70m Qualifier / OR


Hosted by the Precision Shooters JOAD (PSJ) at PSE

May 8, 2004

Tucson, AZ



Precision Shooters JOAD  hosted a NAA sanctioned Olympic Qualifier and Olympic Round.

17 archers competed on a single shooting line.  4 were Arizona JOADs preparing for the Junior World Team Trials.  Practice began at 9:00 AM


One noticeable change was the NAA dress code allowance of Khaki, shorts, skirts and pants.   Khaki is defined as a dull brownish yellow, or drab color similar to olive drab.

Denim and cut offs continue to be prohibited.


The Khakis were very welcome as tournament temperatures reached in the upper 90s and there were only light breezes.  Kathy Greene was the DOS and Alan Huff judged.  Each donated their time.


The 72 arrow, 70 meter Olympic Qualifier went smoothly.

After a lunch break, everyone was ranked to compete in the Olympic Rounds.

16 stayed to compete in the Olympic rounds.

One quarter final match took place then all shot the semi-finals.

Bob Pian stepped in to help judge and allowed the Gold and Bronze medal matches to take place one after the other, side by side. The tournament was over by 3:00 PM with the weather continuing to be delightful.


PSJ donated all of the tournament proceeds after expenses ($15/archer entry fee), over two hundred dollars, to the Arizona JOADs that win a team spot on the 2004 US Jr World Team.

AZJOAD now has a total of over two thousand dollars in the fund!  The 2004 US Jr team will compete in England in July. 


Thanks PJS for hosting the tournament and supporting the US Jr World Team.
