scores shot at their local archery clubs – offers competition for individuals

Clubs earning prizes for participation were
Wasting Arrows, of Reno, Nev., with the most individual archers competing; and
a two-way tie between Cincinnati Junior Olympians of Mason, Ohio and Newberry
JOAD of Newberry, Fla. for the most teams entered. All of these clubs will
receive an American Whitetail EZ-36 Target Mat and a package of 40cm and 60cm
“Our club has monthly pin scoring rounds and
although many of our kids have shot JOAD nationals, we had never really
participated as a club in the mail-in tournaments,” explained Kimberly Oliver
of the Newberry JOAD Club. “We thought it would be great for the kids to have
this opportunity to compete virtually. Many of them have been shooting together
for over three years and it was one more way to make JOAD even more fun and
challenging. Our club kids have earned over 100 pins this year!”
The 1st Quarter Indoor Mail-In
tournament kicked off on January 15, and will run through March 31, 2014.
Archers of all ages can participate, and for a very small fee enjoy the
excitement of a national competition without ever leaving their local USA
