Report from Damon Don

Precision Shooters JOAD, Tucson


The 2006 National Target Championship took place last week.

The following youth archers from Arizona participated in this event: Ryan Davis(cadet recurve)

Tony Don (cadet recurve), Brady Ellison(junior recurve),  Annette Gorelik( junior recurve), Mack Huff(cub compound), Maggie Huff(junior recurve), Max Lambert( junior recurve),  Robyn Repp(cadet compound), Cassndra Vortruba (cadet compound) and Maku Wood (junior recurve).

The weather at the tournament was mixture of sunny skies and thunderstorms.

Oftentimes the wind picked up in the afternoons which made the shooting more interesting.

For the most part the tournament was well run; there were very few delays and the field crew were timely in replacing targets.

We found some notable restaurants in Colorado Springs.

For American food the Steaksmith was excellent.

It had delicious well age beef and a nice salad bar. 

The Black Bear Diner on Academy Blvd. served good, hearty portions for a moderate price.

We also ate at Luigiís.

It is a Colorado Springs tradition for Italian food.

Itís located downtown on Tejon St. For Mexican food we ate at small tortillarilla at Circle Rd. and Airport Blvd. It had great burritos and it was located near the park.

There are several Korean restaurants that served very authentic food according to Dr. Bob Park.

Many shooters finished well in this tournament.

Brady took first place in the Fita, won the U.S. Open, and qualified for the World Team. Maggie finished fourth in the U.S. Open and was first in the World Trials.

Tony, Ryan and Robyn shot well in the double FITA to participate in the World Team Trials.

Maku Wood, Ali Wood and Kari Granville won the open class for womenís recurve in the Team round.
