Some of the top Georgia Archers went to The Vegas Shoot

tumblr_inline_n0j4ozCIsL1qf55v4The Vegas Shoot, known as the largest and most prestigious indoor archery tournament in the World, attracts everyone form novice to Olympic archers from around the Globe. This shoot had more than 2,500 archers at South Point Arena. We had 30 Georgia Archers go and try their luck in the BIG Show. With lots of classes we had archers in lots of them. The Vegas Shoot introduced the new Young Adult Championship division (Freestyle and Limited Recurve).  These new divisions allowed young archers (ages 15-17) to compete for cash prizes on the same Arena floor as the best archers in the World.  2015 also introduced a new partnership between The Vegas Shoot, Easton Foundations and the NFAA Foundation.  Archery scholarships awarded to the top archers in all Junior divisions.

We had some Georgia Archers make top 3 places in their respective classes.

I want to say great job to EVERYONE that shot from the great state of Georgia.

With 2500 plus archers just shooting is a great accomplishment. We also got to watch the shoot down with Georgia’s Own GRIV commentating. You did a great job, thanks for filling us in on everything as we watched. If you missed it here is a link http://youtu.be/5BLytxmfxak . One day Georgia will have one of the up and coming archers in the BIG SHOW. Are maybe some of the older ones will make it back (Griv).
