Seven Arizona archers competed in the National Outdoor JOAD Championships in Lebanon, Ohio June 30th thru July 2nd.

The temperatures were in the low 90ís with no rain. Light winds (the fans wanted more, the archers less), morning dew and blue skies let everyone have a great time.

The event also included an evening presentation by Tom Parrish, USA Archery High Performance Manager and National Coach Kisik Lee who presented the Best Technique.

The Cincinnati Junior Olympians put on a wonderful tournament with NAA president and past Olympic medal winner Darrell Pace adding humor to the commentary from the DOS stand.

Neil Foster, the official DOS, added commentary as many records fell.

The FITA qualifying round was held on Friday and Saturday, while the Jr. US Open was held on Sunday afternoon. The Open is archer vs. archer in a 12 arrow match. Winner moves on and the loser is eliminated. Matches continue until there is one archer standing.
