Important info for the 2018 GAA State Indoor Championships

Hello archers!
We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend for the GAA State Indoor & JOAD Indoor Championships. Here are few things to know to prepare for this weekend.

Please check your information and send any corrections to Any changes to target face selection must be sent by Friday at noon. Requests made the day of the tournament will only be accommodated if space allows. Target assignments will be added to these links later this week.

Bring a copy of the signed waiver. These will be collected at check-in.

Each round will begin at the scheduled time with 4 ends of official practice. Archers may also practice at ALC for a reduced fee of $5.00 per session. Equipment inspection will begin 1-hour prior to each shoot time. (Or immediately following the completion of the morning line.) Don't forget to bring your bowstands!

Limited seating is available for spectators. You may bring (more conformable!) chairs. Seating is provided for the archers behind the shooting line. 

Both lines at 1:00 are full and will be crowded. Any archers interested in moving from the 1:00 line to the 9:00 line should email to request a change. 

***Sunday, 1:00 Line- All Senior and Master Archers*** To address accessibility for our para-archers and additional numbers, you are scheduled to shoot across the street from the arena in the Fountain Square shopping center. The range is located down the sidewalk from the ALC Proshop and will be marked with targets out front. (This is the location of the annual ALC Halloween and Christmas shoots.) If you do not have any access issues (able to navigate a few stairs) you may choose to shoot in the arena at 9:00. Email to make this change. Thanks for your understanding to this adjustment! We are excited to see such a large crowd on Sunday!

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
