The 2019 Spring 900 was a big success. We had 76 archers on the line Saturday morning shooting 3 rounds at 3 different distances. There were 17 clubs represented from all around Arizona and a guest team, the Grizzlies, that drove all the way up from Mexico!

There were many new archers competing for the first time outdoors and many returning familiar faces. There was plenty of friendly competition going on and some killer scores shot by archers across all of the age divisions and disciplines.

Thank you to Suja Juice for supplying the participants with the tasty juice & kombucha drinks and thank you to everyone that participated as either an archer, coach, spectator or volunteer! We appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to seeing you in the fall at our Halloween Shoot!
