Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Kansas State Championship Tournament
The Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Kansas State Championship Tournament occurred this last weekend on August 2nd and 3rd in 2015. Though I was unable to shoot, the Junior Outdoorsman did his best in the Youth Boys class and rose the top of the short list, a very short list that is. Unfortunately, he was the only shooter in his class though he made the best of it and shot his arrows at both the unknown and known yardages.
Location and Lunch
The tournament was held at the TriCounty Rod and Gun Club near Linwood, Kansas about thirty minutes away from our home and started around 8:30am though we arrived early to get signed up and practice a bit before the official shooting started. We shot the 20 known targets and 20 unknown in about 4 and 1/2 hours with an hour off for lunch. We ate a couple of hot dogs and chips and appreciated them immensely.
Shooting with Traditional Archers means good time will be had by all. I find most of the trade to be upstanding citizens in addition to being very helpful to their peers as well as any shooters they are grouped with. We started with 9 arrows in the quiver and through several misjudgments we ended the shoot with only 5. A total score of 225 was fulfilling due to the high temperatures and humidity.
