tournament was able to work in practice for all, including some during the announcements.  Scoring began only 10 minutes behind schedule.  There was only one equipment failure on Saturday.


Saturday evening, the archers had a variety of dining choices including, major chains, fast food and the many very down town Prescott eateries. Many hit the grocery stores for provision for the next day.   (This reporter heard good reports about the Antelope Hills Inn, Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn Express)


Sunday ran very smoothly with the archers familiar with the area and event set up.  The tournament preparation paid off.  No equipment failures.  Some very nice scores were recorded, another testament to the great venue and preparation by the archers and tournament staff.  At days end the officials and spectators took down the tournament targets, chairs and equipment in less than ˝ hours and made all ready for transport to storage.

It was great to have 5 NAA judges willing to serve.   


Note:  All were invited to compete at the 2006 ASAA State Indoor Championship so long as they comply with the NAA and FITA rules.  Only NAA members residing in AZ are eligible for State Championship awards.  By agreement NAA and NFAA member may compete in each others National Championships.
