2006 Arizona JOAD Outdoor Championship


JOADs numbers were down from 25 last year, only 18 this year.  AP testing and prom weekend kept some away.

(4 from Precision Shooters JOAD, 8 from Straight N Arrow and 6 from Mesa Targeteers.)

Adult participation was the same as last year at 10.

The one day one shooting line FITA  ran right on or just ahead of schedule.

Arizona Junior and Collegiate Archery set up the field in Friday PM.


Temperatures were in the 70s in the morning and reaching the mid 90s in the afternoon.

Breezes in the AM and became gusty after lunch.  The new FITA windsocks were put to good use.


Parents of Gary Yamaguchi, Margret Bullard and Heather Brunelle assisted the Yeoman and Bowman scoring all day.  The tournament could not have run smoothly without their efforts.


The 45 minute lunch break between the second and third distance was just enough time to get a bite to eat, drink lots of fluids and rest a little and still keep the tourney running quickly.  In the PM the archers were given a 5 minute break midway thru the distance and a 15 minute break between distances. 


This year, no longer available US Olympic Bean Bag Archery Bears in collector boxes were given as awards to all the winners and participants. 


Five Arizona JOADs set new state records at this years tourney (link to records).



  • Arizona Junior and Collegiate Archery (AZJCA) for the Field set up. 

  • Volunteers helped move and stake targets and put equipment away, thank you! 

  • All pitched in to put the equipment away.

  • Registration, Field Set-up: Bob Pian

  • Awards, score cards, and webpage: Janice Price

  • NAA Judges:  Rockne Repp  (Back up  Bob Pian)

  • Director of Shooting: Ed Votruba

  • Tournament Director: Bob Pian


One day FITA format:  The tournament is traditionally Arizona’s only one Day FITA provides All of Arizona Archery at least one chance a year to compete in a one day STAR FITA.  Archers ages 7 to 70+ took part from start to finish.
